Wizz Air continues Budapest expansion

Wizz Air is to add new routes and increase the frequencies of a number of existing services by introducing a fourth Airbus A320 at its Budapest base from 24 July.

London Luton gets one extra flight a day taking it to three from the current double daily operation. Services to Brussels Charleroi and Eindhoven will each be increased to 11 times a week from daily operation. Frequencies to Malmo-Copenhagen (five a week from four), Turku (up to three a week from two) and Bourgas (up to three a week from two) will also be increased.

Wizz Air will re-start the Budapest–Frankfurt Hahn route three times a week on 24 July and will launch Budapest–Bari with a twice weekly service from 26 July.

With the new capacity Wizz Air will offer a network of 22 routes from and to Budapest. "Recently we have been experiencing a strong shift of customer preference towards Wizz Air in Hungary resulting from our own expansion in a declining market as well as the weaknesses of competing airlines. Building on this momentum we aim at achieving over 20% passenger traffic growth in Budapest in 2010," explained József Váradi, chief executive officer of Wizz Air.
