Wizz Air continues to expand in Budapest

Wizz Air announced at a press conference in Budapest that it would launch new routes and increase frequencies of a number of existing services by adding a fourth Airbus A320 aircraft to its Budapest base, starting on 24 July 2010.

– London Luton will be served three times a day versus the current double daily operation.
– Services to Brussels Charleroi and Eindhoven will be increased to 11 times a week from daily, each.
– Frequencies to Malmo-Copenhagen, Turku and Bourgas will also be increased.
–  Wizz Air will re-start the Budapest – Frankfurt Hahn route three times a week and launch Budapest-Bari twice a week initially.

With the new capacity Wizz Air offers a network of 22 routes from and to Budapest.

"Recently we have been experiencing a strong shift of customer preference towards Wizz Air in Hungary resulting from our own expansion in a declining market as well as the weaknesses of competing airlines. Building on this momentum we aim at achieving over 20% passenger traffic growth in Budapest in 2010"  said Jozsef Varadi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air.
