Wizz Air is launching the Wizz Air – Fly the Greenest Sustainability Campaign, which could further strengthen its position as an industry leader as the greenest airline.
Wizz Air sent a statement containing their aims and goals to iho.hu.
Wizz Air’s latest campaign aims to raise awareness of the company’s sustainability efforts. Wizz Air CEO József Váradi wrote an open letter to travellers, outlining the airline’s seven green steps and encouraging them to make the right decision when flying.
Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest-growing airline, is committed to serving more and more passengers in the most sustainable way possible. Here are seven reasons why Wizz Air is the greenest choice when it comes to air travel:
- The average carbon footprint of a passenger travelling on a Wizz Air plane is only 57.2 grams per passenger kilometre (pre-epidemic level). If all airlines were as efficient as Wizz Air, CO2 emissions from European aviation would be reduced by thirty-four per cent in one day.
- Wizz Air does not fly half-empty aircraft, in order to avoid unnecessary pollution.
- Wizz Air does not have a first class, which is also one of the factors of unnecessary emissions.
- The airline only flies on direct routes. One takeoff, one landing, no transfers, no extra fuel burning.
- Wizz Air has the youngest, most modern fleet of competing airlines in Europe.
- The airline uses world-class engines and aircraft, which are key to low emissions.
- There is no direct train route of less than four hours on any of Wizz Air’s routes.
Wizz Air has one of the lowest CO2 emissions per passenger kilometre in Europe and is paying close attention to reducing its CO2 emissions by twenty-five per cent by 2030 compared to 2019 levels.
Wizz Air operates one of the youngest fleets in the world, which currently consists of one hundred and forty-nine aircraft belonging to the Airbus A320 / 321 / neo family. The average age of the machines is five years, which is well below the industry average (around ten years). The number will fall to 3.6 years by 2024 and to 3.2 years by 2026, further strengthening the airline’s commitment to sustainability.
The CEO thinks of an even more promising future
“Wizz Air is an ambitious airline, and our strategy is to expand the company to a fleet of five hundred aircraft over the next decade while continuing to offer affordable travel for all. The campaign shows how growth and sustainability can go hand in hand and encourage those who want to travel to take into account the facts and the latest technology when deciding on aviation instead of vague promises for the future,” said József Váradi, the CEO of Wizz Air, to iho.hu
