WIZZ AIR STARTS A NEW ROUTE FROM BELGRADE TO LYON
TWO WEEKLY FLIGHTS WITH FARES FROM ONLY €14.99*
Wizz Air last week started a new low-fare service from its Serbian base in Belgrade to Lyon-Saint-Exupéry Airport in France.
Lyon is the third French destination Wizz Air operates flights to from Belgrade, next to Paris Beauvais and Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg. Service to Lyon started on 15 June 2018 and is operated on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with fares starting from as low as EUR 14.99 / RSD 1,799*. The maiden WIZZ flight from Belgrade landed in Lyon on 15 June with 147 passengers on board, underlining the demand for this route. Wizz Air currently offers 15 low-fare routes to 7 countries from Belgrade airport.
Lyon is the third-largest city and second-largest urban area of France. The city is known for its gastronomy, as well as historical and architectural landmarks. Part of it is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Lyon played an important role in the history of cinema. That is where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the cinematograph. It is also known for its light festival, the Fête des Lumières, which earned Lyon the title of the Capital of Lights.
It is not surprising that Lyon won the European Capital of Smart Tourism 2019 award granted by the European Union, a title it shares with Helsinki.
From a business perspective, Lyon is a major centre for banking, as well as for the chemical, pharmaceutical and biotech industries. The city contains a significant software industry with a particular focus on video games. In recent years it has fostered a growing local start-up sector.
Wizz Air has earned the trust and loyalty of nearly 4,5 million passengers since the beginning of its operations in Serbia in 2010. Last year, almost 800 000 passengers have enjoyed WIZZ’s low fares, easy booking system and excellent onboard service to and from Belgrade, supporting more than 710 local on-site jobs in aviation and tourism industry**.
“We are delighted to celebrate the launch of new WIZZ route from Belgrade to the popular business and tourism destination of Lyon, as we continue to create ever more travel opportunities for our passengers. Today’s announcement underlines our commitment to Serbia, a market we have been devoted to for the past 9 years.
