Wizz Air reaches 30 million passenger milestone

Wizz Air has reported a new passenger record, with more than 30 million passengers carried in the past rolling 12 month-period.

The same time, the low-cost carrier has seen its operations across Europe increase by 24 per cent compared to the previous year.

As part of the biggest operational ramp-up in Wizz Air’s history, which started in early March, the carrier is adding 700 weekly flights in total and will see the delivery of 21 Airbus aircraft across its European bases in just 17 weeks.

Only eight weeks in, Wizz Air has already launched 34 new low-fare routes across its European network and inaugurated three new destinations bringing an even wider range of destinations at genuinely low prices: Athens in Greece, Kharkiv in Ukraine and the Austrian capital, Vienna.

The airline continues to invest and support the development of the communities it serves by stimulating the market and creating new jobs with eight newly deployed Airbus aircraft across four of its bases in the United Kingdom, Poland and Hungary.
