Low-fare Hungarian carrier Wizz Air is offering Ukrainian refugees 100,000 free seats on flights in continental Europe departing from Hungary, Poland, Slovakia or Romania in March, the company told MTI on Wednesday.
“Wizz Air is committed to helping the refugees reach their final destinations, wherever that may be,” the airline said.
“Wizz Air has already added larger planes and extra flights from border countries to Europe to help support the movement of refugees as necessary,” it added.
Wizz Air acknowledged that many refugees have already started moving and may be stranded in other locations, so it is offering them a 29.99 euro “rescue fare” on all other flights, excluding those to the UAE, Iceland and the Canaries.
Ukrainian refugees may book the flights by visiting the website https://wizzair.com/#/rescue
Passengers will be required to provide their Ukrainian passport or ID card number when booking and at check-in.
