Wizz Air to Launch Three New City Bases

Wizz Air has recently announced plans to expand their flights and global destinations on offer. The Hungarian airline has announced flights to Bucharest, Tirana, and Kolozsvár. 

Bucharest, Romania

The flights operating from Bucharest are yet another expansion to Wizz Air’s operations in Romania and are one of two in this latest announcement. To adequately run from Bucharest, the airline will be adding a new aircraft to its base, the Airbus A321neo. The A321neo will join the fleet in July 2022 and will increase the amount of aircraft in Bucharest to 12. 

The airline also jointly announced the introduction of two new routes from Bucharest to Preveza, Greece, and Rimini, Italy. The airline first expanded into Italy in September 2020

Romanians can now travel from Bucharest to Preveza-Aktion airport in Greece on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 6 July. Flights from Bucharest to Rimini, Italy will take place on Thursdays and Sundays from 29 September. 

With this new route in mind, Wizz Air will now be offering 56 low fare services from Henri Coandă International Airport, Romania’s busiest airport. As the aviation industry shows signs of positive recovery to pre-COVID levels for the summer season, the two new routes connecting Romania to popular holiday destinations such as Greece and Italy are a positive way in which Wizz Air can take advantage of the holiday period.

Tirana, Albania

The so-called ultra-low-cost airline announced that its ninth aircraft will serve the Tirana base. The Airbus A321ceo will join its fleet, allowing for three new routes to start. These routes will be to Lyon, France, Nuremberg, Germany, and Warsaw, Poland. 

Wizz Air isn’t new to running in Albania as it first started operations in April 2017. But now, Wizz Air offers 41 routes to 14 countries from Albania via Tirana.

Kolozsvár (Cluj-Napoca), Romania

Another of Wizz Air’s Airbus A321ceo aircraft will join its base in Cluj-Napoca from 2 August. This move will increase the airline’s number of aircraft in Kolozsár to seven. It also allows for three new routes from Kolozsár to start, allowing Romanians to travel to Corfu, Greece, Naples, and Turin, Italy. Flights to the island of Corfu will depart on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and the routes to Naples and Turin will operate on Wednesdays and Sundays from 3 August. 

These will be offered via ultra-low fares and the flights will take off at Avram Iancu Cluj International Airport.

By owning a total of seven aircraft at Kolozsár, Wizz Air dominates the Romanian aviation market as the largest airline operating from Kolozsár. 

Wizz Air, operating as an ultra-low-cost airline, has identified what attracts customers to book with them. This series of announcements only confirms their commitment to offering potential customers affordable fares to a host of exciting and attractive destinations across the globe. 

The airline has plans to continue expanding its network of operations to take full advantage of the aviation industry finally bouncing back post-pandemic, especially over the hectic summer period.
