WOW air Baggage

What are WOW air’s Baggage Rules?

WOW air passengers on all flights may carry-on one small bag for no fee. Larger carry-on bags and all checked bags (hold luggage) are subject to allowance fees that you may pay at the lowest price online up to 24 hours before the scheduled flight departure. If you are beyond the 24-hour, then you may pay the allowance during online check-in up to one hour before your flight departure or during airport check-in, however, higher fees might apply. 

There are five categories of fees for baggage on WOW air:

  • Flights under 4 hours
  • Flights between Iceland and the US East Coast or Canada
  • Flights between Iceland and the US West Coast
  • Connecting flights between US East Coast or Canada and Europe
