The Hungarian-rooted airline Wizz Air offers season tickets for certain flights.
MultiPass will be the name of the subscription service that WizzAir is launching. This new feature will be introduced for the first time on flights to and from Poland and will be available on flights within Italy.
According to an email sent to users, the service is available for a fixed monthly price, but the exact price has not been disclosed by Wizz Air yet. It is not clear when the service will be launched. What is certain is that it will be a separate service, hvg.hu reports. There will be several versions, and the fixed tariff will be paid for six months.
After paying the fee, subscribers will receive tokens, which will be available for specific flights. According to the prospectus, there is no need to pay for anything other than the fixed fare, but Priority and/or 20 kilo dispatched parcel charges can be added as an add-on.
Few airlines in the air transport sector do this. In the US, Alaska Airlines was the first major airline to introduce a charter service last year. It was available for USD 49 a month, but with the important restriction that you had to book 90 days in advance. If you didn’t change your ticket, the price could go up to USD 749.
So, they are copying similar schemes operated by Ryanair and easyJet.
The one innovation that they really need is to improve their on-time delivery and cancellations.
