WIZZ TOURS ONLINE TRAVEL PLATFORM TO DEBUT IN OCTOBER
Package Holidays soon available on wizztours.com!
Warsaw, 3 July 2013: Wizz Tours, the new online travel platform designed to bring more convenience and savings to holidaymakers, was today presented in Warsaw and Budapest. For the very first time Wizz Air is entering the package holiday market, widening its consumer friendly offer to existing passengers and capturing new customers. The new package holidays will go on sale on the online travel platform wizztours.com from early October and will be available in Polish, Hungarian and in English language. Families and holiday enthusiasts who want to escape the recession will have convenient access to Wizz Air flights paired with accommodation in over 30,000 hotels resulting in significant savings when compared to stand alone flight and hotel bookings. The holiday package offers on wizztours.com are expected to be rolled out to other markets after the upcoming launch in October for Poland and Hungary.
Wizz Tours will be a fully online travel agent. This keeps costs low for consumers as has been proven by the successful low fares offer of Wizz Air which also relies on the internet as a consumer and budget friendly distribution channel. While Wizz Tours is directed to final consumers its attractive offers are also available to be booked by travel agents.
Wizz Air said it will continue to add more attractive holiday destinations to its growing route network and announced today it will start flying to Hurghada (Egypt) from Warsaw, Katowice and Budapest from November. Holiday routes to Barcelona, Bourgas, Dubai, Grenoble, Hurghada, Larnaca, Malta, Tel Aviv and others will be the backbone of wizztours.com from October. More information about Wizz Tour’s package holiday offer will become available gradually over the following weeks and bargain hunters are urged to subscribe immediately for updates on wizztours.com .
Speaking at a press conference in Warsaw, John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air, said: “This is a special day for Wizz Air and for Polish consumers. Millions of passengers enjoy every year Wizz Air’s very low fares, and from October for the very first time consumers will be able to book their WIZZ holiday as a package, giving them more convenience and more savings than buying flights and accommodation separately. Our two websites wizzair.com and wizztours.com will address different consumer needs and we expect that many customers will prefer to save even more by choosing Wizz Air’s package holidays on wizztours.com from October. The growing number of leisure routes, such as the winter sun routes announced today, confirms Wizz Air and Wizz Tours as Poland’s best choice for low fares and great holidays.”
