Wizz Air is a Hungarian ultra-low-cost carrier based in Budapest serving most European coutries as well as destinations in North Africa and the Middle East. Wizz Air Holdings is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is constituent of the FTSE 250 Index. Being very business development focused, Wizz Air is planning to hire 4,600 new pilots over the next 10 years, 300 of which will be added by December 2021. According to the airline‘s statement dated August 6, 2021, the company encourages both the experienced and inexperienced flight crew to join its Wizz Air Pilot Academy Program and earn the necessary license to be able to operate Airbus A320 and A321 narrow-body jets. 

The COO of the airline assured that once the new flight crew members join the Wizz Air‘s team, they would be offered a competitive salary and a benefits package, as well as a “flexible and fixed roster”, while the pilots will fly across the air carrier‘s network, consisting of 800 routes. In addition to flight crew, Wizz Air is also looking to recruit cabin crew members to meet its fleet and network expansion strategy. As air travel demand increased, Wizz Air took advantage of this and made a company revenue of almost €200 million, increasing the revenue by over 119% from the previous year.
