WOW air begins Canada operations

WOW air has completed its first flight to Canada using an Airbus A321 Extended Range aircraft.“I'm thrilled to be aboard the first WOW air flight to Canada, and to start connecting Canadians with Europe at super low fares,” stated Skúli Mogensen, CEO of WOW air. “The fact that the first plane is touching down in Montreal – a city I lived in for nearly a decade – makes this extra special, as Montreal means a lot to me and my family.”“We've been so pleased with the demand that we made the decision to increase capacity on both of our Canadian routes,” continued Mogensen. “We are excited about the response to our super-low fares that start at $99 CDN, and will continue adding even more interesting destinations across Europe at great prices for Canadian travellers, which already includes cities such as Paris, Lyon, London and Frankfurt, to name a few.”There are now five flights per week servicing Montréal's Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport (YUL) and six each week servicing Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) via Reykjavik. The airline's Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 family of aircraft will carry passengers between Reykjavik and other European destinations.“Aéroports de Montréal is extremely pleased to welcome WOW air,” announced James Cherry, president and CEO of Aéroports de Montréal. “With its very attractive fares for flights to Iceland and Europe, WOW air represents an interesting option for our passengers. Today, the airline officially becomes the first ultra low-cost carrier flying out internationally from Montreal-Trudeau.”
