Wizz Air launches six new routes and first flight under own Iata code

The airline’s twice-weekly Luton-Eilat (Israel) and daily Luton-Lisbon route services launched on Sunday (October 28).

Eilat fares lead in from £17.99, flying Sundays and Wednesdays, as do its Lisbon fares.

Wizz’s three-times weekly Doncaster-Sheffield to Budapest route launched on Monday (October 29) flying Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from £22.99.

Its new Liverpool-Romania services flying twice-weekly to Iasi and Cluj-Napoca (Mondays and Fridays) also launched on Monday, while its three-times weekly service to capital Bucharest (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) launched on Tuesday (October 30).

All Wizz’s new Romania flights lead in from £20.99.

The additions take Wizz’s total new UK services launched this year to 19.

Earlier this year, it launched its wholly owned UK-based and UK-licensed subsidiary Wizz Air UK which by the end of the year will operate five new Airbus A320 aircraft and four Airbus A321s.

Wizz Air UK was granted a UK route earlier this month, with its first flights under its own W9 Iata code taking off this week.

Owain Jones, managing director Wizz Air UK, said: “The new routes increase the many options to travel on one of Europe’s youngest and most efficient aircraft fleets to both vibrant international cities and genuinely undiscovered gems and we look forward to welcoming customers onboard to experience Wizz Air’s great service.”
