Wizz Air continues to invest in one of the most sustainable fleets in Europe

As governments and sector leaders gather at the COP26 conference, today marks another major milestone for Wizz Air as it continues to invest in Europe’s most modern and sustainable air fleets, the company said in a statement.

This airline now has an entire fleet of aircraft Airbus A321neo which will fly from the base in Vienna – which once again confirms the advantages of this state-of-the-art fuel-saving technology.

This is the third market in a row in which Wizz Air is moving to a fleet composed exclusively of Airbus A320neo aircraft, after previous technological investments in Italy and Abu Dhabi.

Sustainability is an important business segment

Sustainability has always been an important element of the business model for Wizz Air, which is reflected in the day-to-day operations and planned sustainable growth of this airline. Airbus A320neo aircraft offer unsurpassed fuel efficiency and excellent aerodynamics and are equipped with charklet devices to further reduce the resistance to swirling air on the wings.

These planes generate 43 percent less noise and 50 percent less nitrogen oxide emissions compared to the previous generation of these aircraft.

The average age of the current fleet is 5.1 years, which makes it one of the youngest and most efficient fleets in the world.

Combined with a network that avoids unnecessary connected flights and uses lighter cabin materials, that’s what makes Wizz Air’s business so efficient.

Lowest CO2 emissions

In addition, Wizz Air still has the lowest CO₂ emissions per passenger per kilometer traveled at 57.3 g / km per passenger among all European airlines.

This is further evidence that the company continues to reduce CO₂ emissions and is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its business, making Wizz Air one of the most sustainable airlines in Europe, the statement said.

If every airline in Europe used the same modern and efficient fleet as Wizz Air and operated it the way Wizz Air operates its aircraft, the sector would reduce emissions by 34 percent in record time.

Wizz Air is also focused on promoting a number of other initiatives to address carbon emissions as part of its ongoing commitment to further reduce these emissions by 25 percent by 2030.

Among them are dozens of fuel-saving initiatives, such as the development of models for estimating the weight of empty aircraft without fuel, eliminating unnecessary additional fuel thanks to the optimization of flight planning systems and the introduction of more precise factors for more accurate fuel consumption assessment, as well as the introduction of Electronic Flying Bag hardware.

“Looking to the future, we are pleased that the ATI Fly Zero program shows that the future of zero-emission hydrogen aircraft is in sight and that Airbus believes that hydrogen is the right choice to achieve the goal of launching zero-emission commercial passenger aircraft in the next decade. . “We will continue to invest in the latest aviation technologies, especially hydrogen-powered aircraft, which will provide a long-term solution that will help this sector achieve its goals related to net zero emissions,” the airline said in a statement.
