Wizz Air has placed a firm order for an additional 75 A321neo family aircraft. The new order brings Wizz Air’s total order of the A321neo family aircraft to 434, with the airline’s A320 family order at 565 aircraft.
Wizz Air’s fleet consists exclusively of Airbus aircraft, currently operating a fleet of more than 180 A320 family aircraft.
“With today’s announcement, Wizz Air further reinforces its position as the largest A321neo family operator in Europe and the Middle East,” said József Váradi, CEO of Wizz Air. “More than half our fleet has already been converted to cutting-edge neo technology. The A321neo’s unparalleled economic efficiency and remarkably low carbon footprint underpin our commitment to provide affordable and sustainable travel options for our customers.
“We have enjoyed a longstanding strategic partnership with Airbus,” Váradi continued, “and are steadfast in our commitment to this exceptional technology with one of the largest outstanding order books in the world of more than 350 neo aircraft.”
Christian Scherer, Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International, Airbus, added: “Thanks to József’s stewardship, Wizz Air has steadily grown to become a formidable airline in the European skies and a great partner to Airbus. The investment in the A321neo is a solid foundation in Wizz Air’s continued expansion strategy.
“We thank József and everyone at Wizz Air for their unwavering confidence in our partnership and products,” he said.
