"Recently we have been experiencing a strong shift of customer preference towards Wizz Air in Hungary resulting from our own expansion in a declining market as well as the weaknesses of competing airlines. Building on this momentum we aim at achieving over 20% passenger traffic growth in Budapest in 2010." - said József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air.
