With a new order, low cost airline in Europe raised its total order with Airbus to 565 aircraft of the A320 family

Ultra low cost airline, Wizz Air is assembling a mega fleet of planes. The Hungary-based carrier confirmed on 2 August a firm order with Airbus to acquire a further 75 A321neo family jets.

With this new order, the airline brings its total order for A321 models to 432 aircraft. Also adding the jets of the A320 option, Wizz Air adds 565 aircraft acquired with Airbus – of which 183 aircraft are already in service with Wizz Air, including with its subsidiaries based in Malta, United Kingdom and Abu Dhabi.

“With today’s announcement, Wizz Air further reinforces its position as the largest A321neo Family operator in Europe and the Middle East. More than half our fleet has already been converted to cutting-edge neo technology”, said József Váradi, CEO of Wizz Air.

In addition to the conventional A321neo model, Wizz Air also has 47 orders for the A321XLR ultra-long range version, whose market debut is expected in 2025.

“Thanks to József’s stewardship, Wizz Air has steadily grown to become a formidable airline in the European skies and a great partner to Airbus. The investment in the A321neo is a solid foundation in Wizz Air’s continued expansion strategy. We thank József and everyone at Wizz Air for their unwavering confidence in our partnership and our products,” salutes Christian Scherer, Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International.

The aircraft will be delivered between 2028 and 2029, but Wizz Air has not yet announced which engine will be chosen between the CFM Leap-1A and the Pratt & Whitney GTF.
