The FINANCIAL — Wizz Air on September 20 announced a new route from Sofia to sunny Malaga.

Malaga is a port city on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, which is renowned for its beautiful landscapes, fabulous beaches, rich cultural heritage and excellent cuisine. Enjoying an annual average of nearly 3000 hours of sunshine, Costa del Sol is a popular holiday destination all year round.
Following the recent addition of Nice and Lisbon to its Sofia network, Malaga is already the 3 sunny destination WIZZ will connect with the Bulgarian capital from next March. With the Bratislava, Catania and domestic Varna services, which all have commenced this year, Wizz Air now offers 33 low-fare routes from its Sofia base, according to Wizz Air.
Wizz Air’s first Bulgarian flight took off from Sofia in September 2005. Since then, the airline has become the market leader in the country and carried over 10 million passengers from and to its three Bulgarian airports: Sofia, Varna and Bourgas, while constantly expanding its operations.
Wizz Air has now eight aircraft based in Bulgaria, seven at Sofia and one at Varna Airport, employing 300 customer-oriented crew. In the first eight months of 2017, over 1.6 million passengers traveled with WIZZ to and from Bulgaria, 40% more than in the same period of the previous year. With its extensive network, the airline’s operations supports more than 1300** indirect jobs in associated industries in 2017.
With its newest Malaga route, Wizz Air now offers 43 routes from its three Bulgarian airports.
Gabor Vasarhelyi, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: “Following the recent announcement of our new Lisbon and Nice routes, we are delighted to add another sunny destination to our ever-growing Sofia network. Malaga is now available on our low fares and we are sure customers will enjoy visiting the year-round sunny Costa Del Sol, which is a perfect choice for an active yet relaxing holiday.
