Wizz Air has been growing since it first started in 2003. That includes both how many destinations it serves and the planes it operates. Here’s what you need to know.
Wizz Air Planes
At this time, there are 183 planes in Wizz Air’s fleet, including its subsidiary airlines. Together, they serve 193 destinations across Europe, North Africa, and South Asia. All of these are offered at an affordable cost because all add-ons cost passengers a fee.
Wizz Air uses several different types of planes, including Airbus A320-200, Airbus 320neo, Airbus A321-200, and Airbus 321neo. The Airbus A321XLR is expected to join the fleet in 2024. These planes carry between 180 and 239 passengers, depending on the aircraft.
Wizz Air also has a cargo fleet that uses the Airbus A330-200F, but there’s only one plane currently in service. Wizz Air, Wizz Air Malta, and Wizz Air UK are all part of Wizz Air Holdings plc, so all planes are part of the same family, regardless of their carrier of origin.
Wizz Air Expansion
Wizz Air has no plans of slowing down. On the contrary, they plan to operate more than 200 planes in the short term and up to 500 as a long-term goal. The more planes they operate, the more passengers they can serve and market share they can gain. Their low prices are a competitive advantage that will help them expand their fleet.
Currently, Wizz Air has 183 planes, but they plan to expand operations up to 500 aircraft. This will help increase their footprint and serve more guests.
