Hungary airline Wizz Air has partnered with eSIM Go to allow Wizz Air passengers to buy and activate eSIMS to access mobile data services in more than 150 countries
The Wizz eSIM service is claimed to be the first offered by a European airline. It incorporates eSIM Go’s Powered by Breeze into the Wizz Air app and requires no technical involvement from the Wizz Air.
“Wizz Air has a reputation for getting to the market with innovative ancillary offers, which makes them the natural champion for easy access, low-cost, eSIM-enabled mobile data services,” said Zacchary Couldrick, CEO of eSIM Go.
“Travellers want mobile data and eSIM offers more convenience, choice and value than paying roaming charges or buying local SIM cards. The launch of Wizz eSIM is a testament to the flexibility and scale of our platform and the turnkey nature of the Powered by Breeze commercial model.”
Wizz Air will offer hundreds of data eSIM bundles in target destinations across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia where roaming charges for European travellers are highest.
“The aim is to connect customers with the best rates and services. ”eSIM Go’s solution allows us to serve passengers with competitive data packages, as well as catering to the growing demand of data access wherever they travel,” said Dora Farkas, Wizz Product Portfolio Manager
