Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air on Monday said it negotiated the purchase of 75 new A321neo aircraft from Airbus. Wizz Air will take delivery of most of the more fuel efficient aircraft in 2028-2029.
“The combination of Wizz Air’s ultra-low cost operation and the market-leading Airbus A321neo aircraft together create a strong platform for Wizz Air’s future growth in the coming decade as we further strengthen our position as one of the world’s most sustainable airlines,” CEO József Váradi said. “We remain on track to become a 500 aircraft airline group by the end of the decade while delivering our commitment to reduce our already industry-leading CO2 emissions by 25% by 2030,” he added. Wizz Air has a fleet of 165 Airbus aircraft at present. They are one of the youngest short-haul fleets in the world.
