Wizz Air firms-up Order For 110 Airbus A321neo Aircraft
Wizz Air, the largest low cost carrier serving Eastern and Central Europe, has firmed-up a commitment signed in June at Le Bourget International Paris airshow for 110 A321neo aircraft.
The agreement is the largest single order for the popular A321neo ever. The deal pushes firm NEO orders above 4,300 aircraft. This order includes the latest A321neo Airbus Cabin Flex configuration with 239 seats in 18 inch comfort standard.
Currently Wizz Air operates 63 A320 Family aircraft on one of Central and Eastern Europe’s most extensive networks with over 380 routes from 22 bases.
“This order will help us to build on our strong market position in Central and Eastern Europe. It also provides significant flexibility to match our fleet to our growth requirements,” said József Váradi, Wizz Air Chief Executive Officer.
“We are extremely happy Wizz Air has confirmed its confidence in our A320 Family. The A320neo Family which includes the A321neo deliver unbeatable productivity and fuel efficiency allowing Wizz Air to expand its network and services, ’’ said John Leahy, Airbus Chief Operating Officer.
The A320neo Family aircraft offers the lowest operating costs of any single aisle aircraft delivering 15 per cent fuel burn reduction at entry into service, and 20 per cent by 2020, achieved through cabin innovations, latest engine technologies, and overall efficiency improvements.
