Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has operated yesterday additional rescue flights carrying over 90 Macedonian citizens from Germany (Berlin and Cologne) who have been stuck due to the COVID-19 pandemic travel restrictions. The rescue flights are the result of a cooperation between Wizz Air and the Government of the Republic of Northern Macedonia with Wizz Air responding again promptly to the opportunity to reach out to passengers who need its help.
The first flight was operated from Skopje to Berlin Schoenefeld, landing at the destination at 13:30 local time. From there it took off to Cologne and then returned to Skopje where it landed at 18:00 local time. Over 90 Macedonian passengers were on the flight to Skopje, bringing the total number of Macedonian citizens helped by Wizz Air the past week to over 460 after two other rescue flights were operated on the 27 of March, getting home Macedonians from Croatia and Malta. Wizz Air didn’t hesitate when it was asked for help again and carried its passengers home safe and fast. Wizz Air truly believes that in these harsh times cooperation and working together is the only way to overcome the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and remains loyal to its mission of serving passengers travelling to and from Macedonia.
Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: We are happy and grateful to be by the side of our passengers once again during this period, helping them get back to their homes. Wizz Air is always committed to serving its passengers – in such a difficult time, particularly. The safety of our passengers and crew has always been Wizz Air’s number one priority and we remain true to this principle under any conditions, especially during these times.
