Low-cost carrier Wizz Air has added a new aircraft to its fleet at London Luton Airport.
The Airbus A321neo takes the airline’s total number of aircraft at London Luton to 12. The aircraft will take Wizz Air’s capacity to more than 12 millions seats per year from London.
The update signals growth for the airline, which expects to create 40 new jobs. As a result, Wizz Air will be recruiting for new cabin and flight crew, bringing the number of staff in the UK to around 800.
With flights commencing in winter 2023/2024, passengers can look forward to greater accessibility to six destinations thanks to increased frequency across the following routes:
Hurghada – 4 weekly flights
Sharm el Sheikh – 3 weekly flights
Tirana – 35 weekly flights
Prague – 12 weekly flights
Reykjavik – 7 weekly flights
Amman – 5 weekly flights
Marion Geoffroy, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said: “The addition of a new aircraft marks a significant investment for the UK, and we’re pleased to solidify our market-leading position at London Luton. Sustainability is a priority for us, so we are only investing in the latest technology aircraft to help meet our environmental commitments. We are seeing increased demand for more flights to destinations across Europe. With this new aircraft increasing our capacity at Luton, we are now providing more seats than ever for passengers to travel to and from London.”
