Low-fare carrier, Wizz Air, has relaunched a direct route to Cluj-Napoca, Romania’s second largest city, from Birmingham Airport.
The route which operates twice weekly on a Wednesday and Sunday launched at the end of 2018 on 27 December.
Birmingham Airport’s acting aviation director, Tom Screen, described the new route as “fantastic news”.
He added that Cluj-Napoca is an “exciting addition to our growing variety of direct services. Home to incredible architecture and gothic-style landmarks dating back to Saxon and Hungarian rule, vibrant nightlife and a wide range of forests and parks, Cluj-Napoca has something to offer everyone.”
Screen also emphasised the airport’s objectives to work with airlines to ensure that there is enough choice to satisfy demand for new routes – “ whether this involved the introduction of additional direct services or an increase in the frequency of services.”
Meanwhile, Wizz Air’s head of communications, Tamara Vallois, said: “Our newest route from Birmingham connects the city with Romania’s second largest city, the lively Cluj-Napoca, which brings an outstanding opportunity for the travellers who seek adventure to explore real Romanian hospitality and the vibe of Transylvania.”
Vallois described the city’s nightlife as “bubbling” and combined with the city’s historical sights, it offers the “perfect combination for a weekend trip to Central and Eastern Europe.”
