At WIZZ we believe that every trip you take, every encounter and experience you have, leaves its mark and builds the person you are. As the airline that has one of the most unique destination networks in Europe, we are here to take you to these places - so you can fly away from boredom, fill up on experiences, live through moments and make new memories.

How it All Started

From our first flight in 2004, to celebrating a remarkable milestone of 200 million passengers carried in 2019, our passion to make flying affordable to everyone, everywhere, is what fuels us to keep soaring higher. Looking ahead, only the sky is our limit.

Wizz Air spreads its wings

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

Our first flight

Our first flight took off on the 19th of May 2004 from Katowice to London Luton.
