Norwegian Air and Virgin Atlantic Airways are among several airlines that are offering passengers scheduled to fly on the now-shuttered Wow Air so-called “rescue” fares.

Wow Air ceased all operations overnight and cancelled all flights Thursday morning.

Norwegian Air is offering a 25% discount on coach fares through April 8. Flights must be booked via the airline’s call center and not online. Proof of a Wow ticket is required.

Virgin Atlantic said it is offering “special rescue fares” to Wow passengers although it did not specify how much these tickets would cost. Similar to Norwegian, Virgin Atlantic flights must be booked via the airline’s call center and proof of a Wow ticket is required. Flights must be from the same originating point and to the same destination as the Wow ticket.

Meanwhile, Icelandair, which had announced rescue fares shortly after Wow’s announcement, is offering $60 fares to or from Europe, $100 fares to or from North America, and $160 fares for travel between Europe and North America via Iceland.

Other airlines offering rescue fares include EasyJet, Wizz Air, and Aer Lingus.
