Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today celebrates a major milestone with one million passengers carried on its low fare Memmingen routes.
The first WIZZ flight took off from Allgäu Airport in August 2009 and since then, the airline has constantly expanded its low fare route network connecting Bavaria with ever more Central and Eastern European destinations. With the recently announced Podgorica, Kutaisi and Nis services, Wizz Air now offers 13 routes to nine countries from the airport.
Wizz Air’s Germany network has also seen a significant growth in the past years. In calendar year 2015, over one million passengers flew with WIZZ to and from Germany, which represents a 25% growth year over year. Underlining its commitment to the country, the airline has recently launched operations from Berlin Schönefeld, Hamburg and Karlsruhe/Baden Baden, growing the number of its German airports to nine. Wizz Air’s low fare route network from Germany now consists of 62 routes to 20 destinations across 12 countries.
