London Luton and Wizz Air have celebrated a significant milestone this week. The handling of their 65 millionth passenger.
The lucky passenger was welcomed on a flight to Istanbul. It also represents the long standing relationship the two sides have had since the first flight from Katowice to the area was operated.
Wizz Air currently operates around 100 flights per day to 58 months.
Success of Wizz Air At London Luton “Testament to our Strong Partnership”…
Commenting on this milestone was Jonathan Rayner, the Chief Commercial Officer at London Luton Airport:
“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.”
A Lot of Activity Between The Two Sides…
Wizz Air has been getting up to a lot at London Luton Airport.
Last month, the carrier announced plans to add an additional A321neo at the airport, bringing the total fleet count to 12 aircraft out of that base.
The airport believes this will provide greater accessibility to popular destinations, with frequencies due to increase to the following in the Winter 2023/24 season:
- Hurghada –4 weekly flights
- Sharm el Sheikh – 3weekly flights
- Tirana – 35 weekly flights
- Prague – 12 weekly flights
- Reykjavik – 7 weekly flights
- Amman –5 weekly flights
More recently, the carrier has just inaugurated services between London Luton and Brasov, as the route network continues to grow at that airport.
Overall, this is a significant milestone, and all eyes will be on how the performance between the two sides will continue towards the end of the year, and also it’s 20th anniversary of operations too.
