Wizz Air adds routes from Budapest, Gdansk, Lviv and Warsaw
- Europe’s now sixth biggest LCC Wizz Air (it was overtaken last year by Pegasus) has introduced seven new routes during the last week. Three of the routes are between Poland and Norway with Gdansk (GDN) getting new connections to Haugesund (HAU) and Trondheim (TRD), and Warsaw (WAW) getting a service to Stavanger (SVG). Norwegian competes on the Stavanger route with twice-weekly operations. Wizz Air is also resuming flights from Lviv (LWO) in the Ukraine, with the re-launch of flights to Dortmund (DTM) and Venice Treviso (TSF). This follows the completion of runway reconstruction works at the airport. According to Sergii Dementiev, Director General of Wizz Air Ukraine, “Lviv is expecting a sharp increase in the number of foreign visitors in 2012, starting with the EURO 2012 Football Championships, so modernization of the airport infrastructure, resulting in an improved travel experience, is well-timed. The reintroduction of these popular German and Italian destinations will also create a truly affordable and convenient travel opportunity for many Ukrainians working abroad or travelling for business or leisure purposes.” Another route resumption for Wizz Air is between Budapest (BUD) and Warsaw, which the airline operated between December 2005 and March 2008. LOT Polish Airlines provides competition with double-daily flights. Finally, Thessaloniki (SKG) in Greece returns to the airline’s network. During April, there will be two weekly flights from Budapest with services then resuming once more between 22 June and 14 September.
