LONDON – Wizz Air UK has today announced that it will launch two new routes from London Luton Airport ahead of a busy Winter 2022 season.

|London Luton – Lodz||13 December 2022||Tuesday, Saturday|
Commenting on the announcement was Marion Geoffroy, the Managing Director of Wizz Air UK:
“Wizz Air is constantly striving to expand its route network and offer new destinations in Europe and beyond. We are pleased to announce the launch of two routes from London Luton Airport to two brand new Wizz Air stations in Poland.”
“Our continued growth at Luton reaffirms our commitment to offering passengers ultra-low fares to a variety of exciting destinations. We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard to experience our high-quality service and young and efficient aircraft.”
Continued Route Expansion = Continued Fleet Expansion…
Such continued route expansion doesn’t come as a surprise, especially after Wizz Air’s latest announcement earlier this month.
Hungarian low-cost giant Wizz Air has exercised the rights to purchase another 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft, as stated in a 15th of September press release.
Bringing the total number of ordered aircraft to 482 aircraft. Wizz Air buys another 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft. This is a huge milestone for both the company and the manufacturer indeed.
Wizz Air confirms that the purchase rights were already a part of a previous agreement with Airbus, which was subject due to the various confirmation of terms and conditions.
Joszef Varadi, the airline’s CEO, looked back at the purchase rights which was made when the company made a huge announcement for an order for 75 A321neos and 25 A321XLR at the 2021 Dubai Air Show in November.
In addition, to the impressive order, Wizz Air is also entitled to order an extra nineteen A321neos, but this decision will be taken at a later stage depending on certain conditions.
The latest batch of the huge NEO order will be slated for 2028 and 2029 delivery. Although, Wizz Air does not clearly specify the exact delivery dates, and is yet to be confirmed by the European aircraft manufacturer, Airbus.
With the carrier performing well in Abu Dhabi as well, things do seem to be on the up in terms of expansion both in Europe and within the Middle East as well.
It remains clear that Wizz Air is going full steam ahead with route expansion as well as overall aircraft expansion as well.
With the A321XLRs also on order, the possibilities will become endless for the carrier.
All eyes are going to be on the carrier to see what other plans they have for the future in the long term, as well as for the Winter 2022/23 season in the short term.
Despite all of the pressure that CEO Jozsef Varadi has been receiving from shareholders over bonus pay, it’s clear that he isn’t being distracted by this and is pushing ahead to secure that bonus.
