"Wizz Air first took off from Bulgaria almost 10 years ago in September 2005. We are thrilled about continuing our growth in the country and offering very low fares and excellent services to our ever-expanding customer base of Bulgarian passengers and their visitors. Our capacity increase will create a number of new jobs at Wizz Air as well as in associated services and industries in Bulgarian capital and we expect to see many passengers on board of our planes." - said György Abrán, Chief Commercial Officer of Wizz Air.
