Hungary’s low-cost airline Wizz Air is celebrating a milestone today: It has transported 100 million passengers in the past 11 years since its first take off, according to an announcement issued by the company.
The 100 millionth passenger was on Wizz Air’s London-Luton flight today, and each passenger received a free Wizz Air ticket as a gift for celebrating the event, Wizz Air said. As an extension of the celebration, Wizz Air will offer a 20% discount on each ticket purchased by Wizz Discount Club members today and tomorrow.
“In 2004 our first flight took off from Poland to the United Kingdom, and today, 11 years later, we are celebrating 100 million passengers traveling from more than 110 airports in 38 countries,” CEO József Váradi said. “I am proud of the fact that I can work together with a team of 2,400 professionals in our aim to offer incredibly low ticket prices,” the CEO added. We are committed to further increasing passenger traffic in all the regions we fly,” Váradi said.
