welcomes WOW air, the ultra-low-cost transatlantic airline from Iceland, and their new
nonstop service between San Francisco and Reykjavík, which begins today. The airline
plans to operate service between SFO and Iceland five times per week, using new
Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

 
“I am pleased to welcome WOW air to San Francisco – the Innovation Capital of the
World,” said Mayor Lee. “SFO is the international gateway to the Bay Area, and this
new service links two great cities of culture, tourism, and technology. I fully expect this
flight will be a success.”

 
“I am proud that WOW air has chosen SFO for its expansion to the West Coast of the
United States,” said Airport Director John L. Martin. “We share WOW’s passion for
making air travel an enjoyable experience, and SFO guests can look forward to a fun,
economical way to travel to Iceland and beyond.”

 
WOW air was founded in 2011 by technology and telecommunications entrepreneur
Skúli Mogensen, initially offering service to 20 major European cities before expanding
operations to North America. With the addition of service to San Francisco and Los
Angeles, WOW will service six cities in the United States and Canada, using new Airbus
A330 aircraft with 340 seats in a single-class configuration.

 
WOW plans to operate flights between San Francisco and Keflavík International Airport
five days a week, scheduled to allow for connecting flights on to other European
destinations. WOW expects to double its capacity in this year, serving over 1.8 million
passengers worldwide.
