Wizz Air commits to buy 50 Airbus A320s
Wizz Air, the largest Central and Eastern European low cost - low fare airline, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding to buy 50 more A320s. This will take their total orders up to 132 aircraft.
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. This new large A320 order will enable Wizz Air to reinforce its strong position in the region. The rapidly expanding Central and Eastern Europe's low-cost low fare airline already operates a young and eco-efficient Airbus fleet of 24 A320s.
"In only five years, Wizz Air supported by lead investor Indigo Partners has developed into a formidable success story, and we are delighted they did it with our Airbus aircraft. The A320 is undoubtedly the world's favourite single-aisle aircraft, offering superb economics and high passenger appeal. It is also the most eco-efficient aircraft of it category" said Airbus President and CEO Tom Enders. "This milestone commitment is yet another demonstration of the market superiority of the A320."
