Wizz Air launches Brussels from Budapest

Wizz Air celebrates the launch of Budapest – Brussels, which will compete directly with LOT Polish and Brussels Airlines, and indirectly with Ryanair (and also another of its own services).

Wizz Air on 1 June launched Budapest – Brussels.

The 1,141-kilometre route will operate up to five-weekly this month, increasing to six-weekly in July. From 13 September, it’ll operate daily.

Speaking to anna.aero, Sonja Gehlen, Senior Aviation Development Manager at Brussels Airport, said: “We are delighted that Europe’s fastest-growing airline has launched flights to Brussels Airport. It also clearly marks the turn of tide, with traffic growth expected to recover week by week in June and July.”

Brussels is a new airport for Wizz Air.

Wizz Air third airline on airport-pair

Wizz Air is the third airline on Budapest – Brussels, joining Brussels Airlines and LOT Polish.  LOT also began this year. 

In all, these three are scheduled to have almost 154,000 seats to/from Brussels this year, up 17% YOY, with Wizz Air and LOT’s entrance offsetting Brussels Airlines’ decline.
