    [textarea]Wizz announce Liverpool – Vilnius flights

    Wizz Air, the largest budget airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced a new service that will link Liverpool Airport with Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania from next summer. The flights will operate twice weekly - on Mondays and Fridays - starting on 28th May 2012.

    The flights will be Wizz Air’s fourth route from Liverpool. Having commenced operations from the airport in late 2004, flights currently operating to Warsaw, Gdansk and Katowice in Poland. This latest addition to its network will mean that the airport will offer passengers links with all the major cities in the Baltic states, complementing existing services to Tallinn in Estonia, Riga in Latvia and Kaunas also in Lithuania.

    This means that the airline will operate to four destinations from Liverpool: Budapest, Gdansk, Riga and Warsaw Chopin.

    I recall sometime back Wizz saying they would be looking at opening some UK bases, potentially looking at operating flights to the Med as well as the usual Eastern European destinations. I wonder if they are any closer to doing that? I would think Liverpool will be a hot contender if it happens.

    I've noticed Wizz advertising their routes on posters on the side of buses quite a bit lately.

    WIZZ AIR ANNOUNCES THREE NEW ROUTES FROM LIVERPOOL TO ROMANIA

    Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airline groups including Wizz Air UK, today announces the launch of three new routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to the Romanian cities of Bucharest, Cluj and Iași.

    With fares starting from just £23*, seats are on sale now and can be booked online at wizzair.com. The new services, which connect Liverpool with three of Romania’s most vibrant destinations will commence at the end of October 2018.

    Wizz Air is bringing truly affordable travel opportunities to customers in the north-west of England, who now have the opportunity to explore seven destinations in Romania, Poland and Hungary on WIZZ’s low fare flights from Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

    Including the new services announced today, Wizz Air now offers a total of 17 weekly flights from Liverpool, with more than 290,000 seats on sale in 2019 on flights to and from Liverpool. This represents nearly 17% growth compared to 2018, with the expansion of Wizz Air’s operations at Liverpool John Lennon Airport benefiting the region’s tourism, hospitality and aviation related industries.

    2018 has been a significant year of growth for Wizz Air’s UK operations, following the launch of Wizz Air UK in May and the allocation of eight Airbus aircraft to the UK fleet.

    Wizz Air Chief Corporate Officer, Owain Jones, said: “Wizz Air’s investment in the UK continues as we bring new flights to Liverpool John Lennon Airport, increasing our network of destinations for our customers in the North West to include some of Romania’s most historic and lively destinations. The new routes offer the perfect choice for a city break with a difference and access to Romania’s beautiful countryside. We are looking forward to welcoming even more customers travelling on our seven routes from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, as they experience WIZZ’s truly low fares and great service on board one of Europe’s youngest and most efficient aircraft fleets.”

    Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “Wizz Air is well established in the North West having operated services from Liverpool for almost 14 years and we are delighted to see this latest phase of their development with these 3 new routes complimenting their existing 4 destinations currently served from Liverpool. There is a strong demand for flights between the North West and Romania, giving more passengers the opportunity to take advantage of our faster, easier, friendlier customer experience, where 93% of passengers currently pass through security in less than 5 minutes.

    They are looking to compete with Blue Air on these routes, bar one, which is new. Its a good move however and cements Liverpool's relationship with Wizz. Blue are used to competing with them out of Luton, so will see.

    Be nice to see Wizz expand to Med destinations from Liverpool like they do from Luton.
