New Moscow Route for Wizz Air

Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced a new route from its Debrecen base to Moscow. The newest WIZZ route will commence on 18 December and will be operated with two weekly flights, on Mondays and Fridays. Seats are already on sale with fares starting from as low as €29 

Wizz Air’s first commercial flight took off from Debrecen Airport in 2012 and since then, the airline has constantly expanded its Debrecen network, which now consists of seven low-fare routes to seven countries. In 2015 WIZZ based one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft at the airport investing $100m** in the region. In the past 12 months, WIZZ carried 275,000 passengers on its low-fare Debrecen routes, which represents a 12% growth year over year. Wizz Air’s operations this year support over 200*** local jobs stimulating aviation, transportation, hospitality, and tourism industries in the region.

The new Debrecen service is already the third route to Russia in WIZZ’s ever-growing Hungarian network. Since 2013, the airline already connects Budapest with Moscow with a daily flight and just recently launched a Saint-Petersburg service from the Hungarian capital, which stimulates incoming tourism to Hungary with more travelers willing to discover the country as well as plan a multi-city European journey on Wizz Air’s low fares.

Being the hometown airline of Hungary, Wizz Air currently operates flights from two Hungarian bases in Budapest and Debrecen with a total of 12 aircraft in the country, and two more aircraft to join the Budapest fleet in 2018, increasing the capacity on routes from Hungary to 5,5 million seats. In the past 12 months, more than 4 million passengers flew with WIZZ to and from Hungary, 17% more year over year.

With 15 new services commencing this year, and two more in 2018, WIZZ now offers 73 routes from its two Hungarian airports.
