WOW Air USA

WOW Air konkurs – alle flyafgange aflyst fra 28. marts 2019.

Flyselskabet har i længere tid forhandlet dels med den amerikanske kapitalfond Indigo Partners om investeringer i WOW Air samt dels med Icelandair om evt. overtagelse af nogle eller alle af det kriseramte flyselskabs aktiviteter. Alle forhandlinger førte imidlertid ikke til noget, og det er således grunden til at WOW Air stopper alle flyaktiviteter med øjeblikkelig virkning.

I slutningen af 2018 var der en større fyringsrunde i Wow Air, hvor selskabet skilte sig af med hver 10. ansatte. Samtidigt blev en række af selskabets ruter lukket. Flyselskabet havde 10 ruter tilbage, men i den seneste tid har selskabet kun haft syv i drift.
