Donauinselfest: Probably the lowest “Wizz Air flight”

With a "flight altitude" of just 45 meters, the low-cost airline Wizz Air is offering what is probably the lowest "flight" at the Donauinselfest. The company is sponsoring the event this year and has a small attraction in store.

Take a cable car gondola made by Carvatech, hang it on a crane and you have an attraction for visitors to the Danube Island Festival. They are then pulled up to a height of around 45 meters, where they can admire an excellent view of the Vienna skyline and the Danube Island. Because the floor of the cable car gondola is also made of glass, the Wizz Air stand can also be seen from a bird's eye view.

The budget airline obviously wants to draw attention to itself with this unusual attraction in order to gain additional customers. In any case, there are no competitors at the event. Use of the gondola is free during the opening hours of the Wizz Air stand. This is located in the immediate vicinity of the Brigittenau Bridge on the Danube Island in the Austrian capital Vienna.

Below are some impressions from what is probably the lowest “Wizz Air flight”.

    Was the flight only with small hand luggage and without catering? 😜
