Because of the decreasing number of new coronavirus infection cases, Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air changed their mask-wearing rules. They announced the relevant new regulations on their website.
According to Blikk, most countries are easing restrictions introduced to baulk the spread of coronavirus. Therefore, Wizz Air decided to change the rules of mask-wearing on their planes. Wearing a mask will be obligatory on all planes if the departure or arrival country prescribes them. Otherwise, mask-wearing will be the free choice of the cabin crew and the passengers.
Wizz Air added that the new rule applies only to those passengers who have a certificate from their doctor saying why they cannot wear a mask. Furthermore, they must have a negative COVID-19 PCR test, which is not older than 48h. Passengers who would like to travel without a face mask have to contact Wizz Air’s helpdesk 48 hours before their travel and tell them they would not wear a mask during the flight. Moreover, they have to arrive 2 hours before their flight is due to show the two aforementioned documents, the medical certificate and the negative PCR test).
However, the cabin crew can also ask for these documents, so you should keep them with you during the flight. Importantly, provided you do not have these documents, you cannot be exempted from obligatory mask-wearing. For those not following the rules, Wizz Air may deny the trip.
Wizz Air announced that they would relaunch many of their former popular summer flights in June. These destinations include Sardine in Italy, Ibiza, and Palma de Mallorca in Spain. Moreover, the low-cost company will extend their Greece portfolio. The new destinations will include Corfu, Hanía, Heraklion, Mykonos, Santorini, Kos, Rhodes, and Zakynthos. Furthermore, they will fly to Burgas in Bulgaria as well.
The Hungarian low-cost airline adds new destinations regularly because they hope that this summer, the number of passengers will reach the pre-pandemic level, index.hu reported.
