Wizz Air starts Berlin and Birmingham services

Wizz Air commences Berlin and Birmingham routes

Celebrating the first flight of Wizz Air from Berlin Schönefeld to Skopje are Andreas Ley, Airline Marketing, Berlin Brandenburg Airport (second from left), and Gabor Vasarhelyi, Communications Manager, Wizz Air (centre). Services will operate twice-weekly between the two cities.

  • Wizz Air commenced two routes this week. The first was between Wroclaw (WRO) and Birmingham (BHX). Launched on 18 March, the twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service will face no direct competition. The latest launch from Birmingham means that Wizz Air serves four routes from the UK’s second city, joining the carrier’s current routes to Budapest, Poznan and Warsaw Chopin. The second city pair launched this week was from Skopje (SKP) to Berlin Schönefeld (SXF) on 21 March, marking the carrier’s first services from the German capital. In its first week of operation this route will be flown on Monday and Thursday. However, from its second week of operation flights move to Tuesdays and Saturdays. It too will face no direct competition. Both 1,284- and 1,307-kilometre sectors will be served by the carrier’s fleet of A320s. Commenting on the launch of Wizz Air’s services from Schönefeld, Gabor Vasarhelyi, Communications Manager of Wizz Air, said: “We are very pleased to make Berlin the latest European capital on Wizz Air’s growing network. By launching Berlin, we now serve nine airports in Germany.” The carrier will add two more routes from Schönefeld later this year to Cluj-Napoca and Kutaisi. Next week Wizz Air will add its fifth route from Birmingham, this time to Sofia, while a sixth route will commence in May to Bucharest.
