Wizz Air Chief Executive Says Airline Is Likely To Fly More This Summer Than It Did Pre-COVID-19 Pandemic

Wizz Air is likely to fly more this summer than it did pre-COVID-19 pandemic, its chief executive has said, as European COVID-19 travel restrictions loosen.

"Ramping Up"

"We are ramping up. We are seeing a less constrained environment going into peak summer and quite likely we're going to be above our 2019 capacity in a month or two from now," chief executive Jozsef Varadi told an online airlines event.

Already Operating Approximately 60% To 65% Of Pre-Pandemic Capacity

He said that Wizz is already operating approximately 60% to 65% of its pre-pandemic 2019 capacity.

Ahead Of Many Other European Airlines

That puts Hungary-based Wizz, which has an eastern European focus, ahead of many other European airlines which are operating less than half their pre-pandemic capacity.
