WIZZ AIR EXTENDS TITLE SPONSORSHIP OF DEBRECEN AIRPORT RUN
Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today celebrates the significant milestone of its one millionth Debrecen passenger. The lucky customer arrived from Moscow with the newest WIZZ flight and was greeted upon arrival with a value voucher.

While employing 35 local, customer-oriented employees at its Debrecen base, the airline’s operations also support over 200* indirect jobs on annual base in the region, stimulating aviation, transportation, hospitality and tourism industries.
At the press conference held on the occasion of the remarkable milestone, Wizz Air also announced that it extended its title sponsorship of the Debrecen Airport Run.
