Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has operated yesterday another rescue flight carrying 138 Macedonian citizens from London Luton who had no alternative to return home due to the COVID-19 pandemic travel restrictions. The new rescue flights are again the result of the already close cooperation between Wizz Air and the Government of the Republic of Northern Macedonia. Wizz Air has once more answered promptly when it had the chance to help passengers who needed to get back to their loved ones.
The first flight was operated from Skopje to London Luton, landing at the destination at 14:15 local time on 6April. From there it returned with 138 Macedonians on board to Skopje where it landed at 19:00 local time. All together Wizz Air has brought home to their families over 600 Macedonian citizens after several other rescue flights operated since the end of March, getting back to their home country Macedonians from Croatia, Malta and Germany. All flights are operated with Airbus A320 aircraft. Wizz Air is committed to helping its Macedonian and European passengers. The airline’s actions clearly demonstrate the company’s belief that cooperation is the only way to get over any challenges raised by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: „It is a great feeling to be able to help those who need to return to their families in this difficult period as we know that together we can face this pandemic more efficient. Wizz Air is dedicated to its passengers and will remain so regardless of the context. 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.”
