The first A321neo aircraft for Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, Wizz Air’s newest subsidiary based in the Middle East, was spotted in Hamburg on August 3, 2020, awaiting flight testing before its final destination.

The first out of their planned two A321neos (Registered HA-LVJ) was seen in Hamburg, Germany. The German city hosts an Airbus A320 family Final Assembly Line (FAL)..

Temporary registration number in one of the pictures reads “D-AVVA” on the right side of the aircraft, indicating that this A321neo, a 239-all-economy seater, is due for flight testing before it is cleared for Abu Dhabi.

The aircraft’s tail spots purple Abu Dhabi lettering, further affirming its final destination when it does leave Airbus’ Hamburg FAL.
