Wizz Air Adds 10 New Routes from Budapest

Responding to the closure of Malev, Wizz Air will bring a sixth aircraft to its base in Budapest and will open 10 new routes in the coming months, bringing the total to 33 destinations served, increasing capacity to over 2.5 million seats a year.

The sixth in a series of recently announced additional aircraft will begin operating in April, with new routes to Malaga (Spain), Bucharest and Cluj (Romania), Warsaw (Poland), Sofia (Bulgaria), Larnaca (Cyprus), and Heraklion, Zakynthos, Rhodes, Thessaloniki (Greece). Wizz Air is also offering 2,500 seats on sale now for HUF 2500 (approximately €9).

Wizz Air also aims to start services to non-EU markets such as Tel Aviv, Kiev, Moscow, and Istanbul, subject to designation and regulatory approval.

In light of the airline’s growth in Budapest, Wizz Air is recruiting 100 additional local staff, bringing its total employee count close to 400 in Hungary. In addition, approximately 2,000 jobs have been created in service industries that support Wizz Air’s operation.

“Wizz Air has a long history of successful operations in Hungary and this further expansion demonstrates our continuing commitment. Over the past eight years we have earned the trust and loyalty of our passengers and now even more consumers will benefit from our low fares and efficient service.” said József Váradi, Chief Executive.
