Santander becomes a new destination for Wizz Air

Wizz Air, Romania’s largest airline and the fastest growing airline in Europe has announced a new route between Bucharest and Santander, starting from the 23rd of April 2019. The flights will be operated twice/week during the summer season, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Romanians can already plan their trip to Santander as tickets are already on sales from €19.99. 

Santander is a popular destination at the Atlantic Ocean that offers opportunities for everyone. Those seeking to relax under the sun can enjoy the local beaches and bars while others in search of the area’s cultural heritage can visit the many museums and cathedrals representing the region’s rich history.

The Spanish city is the 9 destination Wizz Air offers from Bucharest to Spain, besides Barcelona, Alicante, Madrid, Castellón, Málaga, Valencia, Tenerife and Zaragoza. Santander, situated in the Calabrian region, will be the 45th destination from Bucharest and the 145 destinations in the Wizz Air network.



Wizz Air’s first flight from Bucharest took off in 2007 and since then, the airline has become the leading carrier. In the first 10 months of 2018, WIZZ carried more than 8.3 million passengers on its low fare routes to and from Bucharest, which represents 14.1% growth year over year. Throughout the country, Wizz Air’s operations in 2018 supported more than 6,000 jobs** in associated industries.    

Tamara Vallois, Head of Corporate Communications at Wizz Air, said: “2018 was a great year with new aircraft allocation and 5 new routes for Wizz Air in Bucharest and we start 2019 with equally good news; a new route connecting Bucharest with Santander. This route will be the 9 route from the Romanian capital to Spain, a country with strong social and economic connections to Romania. Our newest route offers low-cost travel opportunities both for Romanians who travel to visit the large local community there and for tourists interested to discover the northern areas of Spain. We are confident that our Romanian customers will enjoy visiting this enchanting and warm city and region from as low as RON 99. Our friendly Romanian crew looks forward to welcoming passengers on board one of our aircraft!”
