Wizz Air, one of the largest Central and Eastern European low cost airlines, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to buy 50 more A320s.

 This will take the airline's total orders up to 132 aircraft. All Wizz Air aircraft will be configured in a single-class layout, seating up to 180 passengers. No choice of engine has been made yet.

The new A320 order will allow Wizz Air to reinforce and expand its extensive network established at 11 operating bases, in Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine and Czech Republic. It will also allow the airline to add new destinations to its 130 existing routes.

 Wizz Air already operates a young Airbus fleet of 24 A320s.

Jzsef Vradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air, said, The new order is consistent with our growth plan and underpins our aspiration to become the airline of choice in Central and Eastern Europe. The aircraft economics of the Airbus A320 is instrumental for us to deliver the business at the lowest possible cost in order to make our low fares accessible to an ever increasing customer base. This new commitment also reflects on the robust nature of our business, even in a challenging market environment.
