Cork Airport - WOW Air

Mixed fortunes at Cork Airport as Wow Air drops flights but Norwegian seats selling out rapidly
Norwegian began transatlantic flights from Cork on July 4. All flights on the route are completely sold out for the first three weeks of August.
THE decision of Wow Air to axe its winter schedule from Cork to Reykjavik has led to calls for an enhanced marketing strategy for new routes.
Lord Mayor Tony Fitzgerald expressed his disappointment at WOW Air’s decision to suspend the Cork Reykjavik route for the winter months.
He hopes a concerted drive to market the route can prevent it being cancelled completely.
A decision has yet to be made on whether the route will re-start again next summer.
The flights began five months ago as an all-year-round route that included the option of connecting flights to the United States.
In a statement, the airline said: “WOW Air will continue to operate its Cork to Reykjavik summer season service until October 27 next, at which point the route will be suspended for the winter season ahead.
