The award for Europe’s Leading Low-Cost Airline was presented to Wizz Air at the 30th annual World Travel Awards event. The budget airline received recognition for its commitment to providing world-class customer service while pioneering efforts in sustainable aviation – stated in the company’s press release.
The World Travel Awards honors the tourism industry’s greatest excellence and innovation.
“We are incredibly honored that the jury has awarded this prestigious prize to Wizz Air. It reaffirms our belief that our dedication to high-quality customer service and sustainable aviation is the right path. This recognition is a testament to the great work of our team and the loyalty of our passengers,”– said András Radó, Senior Communications Manager at Wizz Air, who received the award in Batumi, Georgia.
Wizz Air’s statement articulates that the airline has consistently demonstrated its unwavering commitment to improving customer service, providing pleasant, seamless, and affordable travel experiences to over 45 million passengers just last year.
Wizz Air’s commitment to sustainability is also evident through:
- The number of fuel-efficient aircraft in its fleet.
- Investments in the development of sustainable fuels.
- The diversity of the airline’s workforce, with employees from 100 countries.
- A strong emphasis on reducing environmental impacts.
In recent years, Wizz Air has continuously reduced its carbon dioxide emissions, which are exceptionally low for the industry. The ambitious sustainability strategy also includes changes implemented on its 185 aircraft, such as transitioning to biodegradable utensils, using seats covered with synthetic leather, and replacing printed pilot manuals with electronic devices.[Unfortunately, the airline has not yet introduced a schedule that aligns with social sustainability, avoiding early morning departures and late-night arrivals – Editor’s note.]
As the aviation industry evolves, Wizz Air remains committed to its mission of providing exceptional service to travelers. The World Travel Award recognition symbolizes the dedication that the airline has towards its passengers and the environment.
