Icelandic low-cost carrier WOW Air has detailed plans to add seven more aircraft, growing its all-Airbus fleet from 17 to 24 by end of 2018.

WOW Air said the additional aircraft include four A330-900neos on 12-year lease from CIT Aerospace International, plus two A321ceos-one purchased directly from Airbus and the other leased from Air Lease Corp. (ALC).

The A330-900neos will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines and configured with 365 seats in a single-class layout.

"This addition will help us grow even more and to fly greater lengths than before. A bigger and younger fleet will, without a doubt, benefit us in the ever-growing, competitive aviation market," WOW Air CEO Skuli Mogensen said.

From spring 2017, WOW Air serves 32 destinations across Europe, North America and Canada-including London, Edinburgh, Bristol, Washington DC, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Montreal, Toronto and New York.

WOW Air was created in November 2011 and operates A320s, A321s and A330s.
