Wizz Air expands network from London Luton Airport

Wizz AirWizz Air has increased its routing options at London Luton Airport with the permanent redeployment of an Airbus A320. Basing the new aircraft at the UK airport has allowed it to launch three new routes as well as increase frequencies on existing ones.

The Hungarian low-cost carrier has upped flight schedules from Luton to the Romanian city of Iasi so that services now operate every day. Flights to Constanta and Suceava, also both in Romania, now operate more regularly.

The Luton-based A320 has enabled Wizz to inaugurate routes to Kutaisi in Georgia, Pristina in Kosovo and the Israeli capital city of Tel Aviv. The three additions bring the number of Wizz routes from Luton to more than 40.

Luton Airport was officially inaugurated as a Wizz base on the 18 June. The auspicious date marked 13 years since Wizz first flew to the airport. Commenting on the new phase in the airline’s evolution, chief corporate officer Owain Jones said all staff were delighted to be enhancing the UK operation.

He carried on by saying 30 million passengers had so far flown Wizz from Luton. He noted that the flights had been a boon for the local economy and reinforced business and tourism ties between the UK and Eastern Europe. The latest stage in Wizz’s UK development has generated 30 more jobs.

The extra flights mean Wizz will have had 25 per cent more seat availability from Luton by the end of 2017. The total seat capacity will be 6.3 million. Last year, five million passengers flew Wizz from Luton.
