WOW air Relaunch Delayed Until December

The company which took over WOW air’s bankruptcy has delayed their first flight until December, FlightGlobal reports. The airline was originally scheduled to begin operations this month. The delay was announced yesterday in a statement from Michele Ballarin, chair of USAerospace Associates, which acquired WOW’s assets following the airline’s bankruptcy in March.

“Wow Air intends to be fully operational in December with ticket sales hitting the market in November,” the statement to FlightGlobal reads. “Significant market adjustments have taken place since the announcement of the re-launch of WOW Air. This contraction of carriers has provided an increase in aircraft inventory previously not available in the late summer. Wow Air will take this opportunity to acquire and reconfigure our launch aircraft in the best interests of our customers and shareholders.”

The statement does not disclose any information about the airline’s schedules, routes, or destinations. USAerospace did state upon acquiring WOW’s assets that it planned to restart operations between Washington Dulles International Airport and Keflavík.
