After resuming Moscow flights, Wizz try to buy Ukrainian forgiveness with free tickets

Wizz Air is providing 100,000 more free tickets for Ukrainian citizens on all continental European and UK flights.

The free flights are being offered for travel between September 15 and December 8 across the Wizz Air Hungary and Wizz Air UK networks. Wizz Air Abu Dhabi, who have resumed flights to Russia, have decided not to take part.

The offer covers 800 routes and follows initial offers of free tickets to help Ukrainian refugees fly to the UK and other EU countries following the Russian invasion in late February.

The new initiative is designed to help Ukrainians travel throughout Europe.

Travellers will be required to provide their Ukrainian passport number at the time of booking. They will also be asked to show their passport and required visa/travel documents during check-in.

The budget airline’s chief executive Jozsef Varadi, said: “Wizz Air is Ukraine’s home town airline and we are here to continue to support in any way we can during these difficult times. 

“Our aim is to alleviate the hardships of Ukrainian citizens.”

Just days ago, the airline resumed flights to Moscow, resulting in many Ukrainians calling for a boycott of the airline that before February 24th had 7% of it’s capacity dedicated to routes to/from Ukraine and still has aircraft trapped in the country.
