The FINANCIAL -- Wizz Air announced on 5 September a new route from Budapest to Berlin-Schoenefeld.
The daily service was initially set for a 13 March, 2018 launch. However, due to huge popular demand as evidenced by only one day of bookings, WIZZ decided to bring forward the launch date to 18 December 2017, according to Wizz Air.
Seats on the route are already on sale and can be booked on wizzair.com or via the WIZZ mobile app from just HUF 2,990*, which includes a free hand luggage allowance of up to 55x40x23cm maximum dimensions.
Berlin, the capital of Germany and the country's largest city, is a major center of politics, culture, media, and science. It is best known for its internationalism and tolerance, lively nightlife, plenty of sites of historical interest, rich cultural heritage, and numerous world-class museums including those centered around Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The convenient daily schedule of Wizz Air’s new route allows for short city breaks or business trips as well as longer visits to explore Berlin and the beautiful Brandenburg region.
The most recent announcement follows the commencement of 11 new Budapest routes in 2017. In addition to the Berlin route, the airline will launch three more Budapest services this year connecting the Hungarian capital with Bordeaux, Agadir and Frankfurt, while flights to Stavanger and Basel will commence in spring 2018. Together with Berlin, starting from 2017 Wizz Air is adding a total of 17 exciting destinations to its Budapest network, which now consists of 67 low-fare routes.
Being the hometown airline of Hungary, Wizz Air currently operates flights from two Hungarian bases in Budapest and Debrecen with a total of 12 aircraft in the country, and two more aircraft to join the Budapest fleet in 2018, increasing the capacity on routes from Hungary to 5,5 million seats. In the past 12 months, more than 4 million passengers flew with WIZZ to and from Hungary, which represents a 17% growth year over year.
WIZZ now offers 74 routes from its two Hungarian airports.
