company overview

short but rich history

The plan to launch Wizz Air was only conceived in June 2003 when six people with a wide range of airline expertise, as well as successful track records from across different industries, teamed up with József Váradi, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer. In just three months, Wizz Air was a registered company ready to fly.

The first flight took off on 19th May 2004 from Katowice. Today Wizz Air offers over 390 routes from 21 bases in the region: Gdansk,Lublin, Poznan, Katowice, Warsaw and Wroclaw, in Poland, Budapest in Hungary, Sofia in Bulgaria, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca Tirgu Mures, Craiova and Timisoara in Romania, Kyiv in Ukraine, Prague in Czech Republic, Belgrade in Serbia, Vilnius in Lithuania, Skopje in Macedonia, Riga in Latvia, Tuzla in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosice in Slovakia.

On 25 February 2015 Wizz Air successfully completed its IPO on the London Stock Exchange. The company is now listed on the LSE under the ticker WIZZ.

On its 11th anniversary WIZZ announced a full brand rejuvenation and new aircraft livery to demonstrate its continued commitment to provide a positive customer experience. The WIZZ moved to a fresh, more vibrant, sophisticated look and feel and some of the initiatives introduced in conjunction with the branding initiative were seat allocation and a dual fare type system.
