Focus on an Airline: Wizz Air
Friday, February 06, 2009
In our effort to help you learn more about the aviation industry, here's some information on a great airline called Wizz Air. Not familiar with it? It's headquartered in Budapest, Hungary; last year it carried nearly six million passengers on its fleet of 20 Airbus A320 aircraft -- each seating 180 passengers. The airline has bases in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania and most recently in the Ukraine. Wizz Air has a very busy schedule going to London also: currently 91 Wizz Air flights arrive and depart each week from Luton Airport.
Since February 2008 Wizz Air has increased its routes from 81 to 106 -- and the number of airports served to 44 from 40. The fleet is expected to grow 30% in 2009 and a further 25 routes will be added.
More aircraft are being added to their fleet also: Two new aircraft will arrive in July and December, plus the airline has placed an order with Airbus for an additional 66 aircraft.
