I am surprised they have so much emphasis on 'safety' as opposed to value for money in their About Us which is more like a mission statement. European airlines have a very good track record for safety anyway so safety is generally regarded as something that is expected from the European airlines.wow air said:ABOUT US

Interesting development. It'll be fascinating to see how this pans out and whether we are at the beginning of a low cost transatlantic revolution. We've been there before in a way with Freddie Laker but that was a different time when flying wasn't the everyday experience for most people that it is now.Wow have launched low cost flights between Europe and the US. Could this be signs of things to come. Ryanair have repeatedly said they intend to enter the low cost market between Europe and the US?
I would think that if the idea became a real success then regional flights to UK airports would be extremely likely.Cheaper flights to the states could also open up regional flights to the US instead of the reliance on hub airports.
WOW Air will fly to Dallas Fort Worth starting from 18th May 3 weekly.
At least Flybe aren't the only airline to have one season wonders...Dallas/Fort Worth: Three times weekly service to be discontinued from 26-Oct-2018
EWR is their big market. It's difficult for an Airline like WOW to keep costs low at Airports like NYC and also get the slots they need to meet their bank of flights and connections.I'm surprised they cut JFK!
Didn't see that one coming! Better outcome than one of them going bust I guess.Icelandair have agreed to purchase WOW subject to approval.
