Wizz Air has announced another milestone having carried more than 50 million passengers from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport and Debrecen International Airport combined from Hungary  since its launch in 2004.

“We are honoured to have been chosen 50 million times by our Hungarian passengers and this is very positive feedback from them. Today, the airline, which is 20 years old this year, flies to nearly 200 destinations in 53 countries, from Hungary, 31 countries can be reached on 74 routes. The airline has set the benchmark for responsible aviation through its sustainable operating practices, innovative initiatives and a constantly rejuvenated fleet, in order to minimise its ecological footprint. As a result, the company has been recognised as the world’s most sustainable airline year after year,” as can be read in Wizz Air’s announcement.

Wizz Air has expanded its Budapest offer with six new destinations so far this year and  launched its newest flight from Debrecen to Istanbul and increased the number of flights on several routes.

“Our long-standing goal is to get as many people who want to travel to their desired destination as possible, at an affordable price, and the new flights and flight extensions as well serve this purpose,” Wizz Air’s communications manager Zsuzsa Trubek said. 

In June 2024, the airline will put two more modern Airbus A321neo aircrafts into service at one of its largest bases in Budapest, and during the summer will add six new flights connecting Budapest with cities in Europe and beyond. This summer, travellers can now fly to Brussels’ main airport (Zaventem), Bucharest, Yerevan, Stuttgart, Valencia and soon Brasov.

Tickets can be purchased directly on Wizz Air’s  website  or  mobile app.
