Sophia and Bucharest are the two latest destinations to be added by the Hungarian carrier Wizz Air, which is expanding its offering from Malmö Airport. Service between Malmö and Sophia will start up on May 16, while service between Malmö and Bucharest will begin on June 12. Wizz Air will also increase the number of its departures to Skopje from five to seven a week.

With the two new destinations Sophia, Bulgaria, and Bucharest, Romania, Wizz Air now offers nine direct routes from Malmö for a total of 31 departures a week. Its other destinations are Belgrade, Budapest, Gdansk, Katowice, Skopje, Tuzla and Warsaw.

“It is a real pleasure that we have the opportunity to offer our passengers even more low-fare routes to destinations in Europe,” says Peter Weinhandl, airport director at Malmö Airport. “Wizz Air’s expansion continues, and Malmö Airport is now the Swedish airport that has the most departures with Wizz Air.”

Wizz Air will fly to Sophia from Malmö Airport on Mondays and Fridays and to Bucharest on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. The aircraft model used will be an Airbus A320, with seating for 180 passengers.

Tickets can now be purchased, among other places, at www.wizzair.com.

The carrier Wizz Air was founded in September 2003 and specialises in the central and eastern European market. Today, they have 17 bases in a number of countries and fly over 300 routes. Since 2013, Wizz Air has launched service beyond Europe as well, with destinations including Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Baku and Dubai. These flights depart mostly from Budapest-Ferenc Liszt International Airport.
