The FINANCIAL — Wizz Air on September 5 announced a new route from Budapest to Berlin-Schoenefeld. Commencing on 13 March, the newest WIZZ service will be operated daily.
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.
Today’s announcement follows the commencement of 11 new Budapest routes in 2017. 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, according to Wizz Air.
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.
