Wizz Air reinstates pilot salaries to pre-pandemic levels

Wizz Air is reinstating pilot salaries to their pre-Covid-19 levels from 1 October 2021.

It says it will be one of the first airlines to end temporary pay cuts for pilots since the pandemic.

It comes as Wizz Air embarks on its largest ever recruitment drive for pilots and cabin crew.

The airline plans to hire an extra 200 pilots and 800 cabin crew members by December 2021.

Over the next ten years, Wizz Air is committed to creating thousands more jobs, as it plans to triple the size of its fleet to 500 Airbus aircraft.

Despite the challenges of the pandemic, it has added 18 new bases and over 300 new routes to its network since March 2020.

It is now flying over 100% of pre-Covid capacity on over 1,000 routes to 197 destinations.
