Wizz Air to launch Sibiu – Tel Aviv direct flight

As of July 14, Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, will launch a new route from Sibiu to sunny Tel Aviv, with two weekly frequencies, on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

According to a press release, the 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 from RON 129.

”Wizz is now offering a direct connection to Tel Aviv from six Romanian airports. We continue to expand our ever-growing network in Sibiu, adding a second aircraft to the local base, lunching other five new exciting routes and of course, bringing the lowest fare possible for our passengers and offering an excellent customer experience,” Sorina Ratz, Acting Head of Corporate Communications at Wizz Air, said.

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 USD 200 million, and the Wizz team at Sibiu will increase to more than 70 direct employees.

Last year, over 255,000 passengers to and from Sibiu have enjoyed Wizz’s low fares, booking system and on-board service, supporting almost 200 local on-site jobs in aviation and tourism industry.

Hungary-based low cost carrier also reveals the latest traffic statistics and reports a new passenger record in the company’s history. More than 30 million passengers were carried in the past rolling 12 month-period, as its operations across Europe were increased with 24 percent compared to the similar period last year.

As part of the biggest operational ramp-up in Wizz Air’s history, commenced in early March, the carrier is adding in total 700 weekly flights and will see the delivery of 21 Airbus aircraft across its European bases in just 17 weeks.
