Wizz Air Holdings has firmed up seventy-five A321-200N options as it seeks to both grow its fleet and lower its fuel consumption.

"On 14 September 2022, [Wizz Air] gave notice to Airbus to exercise Purchase Rights in relation to 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft. Delivery dates of the Purchase Option Aircraft are subject to agreement between Wizz Air and Airbus and will be subject to the approval of Wizz Air shareholders as a Class 1 transaction under the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules," the carrier said in a stock market filing.

The options were secured as a part of its 2021 order for seventy-five A321-200Ns and twenty-seven A321-200NY(XLR)s, Wizz Air's share of an order for 255 aircraft placed by the LCC's investor Indigo Partners.

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows its Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) subsidiary currently operates fifty A320-200s, six A320-200Ns, thirty-five A321-200s, fifty-three A321-200NX, and a single A330-200F (operated on behalf of the Hungarian government).
