Budapest Airport lines up its 12th new service for next summer, announcing Wizz Air’s latest addition to its fast-growing Ukraine network. Confirming the airport’s first link to Zaporizhia, this new destination further boosts Budapest’s quickly expanding network to Ukraine. And it further strengthens Hungary’s presence to the six busiest gateways of the Eastern European country.
“Zaporizhia becomes a new destination on our route map and our sixth new service to Ukraine across all airlines in just three months,” states Balázs Bogáts, Head of Airline Development, Budapest Airport. “The demand is exceptional and with the support of our closely-held airline partners we’re able to offer schedules to suit all.”
Using its fleet of 180-seat A320s, the ultra-low-cost carrier will begin a twice-weekly (Thursdays and Sundays) service from Zaporizhia in the south-east of Ukraine from 29 March 2020. Zaporizhia is a new city for Wizz Air and it will be the airline’s fifth city in the country from Budapest. With this latest expansion, from next June Wizz Air will offer 13-weekly services from Budapest to the increasingly popular cities of Ukraine.
