Wizz Air expands at three bases and adds Estonia to its network

Wizz Air Tallinn

Wizz Air marked Estonia on its route map on 26 June, the day which saw the ULCC begin a three times weekly service to Tallinn from Kiev Zhulyany. To mark the arrival, the Estonian capital airport baked this commemorative route launch cake. From 17 September, the airline will also offer a four times weekly service to London Luton from Tallinn.

Wizz Air Sibiu

Wizz Air celebrated the two-year anniversary of its base opening at Sibiu by stationing a second A320 at the Romanian airport. This investment has allowed the carrier to open four routes from the airport this week to Basel, Copenhagen, Frankfurt Hahn and Paris Beauvais, while a fifth to Tel Aviv will begin on 14 July.

Wizz Air Kiev

Further celebrations were held by Wizz Air at Kiev Zhulyany this week, with the ULCC toasting to 10 successful years of operation from the Eastern European country. This week also saw the carrier base a third aircraft at the Ukrainian capital airport, allowing it to open routes to Lisbon and Tallinn, while a service to Berlin Schönefeld will begin operation on 1 July. Finally, Wizz Air also launched a route from Katowice to Kharkiv in Ukraine on 20 June.

Wizz Air Memmingen

Wizz Air also had reason to celebrate at Memmingen Airport in Germany on 20 June, launching a four times weekly service from Katowice. Seen posing with the inaugural flight crew are Memmingen Airport’s Aviation Marketing & Sales Manager, Franziska Spannagel, and Director of Aviation, Marcel Schütz. The route faces no direct competition.

  • Wizz Air expanded operations from three of its bases this week, namely Katowice (KTW), Kiev Zhulyany (IEV) and Sibiu (SBZ) in Romania. One of the most significant launches was a 1,061-kilometre sector between the Ukrainian capital airport and Tallinn (TLL), marking the ULCC’s first operations to the Estonian capital. “We are happy that Wizz Air opens two destinations from Tallinn this year and brings along favourable ticket prices. We hope that the new operator will be well received, and next year we will see more destinations in the list of Wizz Air,” commented Eero Pärgmäe, Commercial Director, Tallinn Airport, of the new service from Kiev, plus the addition of London Luton, a route which begins on 17 September. In total Wizz Air has launched nine routes this week, with the average weekly frequency being 2.7, while the mean sector length is 1,593 kilometres.
