Geneva, 4 October 2019:Further to the Company's announcement on 19 June 2019 of the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Airbus S.A.S. ("Airbus") relating to the proposed purchase of 20 Airbus A321XLR Aircraft (the "Proposed Purchase") (exercised as part of its existing options under the purchase agreement entered into with Airbus in 2015), Wizz Air is pleased to announce that a circular relating to the Proposed Purchase (the "Circular") which includes a notice of a general meeting of shareholders (the "General Meeting") and a form of proxy relating to the General Meeting has been posted to shareholders.
