Wizz Air today announced a new route from Budapest to Saint Petersburg in Russia. The newest WIZZ service will commence on 27 August and will be operated two times a week.
Saint Petersburg is becoming the second Russian destination available from the Hungarian capital. In September 2013 Wizz Air launched the Budapest – Moscow service, and since then carried 440 thousand passengers between the two capitals.
Following the recent commencement of nine routes and the announcement of the Bordeaux, Astana and Frankfurt services, Saint Petersburg is already the 13 destination the airline will start operating flights from Budapest to in 2017. The airline now connects the Hungarian capital with 63 cities across Europe and beyond, which makes its Budapest offer the most diverse one in the entire WIZZ network.
WIZZ now offers 69 routes from Hungary connecting Budapest and Debrecen with 29 countries across Europe and beyond.
