Wizz Air announced that it will base a seventh aircraft at its Warsaw base. From June 2017 the airline will start operating seven new services connecting Warsaw with four Central and Eastern European capitals, Bratislava, Bucharest, Kiev and Vilnius and three popular leisure destinations, Lyon and Nice in France and Lamezia Terme in Italy.
With the addition of the new aircraft, Wizz Air’s Warsaw fleet will contain four Airbus A320ceos and three Airbus A321ceos. With 230 seats on board, the Airbus A321ceo is the most efficient single-aisle passenger aircraft. Its superior operating economics mean that WIZZ offers more seats to more destinations at WIZZ’s lowest fares at the same time as delivering the lowest emissions and noise footprint in its class.
The new services to Kiev will commence on 1 July 2016 and will be operated with three weekly flights, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays. Tickets are already on sale at wizzair.com starting at only UAH 689.
Speaking at a press conference in Warsaw today, József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air, said: “Warsaw was one of the first cities we added to the WIZZ network in 2004 and over the past 12 years, we earned the trust and loyalty of our Polish customers. This year we based a 6th aircraft at our Chopin Airport launching plenty of exciting low-fare services, deployed two Airbus A321 aircraft on our most popular routes, celebrated the remarkable 13 million passengers milestone and today we deliver more great news for our Warsaw customers. Adding a seventh aircraft to our Warsaw fleet we create more local jobs and add four new countries accessible on Wizz Air’s low fares from Warsaw’s main airport to provide even more low-fare travel opportunities for both business and leisure travelers. We stay committed to our Polish customers and keep on expanding our ever-growing network to best meet their needs.”
