Wizz Air’s third route from Brno is to Eindhoven
- Wizz Air launched its second new route in December involving Eindhoven (EIN) in the Netherlands. Last week, the low-cost airline won Cake of the Week for its new route from Riga, while this week (16 December) has seen the introduction of twice-weekly flights from Brno (BRQ) in the Czech Republic. This becomes the airline’s 12th route from the Dutch airport and only the third to Brno, after London Luton (launched December 2010) and Rome Fiumicino (launched March 2011). The Eindhoven route is operated on Mondays and Fridays using 180-seat A320s. Brno is the second-busiest airport in the Czech Republic, handling almost 400,000 passengers in 2010. The airport’s busiest year (to date) was in 2008 when just over half a million passengers passed through the airport.
