WIZZ AIR AND TAV CELEBRATED 12TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE AIRLINE
With a promotional flight in a brand new Airbus A321, Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today at Skopje Airport together with TAV Macedonia simbolocally celebrated the 12th anniversary of its first flight.
Wizz Air’s CEO Jozef Varadi and aircraft’s crew were welcomed at ,,Alexander the Great’’ by TAV Macedonia General Manager Zoran Krstevski and the whole airport’s management team, while aircraft traditionally saluted with a water bridge.
József Váradi, the Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air said: “Over the last twelve years, Wizz Air has revolutionized air travel across Central and Eastern Europe. We currently connect 39 countries, with destinations stretching from Europe to the Middle East. Last year, we launched our refreshed brand and took delivery of our first Airbus A321 aircraft, the most efficient single-aisle aircraft in the world and with our ongoing deliveries, our fleet remains one of the youngest in Europe. Our mission is to seek constantly to improve our passengers’ travel experience and, today, we are taking the next step with the launch of our new website. Reflecting the innovation that WIZZ has delivered since its first flight, we are listening to our passengers and making booking flights even easier – the new Express Booking function is revolutionary and allows bookings at WIZZ’s low fares to be made in just three clicks within 30 seconds. We will continue to develop our route network to Europe and beyond and look forward to welcoming returning and new customers on board to experience Wizz Air’s great service delivered by our fantastic crew.”
Zoran Krstevski, TAV Macedonia General Manager, said: ,,Landing on the new Airbus A321 of WizzAir airline and celebration of their 12th anniversary is a good opportunity to confirm the good cooperation between us as airport operator and WizzAir as an airline. WizzAir began flights to Skopje Skopje International Airport in June 2011, with the first flight to London (Luton). Today we can say that WizzAir flies to 24 destinations connecting Macedonia with 11 European countries. The growing network of destinations and increased traffic at both Macedonian airports encourages us to suggest new destinations, and why not the overseas traffic''
Founded in September 2003, the first Wizz Air flight took place from Katowice, Poland on 19 May 2004, launching an ambitious goal of establishing a low-cost airline operating out of Central and Eastern Europe. Having successfully achieved this, the airline continues to innovate to best serve its customers’ needs and today announces the launch of the airline’s new website as well as new aircraft capacity and routes.
Wizz Air’s new website has a responsive layout easily adjustable to any size of display: be it a smartphone, a tablet or a desktop, and it is easier to use than any other current airline website. The revolutionary Express Booking function is a first-of-its-kind feature that allows customers to purchase a ticket in just three clicks within 30 seconds. WIZZ is first rolling out the new website’s mobile version, to meet the needs to WIZZ’s tech-savvy customers as mobile transactions double year on year. Over the next weeks, the website will be rolled out across all platforms. The website is already live and can be accessed directly via smartphone through wizzair.com or by going to m.wizzair.com from any device.
