Wizz Air we strive to serve more and more passengers every day, in the most environmentally
Read our sustainability manifesto here. And if you decide to fly, here are seven reasons why Wizz Air is your greenest choice:
This is based on the reporting for 2023 financial year and represents the lowest ever carbon intensity result we have ever recorded in one financial year.
Pre-COVID, 94% of our seats were occupied on average. In comparison, the industry average in the same period was between 70-85%, and sadly, empty seats still have a CO2 footprint.
Leaving seats empty to make room for somebody to spread out and read the newspaper more comfortably just doesn’t make sense.
Because as you might have heard, 15-20% of the fuel consumption of the average short-haul flight happens during take-off and landing.
The Airbus A320neo family engines are the most efficient in the industry, because they can produce a greater amount of thrust while consuming the same amount of fuel, ensuring the lowest fuel consumption when compared to other engines used in commercial aircraft
We mostly fly Airbus A321neos, and the average age of our fleet is currently less than five years, well below the average age of our major competitors, which is around 10 years. Younger fleet means better, more fuel- and carbon-efficient technology, ensuring that we are further reducing our CO2 per passenger/km.
When planning flights and new destinations, our teams review alternative transport modes. We do not operate flights, where direct train alternatives are already available on the same city-pair.
