Wizz Air, the largest low-cost, low-fare airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced the launch of its new Wizz Discount Club, specifically designed for loyal customers who travel as a group or buy more than one Wizz Air ticket per year. The discount club membership, available on wizzair.com, guarantees a discount of ₤8.5 on all one-way flights on Wizz Air fares over ₤12.50 booked anytime during the one year membership period. Club members and up to 9 family members or friends travelling in the same party can now achieve even more savings by being loyal and traveling on Wizz Air’s low fares more often.
The launch of the Wizz Discount Club comes as an expected development after Wizz Air announced earlier in 2012 it would launch several family friendly services and is an upgrade of the former “Exclusive Club” with which the airline assessed consumer preferences regarding discount offers. Up to 20% of Wizz Air passengers are business travelers who chose extra legroom, reserved front seats and flexible date bookings and by introducing the Wizz Discount Club the airline expects to further increase its appeal to families traveling on a budget.
Membership in the Wizz Discount Club is valid for one year for a one-time fee of ₤24.99 and its benefits are available for up to 9 people in the same booking. Wizz Air has also introduced, this week, an early web check in facility which offers passengers the opportunity to check in online on wizzair.com up to two weeks before the scheduled departure time.
Daniel de Carvalho, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: “Wizz Air now carries over 1 million passengers every month and many of these passengers travel as a group of families or friends. We are therefore pleased to introduce our new Wizz Discount Club which offers a guaranteed discount on all bookings with fares over ₤12.50. This means that a family of five, travelling together, can now easily save ₤42.50 on a one-way flight on top of Wizz Air’s already very low fares. Following suggestions of our customers we have also announced to extend the online check in period to 14 days before the travel date, which brings more comfort to those who wish to check in online and do so from their homes for both outbound and inbound flights. We expect these two new improvements and our consumer friendly offer to be very popular among our customers and we celebrate the new Wizz Discount Club by launching one-way fares for sale from just ₤14.99 on wizzair.com.”
