Wizz Air to start Cluj-Napoca and London Gatwick service

Wizz Air, Romania’s largest airline and the fastest growing airline in Europe today announced a new route between Cluj-Napoca and London Gatwick, starting from 31 March.

One of the world’s most popular city among tourists, London is a wonderful place to spend your time in. The city is built on the banks of the river Thames, dividing it to two equally interesting parts with monumental buildings and bridges such as the Tower Bridge, the Westminster Abbey and the London Eye. You may have some concerns about British cuisine but once you get a taste of a hot and fresh meat pie at a charmingly authentic pub it will all go away.




Tamara Vallois, Head of Communications at Wizz Air, said: “We are delighted to announce the addition of one more new route from Cluj-Napoca to the British capital. In 2018, Wizz Air and Avram Iancu International Airport had a fruitful cooperation resulting in the addition of our 7 aircraft and 5 new routes from Cluj-Napoca. Our newest route offers low-cost travel to the second biggest airport of the capital, London Gatwick, providing great value at truly low fares. London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities, well-loved by tourists from all over the world. It is a perfect destination for a short stay where you can see the famous sights or even a longer holiday for enjoying the whole package London can offer. We are confident that our Romanian customers will enjoy visiting this must-see city. Our friendly Romanian crew looks forward to welcoming you on board a WIZZ flight!”
