Wizz Air today celebrated the opening of its newest Hungarian base in Debrecen.
The airline is initially deploying one Airbus A320 aircraft to be based at Debrecen International Airport operating three new routes from Debrecen to Paris Beauvais, Brussels Charleroi and Malmo starting from 16 December.
Already served by Wizz Air flights, Debrecen becomes Wizz Air second Hungarian airport with base operations. The new aircraft increases the number of routes served from Debrecen to six and increases the annual seat capacity from the airport by 136% to 145,000 seats per year.
Wizz Air is not only adding new flights from Debrecen, but also increasing the frequencies on the existing services to London Luton and Eindhoven. The airline’s expansion in Hungary can stimulate the local job market in aviation and the tourism sector with more visitors now able to travel to East Hungary on its low fare services.
