Wizz Air further expands in Vienna by adding a 6th aircraft

Wizz Air has added a sixth aircraft to its Vienna base after announcing that an Airbus A321 will join the fleet in the middle of December.

This will enable the start of six new services from Vienna to Alicante, Bremen, Chisinau, Naples, Oslo and Porto and the increase of frequencies of the airline’s existing Eindhoven and Tel Aviv routes.

Wizz Air opened its Austrian base in Vienna International Airport in June 2018 and after only one year of operations, the airline will grow its fleet to six Airbus aircraft.

The new Airbus A321 aircraft represents an investment of further $118 million by Wizz Air into the Austrian aviation market and contribute to the creation of over 40 new direct jobs with Wizz Air. Together with these six new services Wizz Air now offers 38 routes to 23 countries from Vienna.

In 2018 the airline carried nearly 500,000 passengers on its Austrian routes its very first year at the Austrian capital. Together with the six new routes, and the frequency increases announced today Wizz Air will offer almost three million seats in the airline’s Austrian network in 2020, which represents a 21 per cent year-on-year growth.

Wizz Air chief executive officer, József Váradi said: “Today’s announcement underlines our long term commitment to Vienna, Austria and our desire to offer more and more low-fare travel opportunities to our distinguished Austrian passengers.”
