European low-cost airline Wizz Air will increase its number of flights to Bucharest from London Luton this winter.
Central and eastern Europe’s largest cheap flights carrier is planning to markedly increase its presence in the Romanian capital, where it will soon be basing a fifth aircraft.
From December 15th, Wizz Air will boost its flights frequency to London’s fourth-largest airport, while a number of its other popular routes will be served by an increased number of flights.
These include routes to Barcelona, Milan Bergamo, Rome Ciampino, Paris Beauvais, Madrid and Valencia.
John Stephenson, Wizz Air’s executive vice president, said that by having the right business model the airline has been able to deliver "great results" in Romania.
"Our success proves the critical importance of disciplined cost control and robust liquidity position, the two pillars that distinguishes Wizz Air’s business model," he commented.
"As the Romanian market leader airline, Wizz Air will stay committed to support the ever growing demand for air-travel in Romania."
Elsewhere, on December 16th Wizz Air will commence flights to Brno in the Czech Republic from London Luton, with the carrier operating the route three times per week.
