Wizz Air has taken a delivery of its first new Airbus A320neo aircraft under the HA-LJA registration.
This is the airline’s 122 aircraft in the operator’s all-Airbus fleet. The Airbus A320neo, the first of its type in the Wizz fleet, incorporates the latest technologies in aviation and offers significant environmental benefits, with nearly a 50% reduction in noise footprint, a 20% reduction in fuel consumption and a nearly 50% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions compared to previous generation aircraft. By accepting this next aircraft equipped with ultra-modern and efficient Pratt & Whitney GTF engines, Wizz strengthens its position as one of the world’s greenest airlines.
József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air said: “We are delighted to add another ultra- modern aircraft type to our ever-growing fleet. This new aircraft is a true symbol of our ULCC business model by delivering significant cost advantages as well as further lowering Wizz Air’s emissions. Our state-of-the-art fleet, now including the first Airbus A320neo aircraft, as well as our enhanced protective measures will ensure the best possible sanitary conditions for travellers. Wizz Air is the lowest cost producer in Europe operating the youngest and economically most efficient fleet of aircraft with the lowest environmental footprint.”
