The Hungarian low-cost airline, Wizz Air, has been expanding not only in Central and Eastern Europe but also in the Middle East and Central Asia. Experts say that the budget airline conquered the market of carrying Eastern European guest workers to the West. Furthermore, they aim to connect Europe with Asia as well. It seems they will launch a new flight to an exotic Asian country soon.
Budflyer, a Hungarian travel news Facebook page, wrote yesterday that Wizz Air would like to expand targeting not only India but also New Delhi’s greatest regional adversary, Pakistan. At least, that is what Robert Carey, the president of the Hungarian low-cost airline, talked about at the CAPA Airline Leader conference in Budapest.
Aviation Geeks mentioned in a May 2021 article that József Váradi, the CEO of Wizz Air, headed a delegation paying a visit to Pakistan’s transport minister in Islamabad. Then, they talked about a flight between the Pakistani capital and Budapest. It may happen we will be able to travel from Budapest to India and Pakistan soon.
