wizzair sharkletWizz Air, Europe's leading low-cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe, reveals the latest traffic statistics and reports a new passenger record in the company’s history. More than 30 million passengers were carried in the past rolling 12 month-period, as its operations across Europe were increased with 24% compared to the similar period last year.

As part of the biggest operational ramp-up in Wizz Air’s history, commenced in early March, the carrier is adding in total 700 weekly flights 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.

The rapid expansion of Wizz Air’s operations brings great value flights along with maximum choice for its customers and an easy online booking system, offering the possibility of truly memorable experiences in more than 140 exciting destinations across Europe and beyond.

Wizz Air has been encouraging savvy customers to celebrate its rapid growth by following #WIZZaroundEurope on social media for the chance to win exciting prizes. So far, Wizz Air customers have won over 15 WIZZ vouchers worth more than EUR 8,000, giving lucky winners the opportunity to explore the variety of destinations in the WIZZ network.

“We are proud to reach yet another significant milestone in WIZZ’s success story, with a new passenger record in the past rolling 12 month-period. More than 30 million passengers travelling, on either business or holiday, have enjoyed WIZZ’s great value flights across our extensive and diverse network.” said Sorina Ratz, Acting Head of Corporate Communications at Wizz Air, “We continue to be one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines, having a strong and consistent double-digit growth every year and provide even more opportunities for our customers to travel at truly lowest prices.
