Some 65 million passengers have now travelled with Wizz Air from London Luton Airport (LLA).
The person declared to be the lucky number was welcomed on a flight from London Luton Airport to Istanbul. Wizz Air has a longstanding relationship with London Luton Airport, the destination for the airline’s first flight from Katowice in Poland.
Jonathan Rayner, Chief Commercial Officer at London Luton Airport, said: “The success of Wizz Air at London Luton Airport is testament to our strong partnership. Since that first flight in 2004, both Wizz and LLA have made huge advances, achieving impressive growth in both passenger numbers and the choice of destinations. Our priority, as ever, is to continue to deliver a simple and friendly passenger experience as we move towards the next key milestone of our relationship with Wizz – next year’s 20th anniversary.”
Wizz Air currently operates around 100 flights per day to 58 routes. Last month, the airline announced that London Luton Airport would be an all A321neo base by 2025.
Wizz Air and LLA have also announced a new route to Sphinx International Airport, the perfect destination to explore the city of Giza and the vibrant Egyptian capital of Cairo.
The new route will take off each Monday, Wednesday and Friday and will start from October 30th.
