As part of WIZZ’s expansion across Europe, the airline will continue to increase its operations at Vienna International Airport to become the second largest carrier in Austria in 2019. With a total investment of $ 570 million**, the airline will open a new base in Vienna with 5 new Airbus aircraft allocated and a local staff of more than 200 employees by March 2019. WIZZ offers in total more than 2.6 million seats on 30 services to/from Austria in 2019, as it aims to create more opportunities for Vienna travelers and their visitors to enjoy low fare tickets and great travel experience.
”Today the whole WIZZ team is happy to celebrate an important step in our European expansion by starting operations from Vienna International Airport and inaugurating the first three routes. But the WIZZ experience in Austria is only just starting! Our base opens in June 2018 and, by March next year, 200 local colleagues will be flying our Austrian customers to 30 destinations in 22 countries on board our Vienna-based fleet of brand-new Airbus aircraft. We know our Austrian customers will love the convenient schedule of our flights, the easy online booking system in wizzair.com and all the choices to customize their travel - as well as the opportunity to travel from Vienna at genuinely low fares for the very first time,” said Sorina Ratz, Acting Head of Corporate Communications at Wizz Air. “WIZZ’s mission has always been make air travel affordable for more people than ever before and, with that, we bring more customers and stimulate the aviation and tourism industries of the communities we serve.”
