The airline is continuing to flourish and is experiencing remarkable growth. So we would like to congratulate Wizz Air for what they have achieved so far. In 2015, the airline will be launching three new routes from Charleroi, namely to Gdansk (Poland, from 19/06/2015), Lublin (Poland, from 14/09/2015) and now Debrecen. We continue to work closely with Wizz Air to help our passengers explore Eastern Europe at very reasonable prices from a straightforward, quick and accessible airport.
During a press conference in Debrecen, Jószef Váradi, Wizz Air’s CEO, announced: “Two days ago, we celebrated our 11th anniversary with a new aircraft livery and a refreshed brand as a part of our commitment to constantly improve passengers’ travel experience. Today, I am pleased to make this major announcement for Hungary and the Hajdú-Bihar county. Our Debrecen operating base will make East-Hungary more accessible, further boost tourism and foster economic development in the region. We will create a number of local jobs with Wizz Air and our business partners while doubling our capacity from Debrecen Airport.”
