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.”
