Wizz Air suspends activity at Craiova airport
During the period 1 June - 13 September 2015, Wizz Air will temporarily suspend operations at Craiova Airport (CRA) due to the renovation of the runway, which will take place during the summer.
The investment aims at the rehabilitation of the landing-take-off runway of Craiova Airport, the widening of the toll road, the extension of the boarding-disembarkation platform, the modernization of the bollarding facility, the construction of a transformer station, and the creation of a new sewerage system. The value of the project is 24,4 million, VAT included. (Source: CraiovaForum.ro)
"Temporary suspension of operations should help airport representatives complete the runway's renovation and restoration within a reasonable time, even earlier than planned," said Daniel de Carvalho, Wizz Air spokesman. “As a dedicated partner of Craiova, we are pleased to support the track improvement project, which will benefit the region for many years from now. We look forward to resuming our operations in Craiova later, this year, on a completely renovated track. "
Wizz Air aircraft and personnel serving Craiova operations will be relocated to other markets during runway work. Customers who have reservations affected by the temporary suspension of services in Craiova are contacted and are offered the full refund, the option to keep the amount paid in the form of WIZZ Credit or the free reprogramming.
