Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced that the airline will carry the Hungarian National Team to the first two games of the World Championship qualifications, which will take place in September and October in Vagar, Faroe Islands and in Riga, Latvia respectively.
WIZZ became the airline of choice of the Hungarian National Team after a successful cooperation during the European Championship, where the airline carried the team between the match locations in France and back to Hungary on one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft.
Wizz Air also announced that, in order to allow Hungarian fans the opportunity to support their favorite players on spot at the upcoming games, it will launch special fan flights between Budapest and the locations of the matches.
WIZZ will operate the flights between Budapest and Faroe Islands on 6 September and Budapest and Riga on 10 October, both with one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft equipped with 180 seats. The flights will depart during the day to ensure that Hungarian football enthusiasts make it to the match on time and depart back late night after the game. Tickets are only available as return and are already on sale on wizzair.com from HUF 61980 / EUR 199.98*.
