Wizz Air Kharkiv

Kharkiv Airport celebrated Wizz Air’s inaugural flight on its new route from Vienna on 25 November with this impressive cake. The 1,447-kilometre connection will be flown twice-weekly (Wednesdays and Sundays) facing no direct competition. The LCC will deploy A320s on this service between the Ukrainian and Austrian cities.

  • Wizz Air commenced operations on nine new routes between 20 and 26 November. It opened seven new services from Vienna (VIE) alone in the space of two days. The majority of routes will be flown twice-weekly, but the highest-frequency link, between Vienna and Dortmund (DTM), will operate six times weekly. The longest sector length among the new airport pairs is the 2,303-kilometre connection from Vienna to Lisbon (LIS). The shortest route is the 745-kilometre link from the Austrian capital to Dortmund. The average sector length across the nine new airport pairs is 1,417 kilometres. Five of the nine routes will face direct competition.
