Wizz Air opens new route to Venice from Prague
3 September 2009
Wizz Air, the low cost low fare airline for Central and Eastern Europe has announced that it will launch a new service between Italy and the Czech Republic. Flights from Prague to Venice/Treviso will be launched on 20 September and operated 3 times a week. The new services will complement the already announced routes operated from the Ruzyne Airport to 15 in total.
Wizz Air remains committed to the Czech market. The customers now benefit from the lowest fare guarantee that the airline introduced in response to the economic downturn. Wizz Air has been continuously adding new routes and increasing frequencies on the existing ones and as it was announced previously, the airline will base two of its brand new Airbus A320 aircraft in the Czech capital in the course of the next two weeks. In August, Wizz Air will retain 19% of the total LCC market in Prague, taking the second position and it is well on track to become the largest low cost airline in the Czech Republic in 2010.
“We aimed at becoming the low cost airline of choice for the Czech Republic right from the start. Should competing airlines airlines go bust Wizz Air will step up and replace them. Effectively we have been already doing so.” – said John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air.
One way all inclusive fares start from as low as EUR 12.49. Flights can be booked at wizzair.com or via the call centres.
Wizz Air carried over 6,5 million passengers in the last 12 months. The airline's fleet is currently consisting of 25 Airbus A320 aircraft operating from 10 bases in Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine. The 11th base will be opened in Prague on 27 June 2009.
