- Wizz Air has expanded its presence in Iceland by launching two routes to Reykjavik/Keflavik (KEF) this week, with the Icelandic capital now being connected by the carrier to Prague (PRG) and Wroclaw (WRO). On 31 May the carrier launched twice-weekly flights from both destinations, with services from Prague operating on Wednesdays and Sunday, while Wroclaw rotations will occur on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The 2,651-kilometre link from the Czech Republic, and 2,691-kilometre route from Poland will both be served by the ULCC’s fleet of 180-seat A320s. Wizz Air will not face any direct competition on services from Wroclaw. However, the city pairing between Prague and Reykjavik/Keflavik will go head-to-head with Czech Airlines, with it having launched twice-weekly flights on the route the following day (1 June). With these latest launches, Wizz Air now serves Iceland from seven destinations on 14 weekly flights, with Prague and Wroclaw joining Budapest, Gdansk, Katowice, Vilnius and Warsaw Chopin.
