Nonstop flights from Iceland to Islamabad

I am proposing that WOW Air start a flight from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Pakistan, specifically Islamabad.

The problem I'm trying to solve is that since the exit of Pakistan International Airlines from New York last year, there are only 4 airlines available to go to Pakistan from the United States. (Emirates, Qatar Airways, Etihad Airways, Turkish Airlines)

Due to limited options for Pakistani consumers, the likelihood of price increase to that market, in my opinion, is high, while the population of Pakistani expats continue to grow in North America.


Islamabad recently has received a new international airport which has been tested by British security teams to be the first Pakistani airport to be safe for European airlines. So I believe to have a European airline to enter the Pakistani market, especially a low-cost airline like WOW Air, will be a slam-dunk not only for passengers/consumers, but for their business.

They can capture connections from the United States and Canada to Pakistan via Iceland, which will give them an edge up over main European airlines by being the first to serve Pakistan from Europe.

By connecting people through Reykjavik, WOW Air can compete with existing options and provide a better price, which will convince more customers to fly their airline to Pakistan, therefore getting them more business.

Passengers in the United States and Canada will benefit, because WOW Air serves more destinations in both countries than their competitors in the North America-Pakistan market.

WOW Air would connect Baltimore, Boston, Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, Newark, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Saint Louis, and Toronto with Islamabad via Reykjavik.

Pakistan is ready for European airlines service. Pakistanis abroad are ready to pay for a better option from North America to Pakistan.
