Wizz Air says it will open its Austrian base with one Airbus A320 aircraft in June, which will be followed by the deployment of two additional Airbus A321 aircraft in November. This fast growth of Wizz Air’s Vienna base will see Wizz Air operate a total of 17 new routes from the Austrian capital in 2018.

The base establishment represents an investment by Wizz Air of USD 331 million and 120 new direct jobs with the airline will be created. The airline’s operations will also contribute to the local economy, supporting jobs in the aviation, transportation, hospitality and tourism industries.

Providing an extensive offer to both business and leisure travelers, the newest Wizz Air services will connect Vienna with Gdansk, Tuzla and Varna from April, with Bari, Malta, Rome, Valencia and Tel Aviv from June and with Billund, Bergen, Dortmund, Kutaisi, Larnaca, Nis, Ohrid, Tenerife and Thessaloniki from November.

The airline’s Chief Executive Officer, József Váradi, pointed out that “Wizz Air’s Austrian customers now have the opportunity to travel from Vienna on an extensive network of routes to Europe and beyond at the lowest prices and experience Wizz Air’s great service onboard one of Europe’s youngest fleets. The new routes will also allow Wizz Air’s customers from other countries to experience for themselves the beauty of Austria’s cities and mountains. Our new colleagues in Vienna will have the opportunity to develop their careers with one of the fastest-growing airlines in Europe and our Vienna operation will also create and support additional jobs in the local aviation, transportation and hospitality industries. We are confident that our excellent value service and extensive route network will make Wizz Air the airline of choice for travelers to and from Austria.
