Wizz Air to expand fleet with 110 planes

Transport

Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has signed a cooperation agreement to buy 110 Airbus A321neo aircraft, worth $12.5 billion, according to a press release issued today.

The delivery of the aircrafts will begin in 2019, with a portion replacing the company’s current fleet of 61 Airbus A320 aircrafts.

In May, Wizz Air unveiled redesigned aircraft liveries to mark the 11th anniversary of its first flight.

"We have investigated many opportunities, but Airbus gave the best offer considering both cost-efficiency and price, therefore it was a logical decision to continue our long-standing history with the firm when we are expanding our Europe- and world-wide reach," Wizz Air CEO József Váradi said.
