“The plan is to grow three times in just nine years and it is not just a dream, this is one of the KPIs that we have to deliver. For our recruitment team it means that we have to recruit one person every hour, which represents our goal of 2,000 new hires per year,” said Ewa Danecka-Latka, Head of Crew Resources of Wizz Air.

“As we need a lot of new pilots and a lot of new cabin crew members joining our operations, this is what we are preparing ourselves for,” Danecka-Latka added. “Currently we have 42 bases all over the world and they are located in 18 countries. So, there is a huge number of locations that a pilot or a cabin crew member can be assigned.”

The airline previously announced it is expanding fleet with the addition of 500 aircraft by the end of the decade.
