PARIS – On Wednesday, the Icelandic low-cost airline, WOW Air, became the first airline in Europe to take delivery of the Airbus A321neo. The airline welcomed the new A321neo (TF-SKY: C/ 7694) during a ceremony held at the Paris Air Show.

The airplane TF-SKY is leased from Air Lease Corporation (ALC) and is the 17th aircraft in the WOW Air fleet. Of these aircraft from the All-Airbus operator, three are A320s, 11 are A321s, and three are A330-300s.

WOW’s A321neo will seat 218 in an all-economy configuration.


The aggressive Reykjavik-based carrier will use the A321neo on transatlantic flights. In North America, WOW Air operates to Baltimore, Boston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, Newark, San Francisco, and Toronto.

The addition of the A321 will allow WOW to continue to grow their route network. In July, the airline will expand its network by launching service to Chicago on the 13th and Pittsburgh 16th.

Last month, WOW Air took delivery of their first A320neo. The carrier is expected to take delivery of the six additional jets over an 18-month period starting mid-2017, including four A330-900s, leased from CIT Aerospace.
