WOW air is a low-cost airline based in Iceland, which made its inaugural flight to Paris on 31 May 2012 and began full operations the following day. The airline's main base is Keflavík International Airport. Its headquarters are in Reykjavík, Iceland. WOW air is the second low cost airline to be based in Iceland after Iceland Express, which was founded in 2002. WOW air acquired Iceland Express on 23 October 2012, becoming the country's only budget carrier. The acquisition saw WOW air make extensive changes to its schedule in order to accommodate the majority of Iceland Express' routes. WOW air applied for its own air operator's certificate in April 2013 and planned to fly to 15 destinations in summer 2013; and has stated that it would do so with a fleet of four 2012-built Airbus A320 aircraft leased through Avion Express and Air Via.
