On Friday 13th May 2016 the very first WOW air flight touched down at Bristol Airport, the flight was operated by an Airbus A320 TF-BRO arriving at 11:10am from Keflavik International Airport. The first flight marks the start of a new service from Bristol Airport to Iceland with connecting flights to various destinations in the USA. The flights will be operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and we are hoping after a while the airline starts sending Airbus A321 aircraft as well as the Airbus A320 that operated the first flight.
Simon Fewkes from Bristol Airport Spotting was privileged to be able to be airside for the aircrafts arrival and for promotional shots on stand while the passengers disembarked. When passengers arrived at the airport they were greeted by Jane Austen and Isambard Brunel giving them a real sense of the west country. Thanks to the airport for this opportunity and to airfield operations for the positioning alongside the runway for its arrival.
