Wizz Air announces new Turin-Palermo flight

Wizz Air, the main low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced the expansion of its network from Torino Airport with a new domestic route to and from Palermo.

The flights will be operated from 1 June 2021 with four weekly frequencies (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday) with starting fares from 9.99 euros. Tickets are on sale since today on the airline’s website www.wizzair.com or on the mobile app.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays departure from Palermo is scheduled at 2.15pm and arrival in Turin at 3.55pm; departure from Turin is instead scheduled at 4.30pm with arrival in the Sicilian capital at 6.10pm. On Sundays, departure time from Palermo is at 7.10pm and arrival in Turin at 8.50pm; departure from Turin at 9.25pm and arrival in Palermo at 10.55.

George Michalopoulos, chief commercial officer of Wizz Air said: “Today’s announcement underpins our commitment to develop our presence in Italy and to offer more affordable travel opportunities, while maintaining the highest standards of health protocols and safety. Our state-of-the-art aircraft and advanced safety measures will ensure the best possible hygienic conditions for travelers. Wizz Air operates the youngest and most cost-effective fleet with the lowest environmental footprint in Europe. The expansion of Wizz Air will not only offer cheaper travel opportunities, but will also contribute to the recovery of local economies and in particular the recovery of the tourism industry”.

Andrea Andorno, chief executive officer of Turin Airport commented: “We are very satisfied with the launch of the new Turin-Palermo flight announced today by Wizz Air, which marks the strengthening of the company on the market for domestic connections from our airport. After the route to Bari, Wizz Air now adds the flight to the Sicilian capital with four weekly frequencies. It is another confirmation of the fact that a recovery in travel demand on the national segment is expected in the next summer season, although in a context that is still heavily influenced by the health crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic”.
