Surprising last minute offers have appeared on the website of the Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air. Normally expensive long-haul holiday destinations have now been offered at really good prices. For example, Madeira and Egypt are available for under HUF 13,000 (EUR 34) in October!
Last-minute Wizz Air offers
Feel like going somewhere far just before winter hits? You’ve come to the right place. The Hungarian low-cost carrier is now offering some long-haul holiday destinations practically for pennies. Okosutas gathered some of these offers.
The aviation and travel news website even clarified what the background of the last-minute offers is. Before the cancellations due to the engine recall issue begin, for some reason, Wizz has freed up capacity for October and added a few new flights on existing routes.
The filling of the suddenly introduced replacement flights has now started from zero. Thus, they are being quoted at unusually low prices.
Thus, the new Sunday flight to Madeira is HUF 12,974 (EUR 33.79). Of course, this also requires that there is now a 20% promotion this whole week for October flights. It’s interesting to see the cheap ticket, as the long-listed flights on other days are typically available for HUF 30-40,000 (EUR 78.14-104.18).
Hurghada and Sharm el-Sheikh
The situation with Hurghada is the same as with Madeira, but on Thursdays.
Sharm el-Sheikh is different because its opening has been brought forward by a few weeks, so all flights here are new and freshly announced until the end of October.
These destinations are excellent all winter; however, tickets are on average much more expensive later.
It’s worth taking the opportunity for a trip in October – it’s still very hot in the Emirates, it can be 35-40 degrees, so plan from the second half of the month, Okosutas advises.
