Practically, through this long-awaited route we are really connected with the whole world - anyone who wants to travel from Iași through the hub airport in Istanbul, will have the opportunity to reach destinations in North America, Asia or Australia.
In addition, Istanbul is a city that straddles two continents, giving it a strategic positioning both from a commercial and tourist point of view, which will have a positive impact on the development of the entire region. Thank you to our partner Wizz Air for your openness and trust, we are convinced that this new route will be a viable investment for all of us. At the same time, it is a clear sign that through the new infrastructure expansion project, which we are currently working on, we offer airlines more stability and the opportunity to develop in the long term."

For his part, Costel Alexe, the President of the Iași County Council, said: "The development of the International Airport means the development of Iași county and an entire region, and I want to tell you that during all this time we have managed to develop effective and reliable relations with partners and representatives of airline companies, so that at this moment we have more and more as many direct flights from Iasi to Dublin, Brussels, Madrid, Paris, Milan, but also to new destinations, such as Dortmund, Memmingen (Germany), Basel-Mulhouse (Switzerland) and Copenhagen (Denmark).
Our partners at Wizz Air announced today the opening of new gates. We will have a direct flight to ISTANBUL from the spring of this year. Many people from Iași wrote to us, we received many requests to introduce this flight, and here we are. Turkey will be just one flight away from Iasi."
