Wizz Air issued its November traffic results on December 4, outlining stable growth both in the number of passengers served and in its network.
The LCC reported route expansion that includes 12 new services to/from Poland and Ukraine, 2 new services to/from Hungary, 2 new services to/from Romania, and 1 new service to/from Lithuania. The carrier has also increased its all-Airbus fleet to 105 aircraft after taking delivery of a new A321.
As a result of the network expansion, there was also a stable growth in passenger numbers and the carrier served a total of 2,400,337 travelers in November 2018 compared to 2,157,742 last November, which entails a growth of 11.2%. Its capacity grew by 7.7% and the overall load factor reached 91.2% marking an increase by 2.9 pts.
For the twelve months between November 2017 and November 2018, Wizz Air carried 33,401,909 passengers, which is a growth of 19.7% compared to the previous period. The growth in available seats was by 18.6% and the load factor increased by 0.9 pts to reach 92.3%.
Wizz Air intends to remain the leading LCC in Central and Eastern Europe. Proof of that is the new €30 million pilot and cabin crew training center that was opened in Budapest and can accommodate up to 300 trainees on a daily basis. The carrier is about to open its 26th base in Krakow in the Summer of 2019 and deploy two new Airbus A321s to operate 12 new routes to nine countries from the new hub.
