  • Wizz Air, which during the course of last week commenced five new routes, continued to grow its European network with eight new links, all of which are served twice-weekly by its 180-seat A320s. With the longest route being the 1,485-kilometre service from Chisinau (KIV) to Milan/Bergamo (BGY) added on 3 November, and the shortest being inaugurated on 1 November from Timisoara (TSR) to Bari (BRI), the Hungarian ULCC will face no competition on any of the eight new additions. Noteworthy is the fact that the service to Bergamo, is the airline’s third route from Chisinau, as it already flies thrice-weekly to Rome Ciampino and Venice Treviso. Commenting on the new route launch from Katowice (KTW) to Maastricht Aachen (MST), Artur Tomasik, President of GTL, Katowice, said: “Wizz Air has been present at Katowice Airport for the last 10 years and it is where they launched their operations in Poland. Katowice is also one of its biggest bases. Throughout the years, the carrier has opened numerous, amazing routes and today’s inauguration is just another enrichment. Our fruitful and long-term cooperation gives hopes to further development of route network from Katowice.” In addition, Stijn Vandermoere, Head of Network and Scheduling, Wizz Air, added on 28 October at Maastricht Aachen: “This is a great day for both Wizz Air and Maastricht Aachen. We now fly from three Dutch airports to nine different countries and after carrying three million passengers on our Dutch routes it is a pleasure to add Maastricht Aachen to the growing number of Wizz Air’s destinations. We look forward to carrying many passengers on our new Katowice route and hope that Dutch consumers quickly embrace our low fares and friendly service.”
