Wizz Air has opened 26th base in Chisinau, Moldova.
The airline has based one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft at Chisinau Airport, and will operate seven low-fare routes, including the two new services to Berlin and Barcelona.
The base establishment in Chisinau represents a significant investment by Wizz in Moldova and creates 36 direct jobs with the airline.
Wizz Air’s local crew is trained to the highest standards, delivering a fantastic customer experience on each flight.
The new aircraft allocated today will support operations of the new routes to Berlin and Barcelona with two weekly services each, long-awaited by Chisinau travellers.
The new aircraft will also allow Wizz Air to increase the number of weekly flights on existing routes from Chisinau to Bologna and Venice.
Over the past four years, Wizz Air has carried 500,000 passengers on Chisinau routes, underlining its commitment to the country, stimulating local tourism and the aviation industry, as well as strengthening business relations between countries.
Petru Jardan, general manager of Chisinau Airport, said: “Today we are witnessing an important event in the development of Chisinau Airport.
“The Wizz Air base opening at Chisinau demonstrates once again that our airport becomes more important in the aviation industry.
“An operational base means more flights to various European cities, which will stimulate the local job market in aviation and tourism.
“Avia Invest is looking forward to further expand its offer with more low-fare routes from Chisinau airport.”
