Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines and the leading carrier in Romania, announced today a new route from Sibiu to sunny Tel Aviv, commencing on 14 July with two weekly frequencies, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. The lively city located on the coast of Israel will be the first destination outside of Europe available from Sibiu International Airport. WIZZ passengers eager to discover this popular holiday destination can already book their tickets on wizzair.com from just RON 129.

Tel Aviv is Israel’s second city and the country’s cultural and commercial capital. Named “The Mediterranean Capital of Cool” by the New York Times, Tel Aviv, “the city which never sleeps” is a center for nightlife, cuisine, culture, and liberalism. Bordered on one side by the Mediterranean and long stretches of sandy beaches, and on the other by glass towers housing technology companies, Tel Aviv seems to have it all, from prominent museum and sunny beaches, to restored neighborhoods, fine restaurants or cultural events.

WIZZ has been the pioneer of the new travel era in Romania for more than a decade, bringing truly affordable fares and services, maximum choice for its customers and an easy online booking system. Travelers from Sibiu and their visitors can finally discover 11 popular destinations to 8 countries at genuinely low prices, with Wizz Air’s great value flights including some exciting and off-the-beaten-track destinations and offering the possibility of truly memorable experiences

Wizz Air as the hometown airline of Sibiu has earned the trust and loyalty of over half a million passengers since the beginning of its operations at Sibiu International Airport in 2014. In June, WIZZ will expand Sibiu operations, adding a second Airbus A320 aircraft to its local fleet. At the same time WIZZ will launch five long-awaited routes from Sibiu to Copenhagen, Brussels Charleroi, Paris Beauvais, Basel, Frankfurt and increase frequencies on four popular services. The increased investment at Sibiu airport will bring Wizz Air’s investment to almost $200 million**, and the WIZZ team at Sibiu will increase to more than 70 direct employees, all trained to deliver the highest standards of customer service and aviation safety, ensuring an excellent passenger experience at every stage of the Wizz Air journey. Looking to provide the lowest fare possible, WIZZ is offering tickets from as low as RON 129, underlining its commitment to democratize air travel in Romania and further stimulate tourism and business relations between countries.
