Icelandair Group is set to acquire Icelandic rival Wow Air. Reports indicate that the group intends to keep the brands separate. All of this is subject to shareholder approval.

Wow Air has been struggling recently, and the recent delay of its first A330neo has not helped matters. Airbus has informed the carrier that the first A330neo will now not be delivered until at least February of 2019. The reason behind the delay is a matter of debate for both Airbus and rival Boeing. It can be summed up quickly, Rolls-Royce.

This can't be good for the traveling public? Even though they are named different, they will now be the same company. Less competition and prices go up.

I am wondering about that as well. I also have to wonder, is there a need for two international airlines in Iceland?

WOW I believe is their low cost carrier. I guess Icelandair wants to put their competition out of business. Sound familiar.
