Soon, you will be able to book tickets for the summer of 2022 as well.
Airlines are gearing up for the revival of tourism: we have already written about British Airways’ return to Budapest, Ryanair’s announcement of 4 new routes from the Hungarian capital, and Air France’s summer schedule, including 14 flights per week from Budapest to Paris. Wizz Air is not an exception: they are planning to operate at 60-80% capacity this summer but could ramp it up to 100%, if necessary, said chief executive József Váradi at a conference which we covered in this article.
Wizz Air might not have announced any new routes from Hungary for 2021, but they have thought of those who are itching to book a flight but cannot (or do not want to) travel this year.
As vg.hu writes, Wizz Air has recently published their 2022 summer schedule. In their press release, they highlight that those travelling from Hungary to Greece or vice versa will have an easy time: the airline will offer flights from Budapest to 9 Greek destinations in total, including Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, and the new addition, Chania in Crete. (Greece could also become even more popular among Hungarian travellers as they have announced that they will accept all types of vaccinations.) Flights to and from Portugal and Malta are also included in the schedule, while those who would prefer to discover Northern Europe will get to choose between Stockholm, Malmö, Göteborg, and Reykjavík. The Icelandic capital will be connected to Budapest by two flights every week.
According to travelo.hu, tickets for next summer’s flights will be available from 22 May, except for Wizz Discount Club members, who already have access to them. In their press release, Wizz Air also said that
they will place great emphasis on protecting the health of their passengers and crew by using an effective in-flight air circulation system
in addition to the compulsory safety measures and on-board protocol. Despite the financial difficulties of the past year, they wish to provide an opportunity for everyone to travel at an affordable price.
