Wizz Air’s summer peak capacity will be 5% lower than it had planned in April, the airline has said.
Wizz Air used a trading update ahead of its first-quarter 2023 results to say demand was strong for summer but seat availability would be down.
“To be able to avoid cancellations and secure a more punctual operation to our customers, we have further improved the agility and resilience of our network including adjusting schedules where we have seen a higher occurrence of issues (eg slot allocation issues, turn-around timings), Wizz Air said.
“In total for the peak summer period we expect to reduce utilisation a further 5% versus the plan outlined at the full year results to reduce the impact of ongoing external disruptions.”
The statement doesn’t say where additional capacity cuts will be made.
