Wizz Air launches third Romanian base

Hungarian cheap flights carrier Wizz Air has opened its tenth base in Timisoara and announced that it will deploy a second aircraft in Prague.

The expansion comes after the airline announced its intention to double its presence in Romania and become the country’s dominant airline.

Its base in Timisoara is Wizz Air’s third in the country.

Commenting on the expansion, a Wizz Air statement said: "The airline has taken over the leadership in the low-cost sector in Romania with 34 percent market share already in February."

From July, the airline will base a second Airbus A320 in Prague, allowing it to increase its number of cheap flights to Rome Fiumicino, Brussels Charleroi, Paris Beauvais and Eindhoven.

Wizz Air will also launch a new flight from the Czech capital to Naples, Madrid and Malmo.

The news was announced by Wizz air chief executive officer Jozsef Varadi yesterday (February 23rd), the day the airline launched new flights from Prague to London Luton, Rome, Milan Bergamo and Brussels Charleroi.

Last month Wizz Air celebrated the second anniversary of its first flight from Bucharest.
