The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the Hungarian government to acquire a cargo aircraft in order to have supplies reach Hungary in a timely fashion. The plane will be operated by WizzAir, which has a partnership with the Hungarian government. Instead of adding the cargo-plane to the military, the government wanted the plane to be operated by an airline as it makes access to other countries easier.

The aircraft involved is A330-200F c/n 1578 and it was previously operated by Qatar Airways as A7-AFF. It is currently being prepared for delivery at Doha. It is unknown when the plane will be delivered and in what livery.
