Wizz air A321neo

Wizz Air has operated its first green demonstration flight.  The Airbus A321neo flight used a 14.2% blend of SAF, which resulted in 12.8% reduction of CO2 emissions, and there were also green initiatives onboard.

Wizz Air says it has been recognised as a leading airline in sustainable travel and is continuously improving its sustainability rating over the years. Underpinning its commitment to sustainability and highlighting the main reasons why it is the greenest choice for flying, Wizz Air launched its ‘Fly the Greenest’ campaign in the beginning of 2022.

Johan Eidhagen, Chief People and ESG Officer at Wizz Air, said: “Wizz Air is the fastest growing airline in Europe and has an ambitious growth strategy, with plans to expand our fleet and team of dedicated pilots and crew members. We strive to continue to deliver affordable travel for all, in the most sustainable way.

“We operated our first green demonstration flight from Bucharest to Lyon, in anticipation of the EU’s “Connecting Europe Days” sustainable mobility conference. This inaugural flight reflects our commitment to a greener future for the aviation sector. I would like to thank all of my colleagues who have been working hard to make Wizz Air one of Europe’s most sustainable airlines and all of the passengers that choose to fly the greenest each day!”
