Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced it is temporarily suspending operations from Aeroportul Craiova (CRA) while the airport runway undergoes renovation during the summer.
“Temporarily suspending operations here should help airport officials complete the renovation and runway resurfacing process in a timely manner, perhaps even earlier than planned,” said Daniel de Carvalho, Wizz Air spokesman. “As a committed partner to Craiova, we are happy to support a runway improvement project that will pay dividends to the region for many years to come. We look forward to resuming our operations from Craiova later this year, on a completely renovated runway.”
The Wizz Air aircraft and crew serving routes from Craiova will be redeployed to other markets while the runway work is being done. Customers with bookings affected by Wizz Air’s temporary service suspension from Craiova are being contacted and offered a full refund, Wizz Credit, or rebooking free of charge.
