Wizz Air’s carbon emission

As a result of the numerous fuel-saving initiatives and constant modernization of our technology, we are proud to have one of the lowest emission intensity rates in the European aviation industry. In the 2020 Financial Year, carbon emissions per passenger kilometer were 57.28 grams, down from 59.9, which is almost half the industry average. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the lower load factors on our flights, our carbon efficiency was negatively impacted in 2021 Financial Year. Since then, Wizz Air has witnessed a noteworthy improvement which was not present everywhere within the industry. Moving into the 2023 Financial Year, there was a continued progress as passenger load factors further improved, consequently leading to a reduction in emissions intensity, reaching 53.8 g CO2/RPK - the lowest ever carbon intensity, reported by Wizz Air for a 12-month period. Read more in our annual report.

Commitment to further reduce our environmental impact

Wizz Air is strongly committed to reducing climate change impact globally and locally alike. We support the Paris Agreement aiming to limit temperature rise below 1.5C as well as the European Green Deal and the Destination 2050 guidelines aiming to reach net zero emissions by 2050.

Wizz Air is proud to have the lowest CO2 emissions (G/RPK) in Europe. We commit to further reducing our CO2 emission by 25% until 2030 compared to 2019 levels and to further limiting other greenhouse gas emissions. The ambitious plan is driven by our latest technology fleet, fuel saving initiatives and usage of sustainable aviation fuel.

Alongside technology and operational improvements, alternative fuels are an essential part of decarbonising the industry. Wizz Air has established its SAF strategy, which includes securing offtake agreements with suppliers for the future. To support Wizz Air’s ambitious sustainability journey and ensure sufficient supplies of SAF to meet future blending mandates, the Company has signed Memorandum of Understandings with several SAF providers.

On 10 May, Wizz Air took off from Budapest Airport for the first time using a blend of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ supplied by MOL. During the SAF test, Wizz Air's five newest Airbus A321neo aircraft were fuelled with a total blend of 23.5 tonnes containing 37% pure SAF and 63% Jet A1 fuel. The aircraft carried passengers from Budapest to Paris, Luqa (Malta), Madrid, Castellon, Eindhoven. Due to the crucial role of SAF in decarbonising aviation, in April 2023, the airline announced that it is investing £5,000,000 to support Firefly’s SAF process development to achieve ASTM qualification. This is Wizz Air’s first equity investment in SAF research and development.

Carbon offsetting

Offset journeys

Wizz Air has launched a carbon offsetting scheme as part of its wider commitment to reducing emissions in November 2020, enabling passengers to calculate their flights’ environmental impact and offset the carbon emissions thereof. The scheme, in partnership with climate-focused technology company, Chooose, provides passengers with the option to offset their journeys by supporting trusted, high-impact climate projects around the world.


We are proud to offer to our passengers a fully transparent travel footprint calculator where passengers can easily calculate and offset their flights’ carbon emissions.

Paperless Flight deck

We use tablets in our flight decks, saving over
25,000 printed pages in each aircraft

Lighter seats

Continuously investing in newer, lighter seats

Washing engines more often
than required by regulation

We wash every engine around ten times per year – the cleaner they are,
the smoother they run, and therefore less fuel is needed.

Single engine taxiing after landing

Saving fuel by turning off one of the engines after arrival

Lowest CO2 emissions per passenger in the industry

Since 2012, we have implemented several projects including the improvement of
our flying speed and approach and optimised our network which add up to  
nearly 100,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year (3% per aircraft)

Reducing noise pollution

Vortex generators reduce noise levels


These amazing inventions can reduce fuel burn by 2% and CO2 emissions by 540 tonnes per year per plane. The whole fleet will be equipped by 2024.


From 2020, our Airbus321neo
aircraft will have new brakes
which are 20 kg lighter

We strive to be an economy booster for WIZZ destinations.

Affordable air travel can improve the lives of many travellers, but it’s easy to forget how it can impact a city. Few things are as good for a city’s economy as direct air links – particularly when those air links are at Wizz Air’s lowest fares. As more and more people have access to affordable air travel, more travellers boost the local economy of the places they visit.

Supplier Code of Conduct

The Wizz Air Group is devoting special attention to environmental, social and economic responsibility during its operations and has introduced its renewed Supplier Code of Conduct as of April 2021. Wizz Air is committed to doing business with suppliers and partners who supply products and/or services to Wizz Air Group who share Wizz Air`s commitments towards an environmentally and commercially sustainable operation and operates with high social and labour standards. The Supplier Code of Conduct applies to all Suppliers of Wizz Air as well as their suppliers and sub-contractors and it forms integral part of all contracting packages and processes.

Board/Management, quality & integrity

Full board oversight via the Sustainability and Culture Committee. By 2026, we pledge to achieve a rate of at least 40% female representation in management positions (Heads, Officers, EVPs and CEO). For this, we have included the gender diversity of the Management Team in our reward structure as of financial year 2022. We have also made a strong commitment to close the diversity gap in our Board room, with the aim of achieving a 33% female board of directors by 2026, in accordance with the Hampton Alexander initiative.

Risk Management

The Board has a full oversight of the Enterprise Risk Management process (ERM), with a robust assessment of the principal risks related to the business model, future performance, solvency or liquidity of Wizz Air. We manage climate related and ESG risks through our corporate ERM framework.

Audit & Risk Committee

This risk management process feeds into the Risk Council, into the Audit and Risk Committee and into the Board of Directors and as such has strong support and priority in terms of driving our business plans and the actions to mitigate the risks.

As of Financial Year 2021, Wizz Air has aligned its external reporting with the TCFD recommendations.
