“We have established a solid relationship with CDB Leasing, who have been supporting our growth, and now they are financing our first two A321 type of aircraft,” Wizz Air CEO József Váradi said.
Airbus A321, which has a longer fuselage than A320, offers a bigger capacity to transport 230 passenger, instead if 180. Therefore, Wizz Air expects to offer better services at lower prices, the announcement says.
The first A321ceo is scheduled to arrive in November and the second in December, as part of a deal the airline recently signed with Airbus.
