WOW Air Ceases Operations – What to do if you have booked flights with WOW Air

As you may be aware, WOW Air announced on the 28th March that they were ceasing operations. This means all of their flights are now cancelled. Below we have some advice if you were due to travel with WOW Air.

What should I do if I am due to fly with WOW Air today?

If you are due to fly with them, please do not go to the airport – you will not be able to fly.

What should I do if I am booked on a future WOW Air flight?

If you have a future booking, there are a few options open to you:

Getting a refund for a WOW Air flight:

You can either request charge backs from your credit card company or, if you’ve booked through a travel agency, check if they’re ATOL protected. They might be able to help you get compensation. If you’re not too sure who the travel agency you’re booked through is, their name will be against the charge on your bank statement or on your booking confirmation.

Making a claim for a WOW Air flight on your travel insurance:

Another option is to check with your travel insurance provider. Chances are that’ll cover you for extra costs for getting home and refund your flights. This caries from policy to policy so please double check and speak to your provider if you’re unsure.
