Wizz Air launches first phase of Vienna-based operations

Wizz Air Vienna to Bari, Malta, Rome Fiumicino, Tel Aviv and Valencia 

Wizz Air opened its Vienna base on 14 June, stationing its first A320 in the Austrian capital. The airline will add four A321s to its newest base in November, meaning five aircraft will be stationed there for Winter. Among those at the base launch, officially cutting the ribbon to open the route, were: George Michalopoulos, CCO Wizz Air; Michael Ludwig, Major of Vienna; and Julian Jäger, COO Vienna airport. A creative cake was also made to toast the base opening.

  • Wizz Air launched the first part of its based operations at Vienna (VIE) on 14 June, having started service to the Austrian capital from 27 April with flights from Gdansk, Tuzla and Varna, while flights from Cluj-Napoca launched a few weeks ago. Initially the ULCC will station one A320 in Vienna, with it operating five new routes to Bari (BRI), Malta (MLA), Rome Fiumicino (FCO), Tel Aviv (TEL) and Valencia (VLC). The next route launch will take place on 2 July, a link to Eindhoven. From November a further four A321s will be stationed at the airport, with 20 more routes scheduled to be launched during the course of the W18/19 season. Overall it means that for S19, Wizz Air is currently set to offer 30 routes from Vienna. Along with the stationing of an A320 in Vienna, the carrier has also expanded from three other bases this week, adding new routes from Katowice (KTW), Tuzla (TZL) and Warsaw Chopin (WAW).
