Wizz Air To Restart 16 Flights From Budapest In May
Budapest-based low-cost airline Wizz Air is restarting 16 flights from Budapest early in May, while flights from Debrecen, eastern Hungary, are expected to resume in June, the airportal.hu website said.

Flights will be resumed from Budapest to Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Birmingham, Bazel, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Gothenburg, London-Gatwick, London-Luton, Liverpool, Madrid, Podgorica, Sarajevo, Stockholm, and Targu Mures, the website said.

The airline is calling on passengers to observe social distancing and complete as many tasks as possible online to minimise personal interaction and queues at airports, the website said.

The airline is expected to leave middle seats vacant on all aircraft, and Wizz Air flight attendants will wear gloves as well as face masks. Disinfectant wipes will be distributed to passengers and aircraft will be regularly disinfected.

Wizz Air is one of the first European airlines to resume operation after restrictions imposed due to the coronavirus epidemic. According to IATA figures, European air traffic has fallen by 90%.
