About Wowair

WOW air is an Icelandic airline based out of Keflavik International Airport and headquartered in Reykjavik. It is a low-cost airline that was established in 2011 and began operations after purchasing the network of the now defunct Iceland Express airline. Since its first flight in 2012, the company has built up a fleet of 8 aircraft. Included in this fleet are a mixture of Airbus A320, A321 and A330 planes.

WOW air operates flights to destinations in North America and Europe by taking advantage of Iceland's unique location. WOW air flights serve more than 20 cities in various countries, with most of its destinations located in Europe. There are however also some in Canada and the United States. Some popular travel hotspots served by the airline include Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Berlin in Germany, Dublin in Ireland, London in the United Kingdom and Los Angeles in the United States. Although it has not joined SkyTeam, oneworld, Star Alliance or any other airline alliance, it does have codeshare agreements with Scandinavian Airlines, Alaska Airlines and Finnair.

Online check-in

Passengers can check in online for a WOW air flight regardless of the route they are travelling on. For this, they will need their booking confirmation number. The earliest that it is possible to check in online is 24 hours prior to a flight, with the latest being 1 hour before takeoff. If passengers are travelling to the United States on a non-direct flight, online check-in opens 24 hours before their second flight's scheduled takeoff time. The online check-in process can also be used to select seats for the flight and purchase additional luggage allowance. When they are finished, passengers can print out their boarding card. The airline also has airport counters where checked luggage can be dropped off.

Hand luggage allowance

Passengers are entitled to a single item of hand luggage on all WOW air flights. This single item is limited to a maximum weight of 5 kg and maximum dimensions of 56 x 45 x 25 cm. Passengers can also pay to add an extra 7 kg to their hand luggage allowance. In this case, they are still only allowed 1 item up to 56 x 45 x 25 cm, however it may weigh up to 12 kg. Passengers can also bring 1 carrier bag of duty-free purchases on board the aircraft. This will not be considered to constitute part of their hand luggage allowance.

Checked baggage allowance

A checked luggage allowance is not included with standard WOW air bookings. Passengers can choose to add a checked luggage allowance to their booking either when they are purchasing the ticket or at any time up until 24 hours prior to their flight's departure. This can be done online or by calling the airline's customer service team. Checked luggage items are subject to a maximum weight of 20 kg and to a combined height, length and width of 158 cm. Luggage heavier or larger than these limits will incur excess charges. The airline will also refuse to carry any luggage larger than 32 kg.

Check in was horrendous. Clearly lack if staff. Same with boarding. We queued 1 hour for check in with any other airline it would have taken 15-20 minutes! Staff members -only two of them were disinterested/keen/rude

Never fly Wowair. All Tripadvisor reviews accurate. We sat 06 January 2018 for four hours on tarmac Toronto airport. No Wowair customer support provided throughout journey and upon arrival in Reykjav?k, where we were stranded a night. Suitcase still missing days later. If found, Wowair will not deliver to home address; must retrieve from nearest airport (one hour away, no car).
