Wizz Air gives up the Bucharest - Cluj route
Cristian, our colleague with devil's fingers, noted that the Bucharest - Cluj route will no longer be operated after the October 27 date, with the transition to the winter season 2018-2019.
A surprise move made by Wizz Air on domestic flights from Romania. Starting with 27 October 2018, the Bucharest - Cluj-Napoca route no longer appears in the reservation system. An apparently profitable route, it seems that it no longer rises to the expectations of the low-cost operator.
The route was inaugurated on 22 July 2016, being a serious competitor for TAROM and Blue Air. Wizz Air started with 6 weekly flights, then increasing to 10 weekly flights after the October 31 2016 date.
Wizz Air withdraws from the Bucharest - Cluj route
Currently, until 26 October 2018, Wizz Air flies by 6 weekly flights between Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca. The rates are very good, starting from 39 lei / segment. Soon we will publish the reason for the withdrawal from this route.
Wizz Air official statement: “As a normal practice in the aviation industry, the flight frequencies change depending on the season and the performance of the routes. Wizz Air constantly monitors the performance of its routes to allow the most popular services to have the lowest prices possible.
The Bucharest - Cluj-Napoca race will be discontinued after the 26 date of October, because it did not work according to our expectations and, therefore, the Wizz Air network in Romania must be optimized. The additional capacity will be allocated to other routes in the next period.
Passengers affected by this decision will be informed and given the possibility of free reprogramming on alternative Wizz flights, full refund of tickets paid or 120% credit from the original reservation in the WIzz account. ”
