The first Airbus A330neo for low-cost airline WOW air has been rolled out of the paint shop in Toulouse. The Icelandic airline will take delivery of the aircraft on lease from Avolon later in 2018, becoming the third operator of the type world-wide. WOW air is an all Airbus operator with a fleet of 18 aircraft (15 A320 Family and three A330s). The Airbus fleet will increase to 24 aircraft by the end of 2018.
WOW air was founded in November 2011 and currently serves 36 destinations across Europe, North America, and Asia. It selected the A330neo for its low operating costs and excellent fuel efficiency. The aircraft will feature a twin-class cabin layout with 42 premium economy seats and 323 economy seats.
