Director dealings: Wizz Air director ups stake

(Sharecast News) - Wizz Air non-executive director Barry Eccleston purchased 2,500 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed low-cost carrier on Friday.
Eccleston, the former chief executive of Airbus Americas, acquired the shares at an average price of 2,927.14p, for a total value of £73,178.57.

Wizz Air cut its full-year profit forecasts on Wednesday, blaming "unprecedented" disruptions, higher fuel prices, air traffic control strikes and congested airports.

The company said full-year net profit would now come in between €270m-€300m compared to a previous forecast of €310m - €340m. Higher fuel costs were expected to hit results by around €80m.

On the back of the rising fuel price in the first half the company trimmed second half capacity growth to 14% from 18%. It added that second half yields were "responding well" and tracking 7% higher than last year with load factors also higher.

As of 1645 GMT, Wizz shares had moved ahead 1.79% to 2,952p.
