Wizz Air starts five more European services

The same day, the ULCC’s A320 landed for the first time at Poprad in northern Slovakia from London Luton. Interestingly, the city located at the foot of the High Tatra Mountains is Wizz Air’s 99th destination.

  • Wizz Air, which last month took delivery of a new A320, continued to expand its European network with five new additions during the course of last week. The Hungarian ULCC increased its Bucharest (OTP) offering as it added twice-weekly flights (Wednesdays and Sundays) to Basel (BSL) and Nuremberg (NUE). In addition, Wizz Air also commenced its second route from Sibiu (SBZ), after adding London Luton on 14 June. Noteworthy, the ULCC launched its third route from Szczecin (SZZ), this time to London Luton (LTN) with thrice-weekly services; while it is also serving Stavanger (four times weekly) and Oslo Torp (five times weekly) from the capital city of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship in Poland. Wizz Air will face no competition on any of the new routes. Commenting on the route launch from Sibiu, the airport’s GM, Marius Ioan Gîrdea, said: “We can only see this new progressive step of our cooperation with Wizz Air as the reassurance of our foreseen prospects for passenger volume increase and route expansion at Sibiu International Airport in the near future. Furthermore, the addition of this new European destination comes to meet the expectations and needs expressed by the community we serve and the combined efforts of Sibiu County Council and the airport management team towards developing the range of connections that our passengers can access.”
