Wizz Air launches British airline at Luton to manage Brexit aftermath

 Friday, May 4, 2018 


 Wizz-Air-UKBudget air carrier Wizz Air has made sure that it would continue to fly after Brexit by launching a brand new UK airline with base at Luton Airport.


Wizz Air UK represents a £633 million investment for east European group. It would have eight brand-new Airbus aeroplanes in operation by the end of 2018 and directly employ as many as 300 people.


The airline said that obtaining a UK air operator’s certificate and operating license completed an essential part of its contingency plans for Brexit.


While Britain is a part of the European Union, airlines based outside the country are capable of operating without these certificates.


József Váradi, chief executive asserted that Wizz Air has been committed to the UK ever since their very first flight landed at London Luton in the year 2004 and their continued expansion would go a long way in leading to additional investment and jobs in the UK.


Its rival operator EasyJet has established an European airline based in Vienna to make sure that flights are not disrupted while Ryanair is applying for a certificate for a UK air operator.
