Wizz Air, Romania’s largest airline and one of the Europe’s fastest growing airlines, celebrates this February its ninth anniversary of its Timisoara base with a Seat Sale slashing 20%* off on all flights booked today through WIZZ Discount Club.
Wizz Air started its operations from Timisoara International Airport in 2008 and since then more than 4 million passengers have enjoyed WIZZ low fares and excellent service on board. Last year, Wizz Air carried almost 700,000 passengers on its Timisoara routes and supported over 500 local jobs** in associated industries in the region.
In February 2009, Timisoara became WIZZ’s 10 base in the network and the third in Romania, proving its commitment to the area and creating great benefits for the local community by stimulating the local job market in aviation and connected industries, as well as boosting business connections with other European countries. With two aircraft allocated, an investment of almost $ 202 million and a local team of more than 70 employees, Wizz Air low fare network from Timisoara offers now 16 routes to 8 countries, including several great destinations in Northern Italy, like Bari, Milan Bergamo, Venice Treviso or connections to some of Europe’s most popular cities like London, Valencia or Paris Beauvais. Last year, WIZZ has launched a new route to Tel Aviv, the first connection between Timisoara and a city outside Europe.
