For 2017 WIZZ has already announced 14 new routes to nine countries from Romania, such as the picturesque sunny destinations Lamezia Terme, Malta and Larnaca or the popular citybreak  getaways: Warsaw, Bratislava and Stockholm. Already the largest airline in Romania, Wizz Air is always looking to expand its network and create more opportunities for its customers, offering now 133 routes to 20 countries across Europe from 9 Romanian airports.

Over the past decade, more than 28 million passengers from Romania have enjoyed the WIZZ experience, low fares, easy booking system and excellent on-board service. This year Wizz Air will have 22 aircraft based in Romania, including 5 of the ultra-efficient brand new 230-seat Airbus A321, employing over 750 customer-oriented crew.

Sorina Ratz, Communications Manager at Wizz Air said: “Wizz Air has started a new era in domestic Romanian air travel only 6 months ago by launching the Bucharest – Cluj-Napoca service, and today we are thrilled to celebrate a significant milestone 100 000 passengers. Over the past decade, since WIZZ’s first flight from  Romania, we earned the trust and loyalty of our Romanian customers and we remain committed to providing low fare travel opportunities and expanding our network to best meet our customers’ needs.
