Wizz Air is exploring the possible introduction of Airbus A321s to its all-A320 fleet, chief executive József Váradi says.

"The A321 is something we are considering," he confirms. "It wouldn't give a lot of [extra] range, but it would give more seat capacity."

The low-cost carrier operates a fleet of 40 A320s, according to Flightglobal's Ascend Online database, with orders for a further 71 units.

Váradi says that while he would consider introducing the A321 on high-demand routes, Wizz Air's "unified single-type fleet concept" is not up for review.

"We are committed to the A320 [family]," he insists. "We will not be deploying different types of aircraft to serve different types of markets."
