Passenger numbers jump at Wizz Air

(Sharecast News) - Low-cost airline Wizz Air said on Friday that it saw passenger numbers jump in November.
A total of 3.68m passengers were booked onto Wizz Air flights last month, a 70% hike on November 2021.

Capacity was ahead nearly 47%, at 4.18m, while the load factor - a key industry metric - increased to 88.1% from 76.1%.

On a rolling 12-month basis, Wizz carried 44.12m passengers, a 123% jump, with a load factor of 86.1%, compared to 74.3% as at 30 November 2021.

The aviation sector has seen a surge in demand this year, after Covid-19 restrictions were removed and international travel picked up.

Wizz Air has also been expanding its network, including adding two aircraft to its base in Larnaca, Cyprus, which will now have four planes operating 32 routes to 18 countries.

Overall, London-listed Wizz has a 174-strong fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft.
