5-Sep-2013 10:56 AM

Wizz Air announced (04-Sep-2013) the fourth aircraft for its Bulgaria base at Sofia Airport. The new A320 aircraft will be delivered in Sofia in May-2014. The new aircraft will support operations of a total of 16 Sofia routes and increase seat capacity by 30% resulting in over 1.1 million seats. Wizz Air has announced more weekly services on the existing services to Brussels Charleroi (from three to four times weekly), Eindhoven (from four to five times weekly), London Luton (from seven to 11 times weekly) and Milan Bergamo (from seven to 10 times weekly), while the aircraft will also support the summer operation of the earlier announced Dubai route, scheduled to commence on 29-Oct-2013, and a new route to Malmo which will be operated twice weekly from 16-May-2014.  Wizz Air CCO György Abrán said, "At Wizz Air we are committed to the Bulgarian market and the development of the infrastructure of low cost air travel. Recently we have announced routes to Larnaca, Kiev and Dubai and today we are adding the Scandinavian link to Malmo. We clearly see that Bulgarian consumers are as enthusiastic about our low fares as millions of Wizz Air passengers in Europe and beyond and in response to the high demand for Wizz Air’s low fares I am thrilled to announce a new aircraft to our Sofia base. This will stimulate job growth and benefit consumers as we look forward to bringing more low fares to Bulgaria.” [more - original PR]
