“We are delighted to have received our first Airbus A321neo aircraft with Recaro seats. Not only are these seats comfortable and durable, but due to their lightweight design they support Wizz Air’s goal to reduce its emissions by 25% withing the decade,” Michael Delehant, Executive Vice President and Group Chief Operations Officer at Wizz Air. “We are confident that our passengers will also like the new ergonomic design and fine materials used for the seats.”
