Wizz Air will launch 16 new routes from / to Romania, in the summer of 2021
We are optimistic about the evolution of aviation in 2021. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, which will be maintained this year, more and more airlines are announcing new routes, expansion plans and tourist offers for the summer holidays.
Wizz Air, one of the largest low-cost airlines in Europe, maintains the strategy of the past years and announces an avalanche of new routes, but also more frequencies on existing routes. According to OAG, a global travel data provider based in the UK, Wizz Air has already announced the launch of 122 new routes, of which 16 are from / to Romania.
Wizz Air has expanded its operating network with new bases at the airports: Abu Dhabi, Bacau, Doncaster Sheffield, Dortmund, Larnaca, London Gatwick, Lviv, Milan Malpensa, Oslo Gadermoen, Saint Petesburg and Tirana (the base). In 2021, it will operate flights to new airports Almaty, Ancona, Cardiff, Chania, Dalaman, Genoa, Pescara, Preveza, Sharm El Sheikh, Skellefteå, Burgas (the base), Sarajevo (base) and Palermo (the base).
We mention that not all the routes announced for this summer are new, some of them being operated before the COVID-19 pandemic, others being announced in 2020, but postponed due to travel restrictions. Overall, according to the Wizz Air booking system, in the summer season 2021 there will be 122 new routes with flights starting March 25.
