Wizz Air sets 2030 sustainability targets

Wizz Air announce its new aspiration to power 10% of its flights with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.

This new target marks a significant step in Wizz Air’s sustainability strategy, and builds on its ongoing investments in SAF development. To achieve the new goal, the airline is also calling for wider industry action to boost SAF production, urging policymakers to address current barriers to SAF deployment at scale.

The new aspiration further strengthens Wizz Air’s position as an industry leader in sustainability and will drive its commitment to reducing its carbon emissions per passenger/km by 25% by 2030. The airline will continue to pursue wider sustainability initiatives, including its ambitious fleet renewal plan and efficient, low-fare operations. The airline uses the latest technology aircraft, and prioritises high seat density and load factors to ensure its current operations are as sustainable as possible.

Wizz Air leads the aviation industry with the lowest carbon emission per passenger/km among its competitors and remains committed to significantly reducing its CO2 intensity by 2030. In 2023, Wizz Air achieved its record low annual average CO2 intensity result, which amounted to 51.5 grams per passenger/km, a 6.8% reduction year-on-year.
