Following the base establishment with three aircraft this year, Wizz is set to deploy two additional Airbus A321 at Vienna Airport by March 2019, growing its annual capacity to over two million seats on sale. The additional aircraft is expected to allow Wizz to further diversify and expand its Vienna network.
Wizz Air’s offer from Austria is scheduled to include nine new routes from Vienna to the following; Nice (France), Reykjavik (Iceland), Catania and Milan (Italy), Lisbon (Portugal), Madrid (Spain), Malmo and Stockholm Skavsta (Sweden), and Kharkiv (Ukraine). The newest Wizz services are planned to commence from February and March 2019.
The base establishment and the expansion of the operations represent a total investment of over USD570 million (EUR 462 million), creating more than 200 direct jobs with Wizz Air. The airline’s extended operations are also to contribute to the local economy, supporting aviation, transportation, hospitality and tourism jobs.
