WizzAir steps in to help SkyEurope passengers

Wizz Air will offer flights to passengers affected by the suspension of SkyEurope at Vienna Airport

European cheap flights carrier Wizz Air will offer flights to passengers affected by the suspension of SkyEurope at Vienna Airport.

The airline announced on Friday (August 14th) that it would be providing re-routing alternatives to SkyEurope customers due to fly from the Austrian capital.

Vienna Airport stopped servicing Slovakia-based SkyEurope on Saturday morning after the carrier was unable to pay its outstanding debt.

SkyEurope passengers due to fly from Vienna between August 15th and 30th are eligible for EUR 30 flight tickets on Wizz Air, with passengers requiring a confirmation number and a printed copy of their itinerary when checking-in.

Since its founding in 2002, SkyEurope has grown to become one of the continent’s most popular cheap flights carriers, transporting more than 3.7 million passengers each year.

Despite its route to Vienna ceasing, the airline still offers flights to Prague, Kosice and Poprad/Tatry from Bratislava.

Wizz Air recently announced that it would be launching new flights to Catania and Bologna from Bucharest on September 21st and October 28th respectively.
