Wizz Air celebrates the arrival of Pratt & Whitney’s 1000th GTF-powered Airbus A320 family aircraft

Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing and most sustainable airline*, today celebrates the arrival of a brand new, GTF-powered Airbus A320neo aircraft to its fleet of 153 aircraft. This is the 1000th A320neo powered by GTF engines to be delivered by Pratt & Whitney.

Wizz Air has selected Pratt & Whitney’s ultra-modern and efficient GTF engines to power 276 of its A320neo family aircraft, of which 54 have so far been delivered. The airline also uses Pratt & Whitney’s V2500® engines for its fleet of 105 A320ceo family aircraft.

The Pratt & Whitney GTF engine strengthens Wizz Air’s position as one of the world’s most sustainable airlines, by reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions for the Airbus A320neo family by 16%, regulated emissions by 50% and noise footprint by 75%. Wizz Air is committed to more than tripling the size of its fleet, and has the largest order book of over 378 state-of-the-art Airbus A320 family aircraft, which will enable the airline to further reduce its environmental footprint by 25% for every passenger until 2030.
