The Joint Bookrunners were Barclays, BNP Paribas, Citigroup and J.P. Morgan.

József Váradi, Wizz Air Group Chief Executive Officer commented:We are pleased to announce our second bond offering at even more attractive pricing levels compared to our debut offering last year.

“The proceeds will further support Wizz Air as it scales-up to become an even stronger low-cost player in the coming years.”
