This tri-country owned budget airline offers big discounts for those not needing the extra leg room

WizzairA recent addition to the value-oriented airlines. A jointly owned Hungarian and Polish company formed this company just over 1 year ago with a fresh fleet of Airbus A320’s they claim to be the largest in Central Europe. I’d also add that they have possibly the largest number of seats ever squeezed into an A320 providing good leg room only for those under 5ft 6in . That said, the cabin crew are pleasant and upbeat taking the lead from airlines like Virgin. Food and drink are well priced and they even offer specials on certain combinations. Flights are up to 4 times a week from Luton only but at very reasonable times. Their web site is good and offers pricing around your requested dates. Pricing per ticket is competitive but watch out for the additional charges which can be over £20 per airport. A reasonable off peak return should come in at between £75 and £100. Have been known to offer great discounts occasionally including ones that drop the taxes as well.
