31-Aug-2009 Wizz Air, the largest low fare – low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe announced today that it would provide re-routing alternatives to passengers affected by the suspension of SkyEurope’s operations at Prague airport as communicated to the public earlier today.

This comes only 16 days after SkyEurope was stopped from flying from Vienna airport.

John Stephenson, Executive Vice- President of Wizz Air said: ‘This was certainly to be expected. The event underlines the critical importance of strong cost control and strong liquidity position, especially in times of financial crisis. Wizz Air has the track record of rescuing passengers left stranded by failing carriers and here we are again to restore customer trust in low cost air travel.’
