Wizz Air places largest seat order in its history and the largest order to be awarded ever to Geven for the new generation ESSENZA Economy Class Seat for the new A321/A320 NEO Fleet (110 plus aircraft)

The largest low-cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe and one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines, Wizz Air, has selected the new Geven ESSENZA single aisle Economy Class seat model to equip its new 110 A321 NEO fleet for its incredible living space, comfort, fresh Italian design and reduced weight characteristics.

The large 110 A/C plus seating order comes as a renewed confirmation of trust and faith in Geven, who have been supplying seats to Wizz Air since their first Airbus narrow body asset acquisitions in 2007.

The Geven ESSENZA seat shall be installed in Wizz Air A321/A320 NEO cabins with a configuration of 239 passengers on the A321 NEO and 186 passengers on the A320 NEO, in a single economy class layout.

ESSENZA, (which in Italian means “essence”), Geven’s latest born – has indeed all the essentials! Conceived in two main versions, one basic and pre-reclined, for the most high density configurations; and one with up to 6” of recline, for the longer haul and mixed class cabins and with integration capability of all the latest IFE systems, Essenza comes with a wide range of options and is available in a convertible version as well.

Geven’s remarkably light weight Essenza, prides itself with its comfortable and harmonized 18.3” bay width dimensions, exceptional living space geometry, fresh and trendy design and is a qualitative leap forward in the seating industry of today.

ESSENZA’s main added values are represented by: a new primary structure designed to maximize shin and knee clearance and to optimize the weight performances; introduction of light weight cushion, of which the bottom one is structural, combined with an exquisitely ergonomic seat geometry such as to guarantee high comfort levels, minimum weight, with high durability and reliability; a special ultra slim backrest contour which significantly increases the knee clearance at even the tightest pitch.

Wizz Air’s modern take and young appeal, couple beautifully with the new Essenza’s fresh Italian design

WIZZ and Geven have had a strong partnership for more than a decade, both companies having an amazing growth over the last years. Geven is very proud of having been Wizz Air’s partner for such a long a time!”
