Wizz Air launches eight new routes from five of its bases

Traditional Georgian specialities and entertainment awaited the 130 passengers departing on Wizz Air's inaugural flight from Katowice to Kutaisi – the airline's second route connecting Poland to the western Georgian destination.

Markus Klaushofer, Malta Airport's CEO; Daniel de Carvalho, Wizz Air's Corporate Communications Manager; Josef Formosa Gauci, CEO of Malta Tourism Authority; and Janos Barits, Wizz Air's Airport Development Manager, celebrated the airline's arrival on the Mediterranean island.

  • Wizz Air continued to increase the connectivity across its Eastern and South-Eastern European bases last week, as it launched a total of eight new routes in that period. Highlights include the addition of four new destinations from Bucharest (OTP), as well as the airline’s first ever flights to Malta (MLA). The carrier also strengthened its offering to Norway from Gdańsk (GDN) with the launch of a seventh destination in the country. Last but not least, Wizz Air inaugurated services on its second Polish route to Kutaisi (KUT) and now serves the Georgian city from both Warsaw and Katowice (KTW). All newly launched services are operated with low frequencies using the airline’s fleet of A320s.
