Wizz Air bases second aircraft at Iasi

Wizz Air Iasi

A press conference was held at Iasi Airport this week to talk about Wizz Air basing its second A320 and the opening of new routes to Billund, Brussels Charleroi, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Malmö, Paris Beauvais and Thessaloniki. Present to take part in the media briefing were: Cătălin Bulgariu, Director, Iasi Airport; Maricel Popa, President of Iasi County Council; and Sorina Ratz, Acting Head of Corporate Communications, Wizz Air. The airline now has two A320s based at Iasi.

  • Wizz Air has increased its capacity from Iasi (IAS) in Romania by basing a second aircraft at the airport, allowing it to open new routes to Billund (BLL), Brussels Charleroi (CRL), Dortmund (DTM), Eindhoven (EIN), Malmö (MMX), Paris Beauvais (BVA) and Thessaloniki (SKG). The expansion means that Wizz Air now serves a total of 15 destinations from Iasi this summer.  Along with these new services, the carrier has expanded from Bucharest (OTP) and Vienna (VIE) this week. The ULCC inaugurated a three times weekly link from the Romanian capital to Kutaisi (KUT), while the Austrian capital is now linked with Malaga (AGP), a route that will also be flown three times weekly. Most of the routes launched by Wizz Air this week will be flown using its A320s, however one of the three weekly rotations between Bucharest and Kutaisi will see an A321 operation based on OAG schedules. The average sector length of the nine routes is 1,562 kilometres. See how Iasi Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world
