Low-cost airline Wizz Air, which specialises in great value flights to Central and Eastern Europe, has signed a new deal that will see it purchase 50 A320s.

Delivery of the new planes will take the airline's quota to 132 aircraft, and will enable it to reinforce its operations by adding to its 130 routes.

Jozsef Varadi, CEO of Wizz Air, said: "The new order is consistent with our growth plan and underpins our aspiration to become the airline of choice in Central and Eastern Europe. The aircraft economics of the Airbus A320 is instrumental for us to deliver the business at the lowest possible cost in order to make our low fares accessible to an ever-increasing customer base. This new commitment also reflects on the robust nature of our business, even in a challenging market environment."

John Leahy, COO at Airbus, was equally delighted with the deal: "In only five years, Wizz Air, supported by lead investor Indigo partners, has developed into a formidable success story, and we are delighted they did it with our Airbus aircraft. The A320 is undoubtedly the world's favourite single-aisle aircraft, offering superb economics and high passenger appeal. It is also the most eco-efficient aircraft of its category. This milestone order is yet another demonstration of the market superiority of the A320."
