Wizz Air today celebrates the major milestone of opening its 26th base in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova.
The airline has based one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft at Chisinau Airport, operating seven low-fare routes, including the two new services to Berlin and Barcelona.
The new aircraft allocated today will support the operations of the new routes, long-awaited by Chisinau travelers, to Berlin and Barcelona, each with two weekly services, and will allow Wizz Air to increase the number of weekly flights on the existing routes from Chisinau to Bologna and Venice.
Wizz Air started operating flights from Chisinau in September 2013, being the pioneer of high quality, lowest fares air travel in the Moldova market, gradually growing the low-fare network from Moldova and providing more opportunities for truly affordable air travel. Over the past 4 years, Wizz Air carried 500,000 passengers on Chisinau routes, underlining its commitment to the country, stimulating local tourism and aviation industries and strengthening business relations between countries.
Speaking at a press conference in Chisinau, Tamara Vallois, Head of Communications of Wizz Air, said:
“We are proud to celebrate the opening of the 26th Wizz Air base in the Republic of Moldova. Our new base operations at Chisinau Airport have created a number of local jobs with Wizz Air and our business partners while bringing even more opportunities to Moldova with a greater choice of 7 popular routes to 4 countries from Chisinau. We’re committed to providing our Moldovan customers with even more opportunities to travel in Europe on Wizz’s low fares through our fruitful cooperation with Chisinau Airport.“
“Today we are witnessing an important event in the development of Chisinau Airport. Wizz Air base opening at Chisinau demonstrates once again that our airport becomes more important in the aviation industry. An operational base means more flights to various European cities, which will stimulate the local job market in aviation and tourism. Avia Invest is looking forward to further expand its offer with more low-fare routes from Chisinau airport.” said general manager of Chisinau airport, Petru Jardan.
