Two Wizz Air Airbus A320s collided with each other on the ground in Suceava, Romania, today, causing delays for both flights.
W64692, which was due to operate from Suceava, Romania, to Dortmund, collided with HA-LWZ, which had night stopped in the Romanian airport following its arrival from London Luton Airport.
Wizz Air flight W64692 was due to be operated by 9H-WBV, which belongs to the carrier’s Maltese subsidiary.
The Aftermath of the Suceava Collision…
The video and photo footage shows the extensive damage made when the two Wizz Air Airbus A320s collided.
9H-WBV’s sharklets collided with HA-LWZ’s right horizontal stabilizer, with both pieces of both aircraft damaged.
It is unclear how long it will take for both of these aircraft to become airworthy again, with no future flights booked thus far, as per RadarBox.com.
9H-WBV started out life with the Hungarian subsidiary of Wizz Air as HA-LYC following delivery in May 2014.
The aircraft was only just transferred over to the Maltese subsidiary of the carrier last month, with the jet doing some operations around Suceava, Romania recently.
HA-LWZ was also delivered in May 2014 and has remained with the carrier ever since.
This remains a developing story. AviationSource will approach Wizz Air for comment on the incident in Suceava, Romania.
