We are set for further growth on the back of our continuing fleet and network expansion in 2015 to bring more low fares to more travelers in Central and Eastern Europe. We are proud of contributing to the economic development of our markets and creating new direct and indirect job opportunities resulting from our growth” József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air, said.
