Wizz Air has announced the allocation of a ninth aircraft to its Vienna base. The new Airbus A321 will join the fleet on July 1, 2020, enabling the start of five new routes from Vienna to Alghero, Corfu, Faro, Podgorica and Suceava as well as the increase of frequencies of the airline’s existing Milan, Rome, Málaga and Porto routes.
Wizz Air opened its Austrian base at Vienna International Airport in June 2018.
Together with these five new services Wizz Air now offers 49 routes to 27 countries from Vienna.
In 2019 the airline has carried more than 2.2 million passengers on its Austrian routes which accounts for a 370% year on year growth. Together with the five new routes, and the frequency increases announced today Wizz Air will offer over 4.1 million seats in the airline’s Austrian network in 2020, which represents a 70% year on year growth. WIZZ’s fast-growing operations in the country will further stimulate the local economy, by increasing employment in Austria’s aviation and tourism sectors and supporting more than 3,000 local jobs in the associated industries** in 2020.
