In 2003, six specialists in the field of air transportation established the low-cost company Wizz Air, which was headed by Jozsef Varadi. The first flight was made in 2004 from Budapest to the Polish city of Katowice. A decade later, the airline became one of the TOP-5 largest budget carriers in Central and Eastern Europe. By 2020, low-cost operates flights to 600 European cities.
The implementation of transportation via the Internet (savings on sales offices), the minimum time between boarding and takeoff (30-40 minutes), and cooperation with several subsidiary European airports allows the company to offer the lowest fares. All services are paid: check-in at the airport, meals, luggage, choice of seats in the aircraft. Offering minimum prices for its flights, wide geography of flights, using comfortable airliners, and providing quality service on board, the company is the sales leader among European low-cost airlines.
