- WOW air welcomed Brussels (BRU) to its network on 2 June, with the carrier beginning four times weekly flights from Reykjavik/Keflavik (KEF). The 2,145-kilometre route, which will be flown on A321s according to OAG schedules, will see flights increase to a daily frequency from 13 June until the start of W17/18 when the city pairing will reduce back to a four times weekly rotation. The airport pair is already flown by Icelandair which operates the route daily on its 757-200s. This brings to 19 the number of cities now served by WOW air in Europe this summer. Rome and Nice which were served last summer are no longer served in S17. The airline celebrated its fifth birthday on 31 May and will soon be launching two more destinations in the US, Chicago and Pittsburgh.
