AJW Group has today announced the addition of the new generation A320neo and the A321neo aircraft to its power-by-the-hour (PBH) contract with the Icelandic low-cost carrier WOW air. The expansion of the WOW air contract means that AJW Group now supports both types of A320neo family aircraft, and the next generation PW1100G and CFM LEAP-1A engines that power them.

WOW air is the first A321neo operator in Europe. With the addition of these new aircraft and engine types to their growing PBH portfolio, AJW Group becomes the first company of its kind to support the A321neo in Europe. As part of the contract extension, AJW Group also secured a further three of WOW air’s A321 aircraft to their PBH portfolio.

Christopher Whiteside, President and CEO of AJW Group, said: “The addition of the A321neo to our rapidly growing fleet of managed aircraft demonstrates AJW Groups’ ability to remain at the forefront of the industry by successfully supporting next generation aircraft and engine types. “WOW air’s decision to add their next generation aircraft and engines marks the latest phase in a longstanding partnership which stretches back to their launch, and has supported their impressive growth since that time.” Már Þórarinsson, Technical Director Operations, at WOW air, said: “AJW has long supported WOW air with their expertise and efficiency, and the decision to extend our existing contract with them is testament to that. We’re looking forward to having them on board for this next phase of our development.”

WOW air’s A320neo family incorporates the very latest technologies in the aviation industry, including new generation engines and Sharklets, which together deliver at least 15 percent fuel savings at delivery and 20 percent by 2020.
