With the delivery of a new Airbus A321neo, discount airline Wizz Air's fleet has reached 170 planes, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The new plane is set to enter service at Catania International Airport in Italy.
The Airbus A321neo uses the latest aviation technologies and offers significant environmental benefits, with a noise footprint reduced by almost 50%, fuel consumption reduced by 20% and nitrogen oxide emissions reduced by 50%.
The average age of the airline's fleet now stands at 4.6 years, one of the youngest in the world, and in addition, Wizz Air is also the largest A321neo operator in Europe.
According to the press release, Wizz Air is looking to lower its carbon footprint per passenger kilometer by 25% by 2030. To this end, the airline ordered a further 370 modern Airbus aircraft, a world first.
Wizz Air chief development officer Owain Jones notes, “We are currently the largest operator of A321neo aircraft in Europe. Our significant outstanding order book will power both growth and fast fleet renewal, maintaining Wizz Air’s average fleet age as one of the youngest of any major airline. As Wizz Air continues to take new aircraft deliveries, more passengers than ever before will be able to travel across our network to some of the most exciting destinations."
