WOW air will make a decision on its first international base later this summer, revealed the Icelandic LCC’s CEO Skúli Mogensen. The base will be chosen from a list that has been whittled down to three candidate cities.

“Dublin Int’l is a contender, I hope to make that decision by the summer and hopefully we can initiate something by next year. I like Dublin for a number of reasons. It has pre-clearance to the United States. It’s a well-known hub of air expertise. The airport has grown a lot, so there’s a lot of incoming traffic.”

– Skúli Mogensen

Founded in 2011, WOW air currently offers regular budget flights to either side of the Atlantic Ocean from its Reykjavik Keflavik hub. In Europe, it currently serves Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Poland, Sweden, and Austria.

WOW serves Montréal Trudeau and Toronto Pearson in Canada as well as Baltimore Thurgood Marshall, Boston, Los Angeles Int’l, Miami Int’l, Newark, Pittsburgh Int’l, and San Francisco, CA in the United States.

Mogensen added that WOW Air may even use its new base to develop its first routes into Asia in the future.
