Wizz Air announces new base, seven new routes in Kutaisi

Wizz Air will begin base operations in September at David the Builder Kutaisi International Airport with one A320 aircraft and add seven new routes to Europe.

Wizz Air will launch new twice-weekly service from Kutaisi to Berlin Schönefeld, Munich Memmingen, Milan Bergamo, Dortmund, Larnaca and Sofia, while flights between Kutaisi and Thessaloniki will be flown three times a week. With these new destinations, Wizz Air’s network from Georgia consists of 11 routes to eight countries. Fares start at EUR 24.99.

Kutaisi is the second-largest city in Georgia. Wizz Air began operations in Kutaisi in 2012 and has carried more than 500,000 passengers in that time.

Owain Jones, Wizz Air Chief Corporate Officer said: “Wizz Air believes investment in Georgia with an Airbus A320 aircraft and with a locally recruited base crew will pay economic dividends for business in Georgia and for Wizz Air. We know the importance of affordable air travel for a region’s economic development which has been a by-product of WIZZ operations in all our base cities. Opening a base here underlines our commitment to providing the people of Georgia with high quality, low-fare service to more and more cities throughout Europe.”
