Wizz Air’s crew and de Carvalho were also welcomed to Malmö in southern Sweden, where airport director Peter Weinhandl presented the Wizz Air team with a gift.

  • Wizz Air launched six new routes in the last week; one from Ljubljana (LJU), Slovenia’s capital, and five from the launch of a base in Macedonia’s capital Skopje (SKP). Each of the routes is operated twice-weekly with the low-cost airline’s 180-seat A320s. John Stevenson, EVP Wizz Air, commented the base launch: “We are very happy that it is Skopje where today we open our 16th low-cost base. Since our announcement of the six new exciting destinations, the users from Macedonia and the countries with which we connect Skopje have gathered on our website to use the low-cost fares, and over 25.000 passengers have already booked their flights from Skopje to the new destinations.”
