Wizz Air has launched the only direct route from the UK to Finland’s oldest city, Turku. Flights will operate from Wizz Air UK’s base at London Luton Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Wizz Air carried a record 34.6 million passengers in the year to March 31st, up by nearly 17 per cent on financial 2018. At the same time, the low-cost carrier reported that net profit grew six per cent to a record €292 million.
Affected Wow Air passengers can take advantage of a special fare with Wizz Air, which operates four flights per week from Reykjavík to London Luton.
Baggage handlers and check-in staff employed by GH London Ground Handling Services at Luton Airport have voted for strike action. The decision was taken in response to the company’s decision to impose a pay freeze on staff.
Wizz Air has revealed the launch of a new route between Gatwick Airport and Cluj-Napoca. The news follows an announcement from Wizz Air UK, a UK-based, wholly-owned subsidiary of Wizz Air Holdings, that it plans to expand at its London Luton base.
Wizz Air has welcomed the opening of its new, 3,800-square metre state-of-the-art training centre in Budapest, Hungary. As part of a ten-year agreement, CAE is also providing training centre operation services to Wizz Air by operating and maintaining the training equipment suite for the airline at the new facility.
The new Gatwick connection to Hungary’s capital will see Wizz Air increase its presence at London’s second busiest airport, where it already operates flights three times daily to the Romanian capital of Bucharest.
Along with the establishment of the new base, Wizz Air will launch twelve new services to nine countries from Krakow, including routes to London Luton and Doncaster Sheffield, starting from April.
The new service will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and connects UK passengers to one of Ukraine’s major cultural and scientific hubs.
