Hungarian owned low-cost carrier Wizz Air has announced that it plans to resume operations from London Luton (LTN/EGGW) Airport from 1st May.

The airline has said that it will restart a limited program to destinations in Israel, Hungary, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia and Spain with enhanced safety and distancing measures in place.

Cabin crew will all wear masks and gloves and sanitising wipes will be given to passengers.

The aircraft themselves will be disinfected at the end of each days flying.

London Luton Airport is the base for Wizz Air’s subsidiary, Wizz Air UK (W9/WUK).

In a statement, Wizz Air UK’s managing director Owain Jones said: “As we restart selected Luton flights to provide an essential service to passengers who need to travel, our primary concern is the health, safety and well-being of our customers and crew.

“The protective measures that we are implementing will ensure the most sanitary conditions possible.

“We encourage our customers to watch our new video on how to stay safe when travelling, as well as for more details on our new health and safety measures.”

Passengers will also be asked to make payments onboard, a large source of revenue for low-cost carriers, via contactless payments.
