MIAMI (November 8, 2017) – 777 Partners, a US based investment firm, announced today 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 1948. It was once the world’s largest independent charter airline, and served the US military and other clients with great distinction for many years.

Today, we are proud to begin preparations to launch scheduled operations from the US to Asia and Latin America. We will be partnering with low cost, short haul carriers in the US and in the regions we serve to provide connecting traffic to and from our initial planned gateways. We plan to announce our new brand look and feel within the next few weeks, under the direction of our Founding CMO, Freddie Laker.”

Managing Partner of 777 Partners, Josh Wander, said “777 Partners is humbled by the opportunity to participate in the relaunch of World, a seminal brand in the history of US commercial aviation. We are determined to pay proper homage to World’s rich heritage by delivering a transformative flying experience rooted in safety, technology and service, to the large segment of the traveling public historically priced out of international travel.”

Kinda like the dozen or so other airlines that have tried to fly, yet never fly a day in their life. This list is extensive.

I’ll believe when they fly, but until then they have a hell of a long ass ways to go. Lol

Whatever happened to "Family Airways" that was supposed to fly 747's in an all coach LCC configuration from coast to coast for "families"?

I do miss Hooter Airways though... I never got the opportunity to fly them, but even Hooters learned that it takes more assets to make an airline go long term than one usually wants to commit.

I would have bought a ticket when the kids were little... assuming there was a playground in the upper cabin.

The original World tried the trans-Atlantic LCC thing in 1979. BWI-LGW I believe. With DC10's. UAL squashed it within a year and they returned to their bread-and-butter -- ACMI.
