Wizz Air Holdings PLC said Wednesday that it carried more passengers in February than in the same month a year earlier.

The Central and Eastern European low-cost airline said it carried 1.9 million passengers in February compared with 382,928 in the same month of 2021.

For the rolling 12-month period, Wizz Air carried 25.0 million passengers, up from 11.5 million a year before, it said.
