Wizz Air today announced that it will open its 23rd base on 1 July in Iasi (Romania) with one new Airbus A320.
Already served by Wizz Air flights, Iasi will be airline’s sixth Romanian airport with base operations.
The new aircraft will increase the number of routes served from Iasi to eight and will triple the seat capacity to 265,000 in 2016. The airline hopes this will stimulate the local job market in aviation and tourism sectors as consumers will have access to more low cost routes.
Wizz Air will operate five new routes from its Iasi base to Bologna, Catania, Larnaca, Rome Ciampino and Tel Aviv starting 1 July, all initially operating with two weekly flights except for Iasi-Bologna service that will be operated with three flights per week. Frequencies on its existing popular Iasi services to London Luton and Milan Bergamo will also be increased.
Wizz Air now offers a total of 106 Romanian routes to 16 countries from eight Romanian airports.
