Wizz Air has launched six new routes to be operated by British subsidiary Wizz Air UK from London Luton to Corfu, Heraklion, Rhodes, Zakynthos (Greece), Faro (Portugal) and Marrakesh(Morocco). 

    The launch of these new routes comes as the low-cost airline announced new, enhanced hygiene measures to ensure the health and safety of its customers and crew.

    As part of the airline’s new protocols, both cabin crew and passengers are required to wear facemasks throughout the flight, with cabin crew also required to wear gloves.

    All of the airline’s aircraft are further disinfected overnight with the same antiviral solution as used during the stringent daily cleaning schedule.

    Sanitising wipes are handed to each passenger upon entering the aircraft. Onboard magazines have been removed from the aircraft and any onboard purchases are encouraged to be made by contactless payment.

    Passengers are requested to follow physical distancing measures introduced by the local health authorities and are encouraged to make all purchases prior to the flight online, such as checked-in luggage, Wizz Priority and fast security track, to minimise any possible physical contact at the airport. 

    Managing director of Wizz Air UK, Owain Jones, said: “Although travel is currently restricted by government regulations, we are planning for the easing of restrictions as the situation improves and our customers are able to start travelling again.

    “The Wizz team is excited that our network from London Luton will continue to grow to include many new summer and winter sun destinations and our new sanitizing protocols will give our customers the confidence that they can safely rely on Wizz Air’s ultra-low-cost fares to visit these new and exciting destinations on-board Europe’s greenest fleet.

    “As always, our primary concern is the health, safety and well-being of our passengers and crew, and our enhanced protective measures will ensure the most sanitary conditions possible.”
