Wizz Air CEO, Józef Váradi, said, “We are proud to be in this prestigious industry-leading position which confirms Wizz Air’s sustainability efforts. Having been recognised as the most sustainable European airline reassures our steps in this direction and gives us extra energy to keep on developing our airline.”
