Wizz Air creates new Romania base

Wizz Air will open its 23rd base on 1 July 2016 in Iasi (Romania) with one Airbus A320.

Already served by Wizz Air flights, Iasi will be Wizz Air’s sixth Romanian airport with base operations. The aircraft will increase the number of routes served from Iasi to eight and will triple the seat capacity to 265,000 in 2016. The airline hopes this will stimulate the local job market in aviation and tourism sectors as consumers will have access to more low cost routes.

Wizz Air will operate five new routes from its Iasi base to Bologna, Catania, Larnaca, Rome Ciampino and Tel Aviv starting 1 July 2016, all initially operating with two weekly flights except for Iasi-Bologna service that will be operated with three flights per week. Frequencies on its existing popular Iasi services to London Luton and Milan Bergamo will also be increased.

Speaking at a Press Conference in Iasi, György Abrán, Chief Commercial Office of Wizz Air said: “The first Wizz Air flight took off from Romania in 2007 and over the past 8 years, we have earned the trust and loyalty of our Romanian customers. We have constantly expanded our operations in Romania, developed regional airports, and today’s announcement once again underlines our commitment to the country. We put Iasi on the map of aviation a year ago and it will now become the sixth Romanian airport where we establish base operations. The new base will create a number of local jobs with Wizz Air and our local business partners while allowing us to bring more low fare routes to Romania. We look forward to welcoming our Romanian passengers on board, who and whose visitors can now enjoy our friendly services and low fares on 106 routes to 47 exciting WIZZ destinations.”
