Iceland’s only low-cost airline WOW has inked an agreement with Air Lufthansa Technik over a three-year component support agreement for the carrier’s new fleet of three Trent 700-powered Airbus A330 aircraft. The contract began on 1 August 2016.
WOW started using its A330-300 aircraft this summer on flights between Keflavík International Airport and Los Angeles and San Francisco.
The Total Component Support (TCS) contract covers the overhaul of line replaceable units (LRU), pooling and home base lease. Lufthansa Technik’s facilities in Frankfurt and Hamburg as well as its US-based warehouses will provide the support.
“This agreement will provide WOW air with the support needed while launching our U.S./Europe A330 widebody network, by minimizing technical delays and optimizing dispatch reliability,” said Aegir Thorberg Jonsson, director technical operation of WOW air.
“We are very proud to support WOW air right from the beginning of its long-haul operations,” said Georgios Ouzounidis, vice president sales Europe at Lufthansa Technik.
WOW air has a fleet of Airbus A320, A321 and A330-300s.
