The new Airbus planes have arrived in Bedfordshire and flights have begun to the new destinations Bratislava in Slovakia and Bari, in southern Italy.
Already the sixth largest airline operating in the UK, the new Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 aircraft joining the London Luton fleet reflect Wizz Air’s continued investment into its UK operations.
Wizz Air now has three aircraft based at London Luton, with a further five to be deployed by June, increasing the number of direct local jobs to over 300.
The airline’s chief corporate officer Owain Jones said: “This is an exciting time for Wizz Air and its customers as we continue to expand our network across Europe. The arrival of two brand new aircraft at London Luton reflects our commitment to our UK operations as we continue on our mission to deliver the lowest fares to some of the most exciting destinations Europe has to offer.”
