The new look World Airways

World Airways is the first ultra low-cost, long-haul airline headquartered out of the US, servicing under-penetrated routes between the US and far-off destinations around the world.

Today we’re introducing our updated brand. Our updated logo is a nod to the heritage of the original World Airways, leveraging an evolved version of the original titled globe, but is a unique mark that is inclusive, full of optimism, and celebratory. It doesn’t just celebrate our differences, it brings them together as one.
For us we’re not just flying a plane, we’re flying a flag. We’re going to help make the world a little smaller – for everyone. Let’s connect and help narrow the gaps between our cultures and global communities.

The playing field has been levelled. We’re in this World together.

The return of WorldAirways?

The World could soon be seeing World again!  777 Partners, a US based investment firm, announced this week that it has acquired the intellectual property of World Airways, Inc., the iconic US airline known for its worldwide operational capabilities,  and is planning to re-launch World Airways ("World") as a low cost, long haul airline flying state of the art Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Initial funding for certification and aircraft acquisitions is being provided by 777 Partners. Discussions are underway with Boeing for an initial order for up to ten (10) 787-aircraft.

Ed Wegel, Founding CEO of World commented, "World has a rich and storied history dating back to 1947. It was once the world's largest independent charter airline, and served the US military and other clients with great distinction for many years."
