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.
