In addition, the service to Beauvais will be reinforced.
Wizz Air announced on February 22 that it will continue to invest in Cluj-Napoca airport, in the Transylvania region in northwestern Romania, by basing a seventh Airbus A320 family from November 2018. Two new routes were unveiled on this occasion.
Lyon will be served from November 20, 2018 twice a week. Flights are scheduled on Tuesdays and Saturdays, leaving Cluj-Napoca at 2:15 p.m. (arrival at 3:45 p.m.) and Lyon at 4:15 p.m. (arrival at 7:40 p.m.). Cluj-Napoca will become the second destination of Wizz Air from Lyon-Saint Exupéry, after Warsaw inaugurated in June 2017.
In addition, Vienna will be served from May 30, 2018 with two flights per week, then will increase to four flights per week from November 20, 2018 as well.
The arrival of the seventh A320 will also allow Wizz Air to increase the frequency of seven existing destinations for the winter 2018-2019 season in Cluj-Napoca: Beauvais (9 flights per week instead of 6), Doncaster-Sheffield (3 instead 2), Dortmund (5 instead of 4), Madrid (6 instead of 4), Rome-Fiumicino (7 instead of 4), Bucharest (13 instead of 10) and Londres-Luton (21 instead of 19).
In total, Wizz Air will offer Cluj-Napoca 2.1 million seats on 36 routes to 18 countries this year. The company presents itself as the first in Romania. In 2018, it will base a total of 25 planes there (including 7 A321s with 230 seats) to offer 8.9 million seats from 10 Romanian airports and serve 165 domestic and international routes.
In France, Wizz Air, which is developing its network rapidly, is also present in Bordeaux, Mulhouse-Basel, Nice and Grenoble, in addition to Beauvais and Lyon.
The first Wizz Air flight in France took off from Beauvais in 2004. Since then, more than 5.5 million passengers have flown with the company from France. In 2017, Wizz Air sold more than one million tickets on its French routes, up 13% compared to 2016.
