Wizz Air’s pandemic turnaround is well underway, with passenger numbers increasing soaring in the past year.
The European carrier carried 3.6 million passengers in November, representing a 70 per cent increase compared to November 2021.
In the past 12-months, Wizz Air has carried 44.1 million travellers – a rise of more than 120 per cent.

It chimed with what Ryanair’s boss Michael O’Leary told reporters yesterday, as airlines across the globe try to rebuild their finances.
“Christmas is very strong. At the moment, Christmas bookings are running ahead of where they were pre-Covid in 2019 and pricing is ahead by a low double-digit percentage,” he said.
