WIZZ is also delighted to celebrate carrying 30 million passengers on its low-fare routes from London Luton. One lucky passenger travelling from Varna, Bulgaria was greeted upon their arrival at London Luton with a complimentary WIZZ return ticket in honour of the occasion.
To celebrate these important milestones, WIZZ is pleased to offer a Special Seat Sale to its UK customers, slashing up to 20% off flights on all 82 routes in its UK network up until midnight today, Thursday 22 June.

Wizz Air’s local crew is trained to the highest standards and Wizz Air’s fleet is one of the youngest in Europe, ensuring a high-quality customer experience on every flight. The new base aircraft will support the start of operations of three new long awaited routes from London Luton:which is the only direct connection between Kutaisi and the UK. Frequencies on some of WIZZ’s most popular routes to Romania will also increase with the arrival of the new aircraft: Suceava will run five times per week; Constanta four times per week; and Iasi flights will now operate daily.
