- 8 June 2013 - Wizz Air Flight 3141, an Airbus A320-232 registered HA-LWM performing a flight from Bucharest Henri Coanda Airport, Romania to Rome Ciampino, Italy, made an emergency landing on Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport when the aircraft was unable to lower the landing gear. While the aircraft should have landed at Rome Ciampino the crew diverted to Fiumicino because of the longer runway. The landing was performed with one of the main undercarriage on a foam bed laid down by the firefighters. The landing was successful with no injuries although initially there were reports of injuries which were denied by Wizz Air and the airport. The aircraft was evacuated using slides. The aircraft returned to service on 28 August 2013.
