A Wizz Air Airbus A321-200 performing flight from Bucharest Otopeni (Romania) to Billund (Denmark), was accelerating for takeoff from Otopeni’s runway when the crew rejected takeoff at low speed (about 45 knots over ground) due to a right hand engine failure.

The aircraft slowed safely, vacated the runway and stopped on the adjacent taxiway where emergency services inspected the aircraft.

The runway was closed for about 15 minutes as result.

Passengers reported the right hand engine emitted sparks.
