Wizz Air Ukraine Takes Delivery Of Its First 'Sharklet' Equipped A320

First Ukrainian Carrier Fly An aircraft So-Equipped

Wizz Air Ukraine has taken delivery of an A320 aircraft equipped with "Sharklet" fuel saving wing tip devices, becoming the first Ukrainian carrier to do so. "Sharklets" are newly designed wing-tip devices that Airbus says improve the aircraft’s aerodynamics and can significantly cut the airline’s fuel burn and emissions by four per cent on longer sectors.

"Sharklets" are an option on new-build A320 Family aircraft, and standard on all members of the NEO Family. They offer the flexibility to A320 Family operators of either adding around 100 nautical miles more range or allowing an increased payload capability of up to nearly 1,000 pounds.
 
“We already operate the youngest and most fuel efficient fleet of any Ukrainian airline, and our investment in "Sharklets" will help reduce our fuel consumption even further,” said Akos Bus, Director General of Wizz Air Ukraine.
 
“With high fuel prices and with a four per cent fuel burn reduction, Wizz Air Ukraine’s investment in the "Sharklet" will pay handsome dividends, said John Leahy, Chief Operating Officer, Customers. “We are delighted with Wizz Air Ukraine’s choice to grow their airline with Airbus.”
 
Wizz Air Ukraine is the only low-fare, low-cost airline serving the Ukrainian market and will operate a fleet of 4 Airbus A320 aircraft from 5 airports in Ukraine to 19 destinations in 10 countries by summer 2013.
