Iceland’s WOW air gets new jet today

Icelandic low-cost airline WOW air is taking delivery of the twelfth aircraft in its fleet today, a brand-new Airbus A321 aircraft, registered TF-JOY.

The aircraft is equipped with extra fuel tanks for greater operating range, and fewer seats (220) and more legroom than the configuration used by other low-cost airlines, a press release from the airline states.

“It is a pleasure to offer our passengers the very newest aircraft in Iceland,” says CEO of WOW Skúli Mogensen. “The new A321 aircraft are quiet, economical and environmentally friendly.”

The new plane is flying direct from the Airbus factory in Hamburg, Germany, today. It has been playfully registered TF-JOY, in the WOW air tradition of using the last three latters of their aircraft’s code to express modern family values and feelings.
