Wizz Air, Europe's fastest growing and greenest* airline, has launched the Travel Planning Map, a new and continuously updated website search tool designed to help passengers determine which destinations in the WIZZ network they can fly to at that precise moment in time and helpfully inform them of coronavirus-related travel restrictions in place.
During these uncertain times, passengers can rely on Wizz Air’s Travel Planning Map to check operating routes and relevant travel rules using a colour-coded system. To use the map, passengers simply should click on their desired departure airport and then can choose from any available destinations in the WIZZ network. Countries and airports are colour-coded depending on restrictions – green meaning there are no restrictions to enter the country via air, yellow meaning there are partial restrictions (test/quarantine/residence) to enter the country via air and red meaning there is a full or partial entry ban to the country via air.
For further information on travel regulations, passengers can click on specific routes to take them to a country-specific travel information page which includes relevant links to local Government websites, useful travel pages and any pre-departure mandatory forms that need to be filled out.
The Travel Planning Map is updated daily at 18:00 CET, but Wizz Air recommends that passengers double-check entry requirements before departure as they might be subject to changes daily and the airline always encourages its passengers to purchase WIZZ Flex for ultimate peace of mind. By adding WIZZ Flex to a booking, passengers can rest assured that if circumstances change, or they simply wish to travel on a different date, or to a different destination, they can rebook on any WIZZ flight of their choice.
Zsuzsa Poos, Chief Customer & Marketing Officer at Wizz Air, said: “We are always looking to enhance customer experience all through the passenger journey as well as on our website and this new search tool will make it easier for passengers to determine where they can and can’t travel. We believe that the Travel Planning Map will ease passengers’ concerns about travelling during these uncertain times as it keeps them up to date with the latest travel information so that passengers can continue to discover new and exciting destinations in the WIZZ network. Our purpose is simple, to liberate lives through affordable travel, and the Travel Planning Map is yet another way we are fulfilling this promise for our customers.”
