Wizz Air today celebrated the opening of its newest Romanian base in Craiova.
The airline is initially deploying one Airbus A320 aircraft to be based at Craiova airport operating 4 new routes from Craiova to Barcelona, Bologna, Dortmund and Rome Ciampino starting from 23 July.
Wizz Air is not only adding new flights from Craiova, but also increasing the frequencies on the existing services to London Luton and Milan Bergamo. Wizz Air is now offering 6 routes to 4 different countries from its new Romanian base. The airline’s expansion in Romania can stimulate the local job market in aviation and the tourism sector with more visitors now able to travel to Dolj County on its low fare services.
Welcoming the arrival of the new Airbus A320 in Craiova today, Wizz Air’s Daniel de Carvalho, said: “The opening of our 5th base in Romania and 18th base overall is truly delightful news. This is an important milestone for our presence in the Dolj County and indicates our commitment to offer Romanian consumers and their visitors affordable fares, coupled with an excellent travel experience. Our brand new based Airbus A320 will further enhance the travel opportunities on the Romanian market and we look forward to many satisfied passengers and a fruitful partnership with Craiova Airport.”
