Wizz Air has announced its intention to launch new cheap flights from its Budapest base thanks to the basing of a fourth Airbus A320 in the Hungarian capital.
The aircraft will move to its new base on July 24th, which will allow the airline to offer three cheap flights to London Luton a day – an improvement from the existing two daily services.
Additional flights will also operate on Wizz Air’s routes to Malmo-Copenhagen, Turku and Bourgas from Budapest, while three-times-weekly services to Frankfurt-Hahn will resume.
Elsewhere, the carrier will also commence twice-weekly flights to Bari from the Hungarian capital.
Jozsef Varadi, Wizz Air’s chief executive officer, said the airline is attracting more passengers in the country.
"Building on this momentum we aim at achieving over 20 percent passenger traffic growth in Budapest in 2010," he commented.
Meanwhile, the airline will commence cheap flights to Tampere from the Polish seaport of Gdansk on June 13th.
