EuroAirport adds new LCC routes

EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg in Switzerland has recently welcomed new routes from two low-fare airlines; Air Arabia Maroc and Wizz Air.

Wizz Air is launching a new route from the airport to Pristina in Kosovo, to be operated from the Basel airport to the Kosovan capital three times weekly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays starting 20 November.

“We were thrilled to announce this new route from Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg to Pristina, Kosovo,” said Andras Rado, corporate communications manager at Wizz Air. “Wizz is the European airline that is always looking to create more and more exciting travel connections for its customers across Europe and beyond. Our continuous growth further strengthens Wizz Air’s commitment to EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, as well as stimulate the tourism and hospitality sectors in the region and in the agglomerations of the three countries around the airport.”

The airport is also welcoming a new second service from low-fare airline Air Arabia Maroc to Morocco.

The new service connecting Basel to Agadir will start on 29 October 2018, joining the Basel – Casablanca route which has been operating since 2010.

Adel Al Ali, Group chief executive officer of Air Arabia, said: “We are pleased to announce the launch of our second service from Basel Airport. After seven years of operations to Casablanca, we have decided to offer our customers a new value for money option to fly directly to the sunny city of Agadir.”

The new service is currently on sale and will operate once a week on Mondays.

This is the latest in a series of new routes announced by the Moroccan airline this year, including plans announced earlier this year to launch a new service from Birmingham to Agadir which commences on 28 October.

In July the LCC took delivery of two new Airbus A320 aircraft, bringing its total operating fleet to 53 aircraft and with Adel Al Ali calling it a “significant step in the development of our fleet expansion strategy.”
