Visaire (Wizz Air) The low cost company with the fastest growth rate in Europe announces another expansion to its base in Italy, making it the third largest airline in the country. Visier will assign three Airbus A321neo aircraft to its bases in Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa. 2 to Rome and one to Milan.
The allocation of these aircraft enables the launch of 12 new routes as well as increased frequency on five routes from Rome to Fiumicino and three routes from Milan to Lapensa. The new routes will be launched from October 2022, with flight ticket bookings now available on wizzair.com or the airline’s app.
Allocation of two additional aircraft to the Rome Fiumicino base will increase the base to seven aircraft. The move brings the number of routes from the base to 65, including the launch of seven new routes from the Italian capital. Passengers will now be able to fly from Rome to Barcelona, Gothenburg, Malaga, Paris Orly, Porto, Seville and Valencia. Moreover, the additional capacity allows Wizz Air to increase its flight frequency from the base to Eindhoven, Hurghada, Paris Orly, Tel Aviv and Yerevan.
Milan Malpensa will receive an additional aircraft, making it a six-aircraft base. From there Wizz Air will introduce five new routes to Cardiff, Jeddah, Marsa Alam, Riyadh and Yerevan from October 2022. This additional capacity also means that Wizz Air can increase the frequency of flights on the routes to Tel Aviv, Catania and Athens. With this expansion, the airline will operate flights to 43 destinations from Milan Malpensa.
“We are pleased to expand our operations in Italy and become the third largest airline in the country, which demonstrates our commitment to expand our presence in the market. The allocation of these three additional aircraft in Rome Fiumicino and Milan Malpensa allows us to further strengthen our domestic market offering, and give our customers the opportunity fly to 12 new destinations from Rome and Milan,” he says Robert Carey (Robert Carey), president of Wizz Air.
The airline has taken the difficult decision to close its base at Palermo Airport and from 3 November 2022, the aircraft currently based in Palermo will be re-positioned to support the expansion of operations at Rome and Milan airports.
The airline will continue to fly to Palermo Airport, operating daily flights between Milan Malpensa and Venice Marco Polo and Palermo, to ensure it can continue to serve loyal local customers, while flights between Palermo and Turin and Bologna will cease (representing only 4% of Wizz Air’s Italian domestic schedule). Wizz Air will continue to operate more than 220 weekly domestic flights and will expand its services from Turin and Bologna to its base at Catania Fontanarossa Airport, where Wizz Air has three aircraft.Abbreviated address for this article: https://www.ias.co.il?p=128635
