The end of operations of WOW air
Although the revenue of WOW air was growing in recent years, in March 2019 the low-cost carrier announced to cease its operations along with all flights. The company tried until the end to avoid this, discussing with investors and Icelandair about a possible acquisition, and decreasing its employees and aircraft fleet.
