Wizz Air is supporting Ukrainian refugees by giving them 100,000 free seats on all of the carrier’s continental Europe flights that depart from Ukraine’s border countries – Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania.
Ukrainian refugees can book the flights by visiting https://wizzair.com/#/rescue. Wizz Air says it is committed to helping the refugees reach their final destinations and has already added larger aircraft and extra flights from border countries to Europe.
The airline also recognises that many refugees have already started moving and may be stranded in other locations, so it will also offer a €29.99 rescue fare on all other flights (excluding the UAE, Iceland and the Canaries), as well as a €69.99 rescue fare on all flights to the UAE, Iceland and the Canaries.
The free seats and the rescue fares will be available for travel throughout March and passengers are required to provide their Ukrainian passport/ID card number at time of booking and show their Ukrainian passport/ID card at time of check-in.
József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air, said: “Our hearts are with the Ukrainian people during this crisis. We are committed to helping as many Ukrainian refugees as possible to get to a safe place, which is why we will be offering them 100,000 free seats from the border countries and special rescue fares on all other flights. We have already seen great humanitarian efforts on the ground by our people across the network, and as a company we wanted to play our part in these efforts. We would be happy to provide a safe and welcoming journey for these refugees.”
