Wizz Air carried internationally 12 million passengers in 2012

Wizz Air, the largest low fare - low cost company in CEE carried internationally over 12 million passengers in 2012, which represent a 12% increase compared to the previous year.

Last year Wizz Air expanded its transport network from 203 to more than 250 routes, spreading its operations in 29 countries, adding flights to Georgia, Israel, Slovenia and Switzerland. The average load on the aproximatelly 80,000 operated flights exceeded 85%, confirming the popularity of low rates promoted by the company. From and to Romania the company carried 2.76 million passengers in 2012.

 

In 2012 Wizz Air introduced an innovative cabin luggage policy, being the only airline company in Europe that encourages passengers to travel with small luggage on aircraft, in exchange for more efficient embarkation and costs saving. Passengers have also responded positively to the Discount Club relaunching, which rewards the loyal travelers, offering them guaranteed discounts for every booking. Wizz Air plans to purchase new aircrafts in 2013 and to increase the number of carried passengers to 13.5 millions.

 

“Despite the increase of fuel prices and taxes such as APD (air passenger duty) in Great Britain, Wizz Air continued to stimulate the demand for low cost travels and increased traffic by 12% in 2012, which represents one of the biggest increasing rates in the European airline industry. Wizz Air has positioned itself successfully in the top of consumers’ preferences by combining quality services with low fares and promoting the low cost air traffic as an attractive option for the passengers that want comfort, as well as for those who travel on business. We will continue to extend our operations adding new markets and new airports to our route network in 2013”, declared  József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air.
