LONDON May 21 Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz
Air is set to unveil plans for a London market debt on Thursday,
a source familiar with the matter said, reviving listing plans
for central and eastern Europe's largest budget airline.
Barclays, Citigroup and JP Morgan
will lead the listing of Wizz, the source said on Wednesday.
Reuters reported last summer that the three banks had been
appointed but the share listing never occurred.
Wizz Air launched its first flight in 2004 and now has 16
operating bases in cities from Warsaw to Bucharest, offering
more than 300 routes.
The airline had sales of 766 million euros ($1.1 billion) in
2012. Rival budget airlines easyJet and Ryanair
are already listed on the London and Irish stock exchanges
Wizz Air was not immediately available for comment.
