WOW air was welcomed to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg on the borders between Switzerland, France and Germany with a fire-truck salute. The weekly operation competes with Iceland Express, which operates with the same frequency.
- New Icelandic LCC WOW air has launched two new routes to Switzerland from its base in Reykjavik (KEF). Basel (BSL) will be served weekly during the peak summer season and Zurich (ZRH) twice-weekly. The Basel route is already served by Iceland Express on a weekly basis but the Zurich route is not currently served by any other carrier. According to Innovata data, the Zurich route was offered by Edelweiss in the summer of 2008, by Swiss in the summer of 2009 and by Iceland Express last summer, all of these routes operating just in July and/or August and with just one weekly flight.
