Wow Air acquires first Airbus A320neo

WOW air has taken delivery of the first A320neo aircraft, via an agreement with Air Lease Corporation (ALC). The new aircraft is the Icelandic airline’s thirteenth in a rapidly expanding, all-Airbus fleet and will be deployed on WOW air’s routes to Europe and North America as of 3rd of May.

In a departure from the airline’s tradition of naming its aircraft after family members (including MOM, DAD, BRO and SIS) the newest member of the fleet will be christened TF-NEO in a nod to it being the first of its kind in the fleet.

“We’re proud to offer a young and technologically advanced fleet that allows us to provide our passengers with a comfortable journey at best possible prices,” said Skúli Mogensen, WOW air Founder and CEO. “It is a welcome addition to our family of aircraft that now operate on 29 international routes across Europe and North America.”

“We are happy that WOW air has taken delivery of its first A320neo which will fit seamlessly in WOW air’s all Airbus fleet. The aircraft offers unbeatable operating costs, latest technologies and significant environmental benefits. WOW air’s passengers will continue to enjoy the unrivalled comfort that only Airbus aircraft offer,” said Fabrice Brégier, Airbus COO and President Commercial Aircraft.
