Wizz airline planning to resume flights


Recommended Posts

Today, Wizz Air announced that it will reopen its base at Luton Airport on May 1st. With this move, the low-cost carrier will be restarting select routes, along with introducing new hygiene measures. 

Revised approach 

Last month, the airline halted operations at the Bedfordshire hub due to the global health crisis. However, it now feels that it is in a better position to resume services at the airport.

According to a press release sent to Simple Flying, the Hungarian outfit will follow government regulations and support physical distancing during boarding and enhanced cleanliness during flights. It also advises passengers to check-in and make additional purchases online to reduce non-essential contact with staff.

While on board, flight attendants will be required to wear masks and gloves. Meanwhile, they will distribute sanitizing wipes to each passenger. Moreover, the operator will continue to undergo a rigorous daily cleaning process. Each plane will be entirely disinfected overnight in line with official guidelines.

Wizz is planning to fly to the below destinations from Luton from next month:

  • Budapest: Hungary
  • Romania: Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, Craiova, Iasi, Suceava, Targu Mures, Satu Mare, and Timisoara
  • Serbia: Belgrade
  • Slovakia. Kosice and Bratislava
  • Portugal: Lisbon
  • Spain: Tenerife
  • Israel: Tel Aviv
