Wizz Air orders Airbus

Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has signed a firm contract with Airbus for 20 additional A320s to expand its all-Airbus fleet.


Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has signed a firm contract with Airbus for 20 additional A320s. The airline, with an expanding Central and Eastern hub, has an all-Airbus fleet, having placed an initial order for 12 A320 aircraft a year ago.



All the aircraft will be powered by International Aero Engines’ V2500 and be configured in a single-class layout, seating up to 180 passengers.



Airbus said the new order would facilitate the airline’s robust growth plan in Central and Eastern Europe to meet the increasing demand for air travel in the region in the next years.



Wizz Air is Central & Eastern Europe’s largest low-fare, low-cost airline. It operates flights from Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Croatia, Slovenia and Romania to 40 destinations on 70 routes.
