Confirming its tenth aircraft will be based at Budapest Airport from S16, Wizz Air also announced a number of new routes and frequency increases made possible by the addition. Specifically the extra aircraft will accommodate the planned increases on the London Luton service, from four to five daily, as well as an expected weekly increase to Gothenburg. While commencing the already-announced W15 new routes to Tenerife South and Birmingham, the carrier has now also confirmed the launch of a twice-weekly service to Nice, as well as a new route to Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, both due to start this winter. In total Wizz Air will have a total of 45 routes to 20 countries, with the new hangar providing the security of smooth operation and high quality services.
“The rapid construction of the new Wizz Air hangar is testament to Budapest Airport’s continuous focus and investment in the future,” commented Jost Lammers, CEO, Budapest Airport. “We highly value and support the growth of our largest airline partner and this development signifies a joint commitment and confidence in the Hungarian market,” added Lammers.
