Wizz Air sees Budapest passenger numbers climbing to 2.2 mln in 2013
Hungarian low-fare airline Wizz Air expects the number of passengers on its Budapest flights to climb to 2.2 million next year from 1.8 million in 2012, CEO József Váradi said at a press conference on Monday.
Wizz Air will base one more aircraft in Budapest from March, bringing the total to seven, Váradi said. Wizz Air expects total passenger numbers to rise to 13.5 million next year from 12 million in 2012.
The airline flies 250 routes to destinations in 29 countries. It has a fleet of 39 Airbus A 320 aircraft worth more than $500 million. Váradi said Wizz Air would start using Warsaw's Chopin airport, instead of the Modlin airport, from December 21.
