Wizz Air, a UK registered and London Stock Exchange listed low-cost airline is to further expand its operations at Luton with three new routes.
Starting in the coming Spring, Wizz will add Athens (Greece), Keflavik (Iceland) and Bari (Italy).
Frequency will also increase on the route to Larnaca (Cyprus) to ten flights per week.
The Hungarian airline flies 45 routes to 22 countries from Luton, representing 23% growth year on year.
This year, Wizz Air says it will continue to invest in its Luton operations and has achieved several key milestones in its development in the UK. These new routes are part of the next phase in the airline’s expansion plans following the establishment of Wizz Air UK and the increase of its Luton based fleet to seven aircraft, including two Airbus A321.
As the second largest airline operating at Luton, Wizz has carried more than 5.56m passengers on its low fare routes in the past 12 months, an increase of 11% compared to the previous period. Following the continuous investment, in 2018, Wizz Air will offer more than 7.4m seats in and out of the North London airport.
