Icelandic LCC WOW air has purchased two new Airbus A321 aircraft on a finance lease for use on its transatlantic routes launching this spring to Boston and Washington DC.
“We’re very proud to be adding these new A321 aircraft to our growing fleet of aircraft”, said WOW air founder and CEO Skúli Mogensen.
“Their low fuel consumption and state of the art Cabin in a 200 seat configuration will offer our passengers a very comfortable journey at unbeatable prices. We are now ready to continue our rapid growth as the first true low cost carrier offering flights across the Atlantic via Iceland.”
The aircraft will be delivered to WOW air in company livery in mid-March with a single-class 200-seat configuration. They will enter into service on the airline’s new routes between Reykjavik and the United States, with flights to Boston beginning on 27 March and to Washington DC on 8 May.
