Geneva, 4 July 2022: Wizz Air Holdings Plc (“Wizz Air”), the fastest-growing and one of the most sustainable European airlines, today announces passenger and CO2 emission statistics for June 2022.
In June 2022, Wizz Air carried 4,340,115 passengers, representing a 179% increase compared to June 2021, at a load factor of 86.1%.
Wizz Air continued to grow its network and improve its customer offering in June, including:
- Wizz Air has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Airbus to explore the potential for hydrogen-powered aircraft operations. The cooperation will allow Wizz Air to analyse the potential for highly efficient, ultra-low-cost hydrogen powered operations.
- Wizz Air also announced it will be returning to a systemic jet fuel hedge policy. Given the sustained and ongoing volatility in commodity prices Wizz Air has decided to reinstate a hedging policy and will be aligning it to those of its peers.
