NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART AIRCRAFT AT BUDAPEST BASE
Wizz Air, the largest LCC in Ukraine and Europe’s greenest* airline today has announced the launch of two new routes to the Hungarian capital from two Ukrainian cities of Lviv and Kharkiv. Such expansion is possible thanks to the arrival of another state-of-the-art Airbus A321neo aircraft at its base in Budapest in June 2020. Tickets for the new routes are already on sale and can be booked from only UAH 569** on wizzair.com and the airline’s mobile app.
New services to Budapest
With Budapest being accessible for Ukrainians from Kyiv since 2011 and flights from Odesa to be launched this October, WIZZ is further expanding its operations from Ukraine and announces a launch of flights from Lviv and Kharkiv to this Central European city. By offering these new direct services, now WIZZ is making Budapest closer to Ukrainian passengers and connects it with four major cities in Ukraine – Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv and Odesa.
As one of the most rapidly developing cities in Europe, Budapest is skilfully combining its heritage and the 19th-century architecture with contemporary artistic style. Much of the city and its sights have been granted UNESCO World Heritage Site Status – from its iconic Parliament building to the Royal Palace and Castle Hill, among others. When enjoying these city’s features, one can unwind in between the sightseeing adventures and hit famous thermal baths for the spa experience or try out traditional Hungarian rich cuisine with fine selection of wines. With a wide range of things to do and see, everyone will definitely find here something unique to make a visit unforgettable.
Wizz Air in Ukraine
Wizz Air is the pioneer of affordable travel in Ukraine, and since its first international flight from Kyiv to London Luton in 2008, the airline has carried over 9 million passengers to and from Ukraine. With these announced routes from Kharkiv and Lviv to Budapest, now WIZZ offers 55 routes to 13 European countries from as low fares as UAH 289**.The airline’s operations continue to provide Ukrainian passengers affordable travel opportunities connecting Ukraine with the rest of Europe, while contributing to the development of the local community and economy and stimulating the local job market in aviation and tourism sectors.
Wizz Air is the “greenest” airline
With the arrival of the newest A321neo, WIZZ is also adding to its network a new daily service from Budapest to Brussels Airport, the Belgian’s capital main airport. The airline operates one of the youngest fleets in Europe, with the average age of 4.7 years. As a result, Wizz Air was the airline with the smallest environmental footprint in Europe once again in August 2019, with only 57.7 grams CO2 emissions per passenger per kilometre. The company currently has a total of 271 Airbus A321neo, Airbus A321neo and Airbus A321XLR aircraft on order. With the new aircraft, the airline will continue to drive efficiency parallel to further decreasing its environmental footprint by 1/3 for over the next decade. The Airbus A321neo, six of which are already in operation at WIZZ’s Budapest base, incorporates the latest technologies in aviation. It offers a 50 percent reduction in noise footprint, a 20 percent reduction in fuel consumption, while also reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 50 percent.
WIZZ AIR’S NEWEST ROUTES FROM UKRAINE
Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air said: “Wizz Air remains committed to Ukraine and to our mission of offering more affordable travel opportunities to discover Europe and beyond. Adding a new, state-of-the-art A321neo to our Budapest fleet in June 2020 enables us to offer Ukrainians even more exciting travel opportunities to discover a fascinating Hungarian capital while making this city accessible to Ukrainian customers from four Ukrainian airports. We are sure that the new services connecting Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv and Odesa with Budapest will be very much appreciated by our Ukrainian passengers who can very soon explore this city at Wizz Air’s lowest fares on our ultra-efficient fleet of Airbus aircraft.”
