Wizz Air today announced that it will double its Georgian operations, adding a second Airbus A320 aircraft at its Kutaisi base in May 2018.
At the same time, Wizz Air will launch four routes from Kutaisi to Prague (Czech Republic), Barcelona (Spain), Paris Beauvais (France) and Rome Fiumicino (Italy). Together with the new connections, some of the most popular services from Kutaisi to Berlin Schönefeld and Dortmund, will have increased weekly frequencies – adding a total of 12 incremental flights to 2018 summer schedule from Georgia.
As the pioneer of lowest-cost air travel, Wizz Air is constantly expanding its Georgian network since 2012 and brings affordable travel opportunities between Georgia and the rest of Europe. After only 1 year of operating its Kutaisi base that was opened in September 2016 Wizz Air has achieved remarkable results as the number of passengers almost tripled in the past 12 months compared to the same period of the previous year.
Speaking at a press conference in Kutaisi, George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer at Wizz Air said:
“Today we bring more exciting news for all our customers in Georgia, and once more underline Wizz Air’s commitment to the country. We are delighted that one year after the Kutaisi base opening, our traffic numbers have tripled and we continue our expansion announcing the addition of a second based Airbus A320 in May 2018. Our investment is bringing benefits to the local community by creating direct local jobs and stimulating the job market in aviation and related industries, as well as boosting business links other European countries.”
