By 2030, WIZZ plans to operate 500 aircraft as an airline group while further lowering CO2 emissions by 25%.
The most sustainable and rapidly expanding low-cost airline in Europe, Wizz Air, announced that it has notified Airbus that it intends to exercise its purchase rights with regard to 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft.
The 75 additional A321neo aircraft support Wizz Air’s ambitious plan to more than triple the size of its fleet by the end of the decade to become an airline with 500 aircraft, the majority of which are anticipated to be delivered in 2028-29*.
The A321neo aircraft, which incorporates the newest aviation technologies and offers significant environmental benefits with a close to 50% reduction in noise footprint, a 20% reduction in fuel consumption, and a 50% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions, strengthens its position as one of the most sustainable low-cost airlines.
At the moment, Wizz Air operates a fleet of 165 cutting-edge Airbus aircraft. With one of the newest short-haul fleets in the world, Wizz Air provides passengers with an unmatched flying experience while reducing carbon emissions.
The market-leading Airbus A321neo aircraft and the ultra-low-cost operation of Wizz Air, according to Wizz Air CEO József Váradi, “provide a strong basis for Wizz Air’s future growth in the coming decade as we further enhance our position as one of the most sustainable airlines in the world.
We will fulfill our pledge to cut our already industry-leading CO2 emissions by 25% by 2030 while still becoming a 500-aircraft airline group by the end of the decade.
