Wizz Air welcomes five new routes from Sofia

The fifth A320 to be based in Sofia has enabled Wizz Air to increase its network from 17 to 22 routes. Celebrations on 26 and 27 July included a soft cocktail party, while passengers were given branded eye shades and chocolates to remember their first flight.

Memmingen Wizz

In Memmingen the arrival of Wizz Air’s first flight from Sofia on 26 July was celebrated with the traditional heart-shaped cake. This brings to seven the number of destinations served by Wizz Air from the southern German airport.

Wizz Cologne

A rather wet Cologne Bonn Airport welcomed Wizz Air’s inaugural flight from Sofia on Monday 27 July with this apron celebration. Wizz Air now serves Cologne Bonn from six airports, the others being Cluj-Napoca, Gdansk, Katowice, Kiev Zhulyany and Skopje.

Geneva Airport on 27 July welcomed its third Wizz Air service with the introduction of twice-weekly flights to Sofia. Wizz Air already serves the Swiss airport from Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca.

  • Wizz Air has added five new routes to its Sofia (SOF) network thanks to the arrival of a fifth A320 to be based at the Bulgarian capital. Twice-weekly flights were launched to Bari (BRI), Cologne Bonn (CGN), Geneva (GVA), Memmingen (FMM) and Naples (NAP) on either 26 or 27 July. The airline faces no competition on any of these routes. This brings to 22 the number of destinations now served by Wizz Air from Sofia. The 89 weekly departures now operated by Wizz Air from Sofia means the Bulgarian capital is currently the airline’s seventh busiest airport after London Luton (297 weekly departures), Budapest (217), Gdansk (139), Bucharest (137), Warsaw (112) and Katowice (108).
