Bucharest - Edinburgh with Wizz Air
W6 3013 Bucharest 18: 05 - 20: 10 Edinburgh
W6 3014 Edinburgh 20: 40 - 02: 20 Bucharest
According to the schedule, the flights are operated by aircraft from Bucharest. The schedule is one in the evening. It takes off at 18: 05 in Bucharest with landing around 20: 10 in Edinburgh. Return from Edinburgh at 20: 40 and land in Bucharest around 02: 10 the following day.
It is not a timetable for second-hand travelers. We arrive late at the hotel. And on return, the check-in is normally done at noon, and then you will have to carry your luggage through the city until close to flight time. But we hope that in the future the schedule will change, at least at noon :).
