  • What is it?

    What is the WIZZ Youth Challenge?

    An international case study competition, in which students from across Europe are challenged to share innovative, out-of-the-box ideas that can support the future growth of Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline of Central and Eastern Europe and one of the fastest growing airlines in Europe, carrying over 28 million passengers in 2017.

    What's in it for me?

    The opportunity to test yourself by delivering a solution to a real-world business situation and to share your ideas with WIZZ. If your idea stands out, you will be invited to Budapest for the live event to present your idea to the WIZZ team, experts in the aviation sector who are passionately seeking for young talents. If you can then convince the jury and take home the first prize, you have the opportunity to travel for an entire year for free across the WIZZ network – to 145 destinations in 44 countries. It’s the perfect chance to expand your horizons, while sharing your journey with others as the official WIZZ Travel Reporters.
