Wow Air

Ice­land’s Wow routes transat­lantic trav­el­ers through its Reyk­javík hub, al­low­ing it to use smaller, less ex­pen­sive planes. It mar­kets the stopover as a fun add-on for ad­ven­tur­ous trav­el­ers.

Level

In­ter­na­tional Air­lines Group, owner of Spain’s Ibe­ria air­lines, is behind Level, a new Barcelon­abased car­rier that takes ad­van­tage of Spain’s rep­u­ta­tion for low air­port taxes.

Ai­ra­sia X

Malaysia’s Ai­ra­sia X is the first low-cost Asian air­line to fly into the U.S. with a new route con­nect­ing Kuala Lumpur; Osaka, Ja­pan; and Honolulu. The car­rier hopes to roll out more Asia–u.s. flights.

La Com­pag­nie

Fly­ing be­tween Ne­wark and Paris, La Com­pag­nie of­fers a sin­gle-class cabin with 74 near-lie-flat seats and com­pli­men­tary French wine—at a frac­tion of the typ­i­cal busi­ness-class air­fare.
