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.
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.”
