From 31 March we will switch all our routes currently operated from Forli to Bologna. We hope our customers will enjoy the more centrally located Bologna Airport and its excellent facilities when travelling. We encourage our passengers to arrive early for their flights and enjoy the shopping opportunities at Bologna Airport. As always, airport duty free purchases can be carried on board Wizz Air aircraft with no extra payment. Our low fares and excellent service are set to attract passengers at Bologna to try Wizz Air’s five routes to Bulgaria and Romania and we look forward to a good partnership with Bologna Airport.”
Antonello Bonolis, Aviation Business and Corporate Communication Manager at Bologna Airport, said: “Eastern Europe is an important market for the Bologna area. The market is fast growing and more and more people are increasing their relationships with all the Central and Eastern European Countries. Whether they are entrepreneurs investing there or local tradesmen looking for good business in our region or even tourists looking for enchanting places to visit or simply residents from those countries rejoining their families, they all need to travel in a convenient way and they’re all looking for “value for money”. This vision is something we definitely shared with WizzAir and today we’re glad to rekindle our cooperation. As a first step, we focused on two of the most important countries in the Balcans, but we have plans to expand to other destinations in the next future. This partnership is strategic for both parties and we are sure it will give our region outstanding opportunities.”
