BUDGET airline Wizz Air is to resume flights from London Luton Airport on Friday (May 1).

The airline has also announced additional hygiene measures to ensure the health and safety of passengers and crew.

It is to implement new protocols in line with government regulations to support physical distancing during boarding and enhanced cleanliness on board.

Wizz Air managing director Owain Jones said: “As we restart selected Luton flights to provide an essential service to passengers who need to travel, our primary concern is the health, safety and well-being of our customers and crew. The protective measures that we are implementing will ensure the most sanitary conditions possible.”

The airline has produced a video outlining its health and safety measures. watch the video here.

Cabin crew will be required to wear masks and gloves and will distribute sanitising wipes to each passenger. Onboard purchases are encouraged to be made by contactless payment, to minimise physical contact.

Wizz Air will continue its stringent daily cleaning schedule, with the entire aircraft being disinfected overnight in line with official guidelines.

From May 1 and subject to no further restrictions being imposed, Wizz Air flights from London Luton will resume to:
