Ticker:  WIZZ

 

Geneva, 3 March 2020: Wizz Air Holdings Plc ("Wizz Air"), the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announces passenger and CO2 emission statistics for February 2020.

 

In February 2020, Wizz Air continued to grow its network and improve its customer offering as follows:

 

·    Route network expansion with the announcement of three new routes: Armenia (1x) and Poland (2x). 

·      Fleet expansion with the delivery of a brand new A321neo game-changer aircraft, taking the fleet to 121 aircraft. The Airbus A321neo is powered by Pratt & Whitney GTF engines, features the widest single-aisle cabin with 239 seats in a single class configuration and offers Wizz Air maximum flexibility, fuel efficiency and lowest possible operating costs.

·      Wizz Air continuously operates at the lowest CO2 emissions per passenger/km amongst all competitor airlines. At 56.9 grams, CO2 emissions in grams per passenger/km for the month of February were largely stable despite the impact of the spread of coronavirus which prompted some capacity reduction and slightly lower load factors.
