WOW air Overview
Normally we use this section to explain how to create and manage your airline account as well as earn and redeem points.
WOW air is different because it has none of that. It is an ultra-budget airline in every respect.
Rather than learning about earning and redeeming points, you’ll want to focus on learning about WOW air’s many fees and how to minimize them. See our in-depth review of Wow air with plenty of information about their seats, amenities, customer service, baggage and more.
No Online Profile:
WOW air does not have online account registration.
You’ll need to enter your details for every booking and look up reservations by confirmation number.
WOW air Fares:
WOW air has 3 types of fares:
- WOW Basic – ticket plus personal item
- WOW Plus – adds carry-on, checked bag, and see seat selection
- WOW Biz – adds priority security and boarding, plus a meal
WOW air Seats
Depending on aircraft (check here), you have multiple seat options. The better seats all come at a price!
- Standard seat in front (29″-31″)
- Standard seat in back (29″-31″)
- XL – extra legroom (32″-33″)
- XXL – extra legroom (35″+)
- BigSeat – (37″+)
You can use the Optional Fees & Charges tool to look at further options for your specific trip.
No Partners or Interlining:
WOW air does not partner with other airlines. Only WOW air connections on the same ticket allow through-checking.
This means if your travel involves multiple airlines, or even multiple WOW air tickets, you’ll need to treat each as separate for purposes of check-in and baggage. So there is no “interlining” — checking luggage to final destination across multiple airlines. Allow extra time for connections!
If your travel is disrupted, WOW air will not rebook you on any alternate airlines.
They Can’t Escape the EU:
Since WOW is based in an EU member state and all travel on WOW air involves travel to or from Europe, tickets are eligible for EU 261 Flight Compensation.
WOW’s stopover option allows a free stopover in Iceland on round-trip tickets between North America and Europe.
There is no fee for the stopover, and you can stay as long as you want (up to the ticket validity limit of a year); however, the connecting flights you choose may be more or less expensive than a normal connection.
To book a WOW stopover, simply check the stopover box at the start of your flight search to review the options.
