On 11 March, Wizz Air commenced services from Budapest to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden and Nice, both new stations on the ULCC’s network and also unserved routes from the Hungarian capital. Budapest Airport celebrated the launch of services to the latter destination with a sports shoe-styled cake. Tucking into a medal along with the inaugural crew is Budapest Airport’s Head of Airline Development, Balázs Bogáts. Both routes will operate on Mondays and Fridays.
Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden celebrated the arrival of its latest carrier, Wizz Air, with a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony, while passengers on the first flight were handed airport branded lanyards and individual cupcakes. Flights from Budapest will operate twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays. A further two Wizz Air routes will launch later this month from the German facility to Belgrade and Tirgu Mures.
- Wizz Air on 11 March commenced two new connections from Budapest (BUD) to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden (FKB) and Nice (NCE), both of which are new stations on the Wizz Air network. The 842- and 1,825-kilometre sectors will be served by the ULCC twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays, with neither route facing direct competition. Commenting on the launch of services to Nice from Budapest, Kam Jandu, CCO, Budapest Airport, said: “It’s always a great pleasure to celebrate the start of new routes with our largest carrier. There has been clear demand for more connections between Budapest and more regions of France. By welcoming Wizz Air’s service to Nice we are strengthening our network range within the country, which can only build upon the exceptional yearly growth we have been experiencing.” Wizz Air’s new routes to Germany and France will be flown by its fleet of A320s. Wizz Air will further expand its network from Budapest in March by opening connections to Liverpool, Malta, Reykjavik/Keflavik and Baku before month end, with all three currently scheduled to be served twice-weekly. Further routes from Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden will also be added later this month to Belgrade and Tirgu Mures. See how Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
