Wizz Air opens up seven routes from its newest base in Georgia – also adds a new route from both Budapest and Kaunas.
- Wizz Air commenced operations from its 25th base during the course of the last two weeks, with it stationing one A320 at Kutaisi (KUT) in Georgia. Along with the aircraft, the airline also opened up routes from the airport to seven destinations, namely: Berlin Schönefeld (SXF), Memmingen (FMM), Larnaca (LCA), Sofia (SOF), Thessaloniki (SKG), Dortmund (DTM) and Milan/Bergamo (BGY). It should be noted that from 5 October the route to Bergamo will switch to Milan Malpensa. Wizz Air, before opening its Kutaisi base, already linked the Georgian airport to Budapest, Katowice, Vilnius and Warsaw Chopin. As well as the base opening, Wizz Air has also added a further two routes to its network, with the most significant being the hub connection between Budapest (BUD) and Bucharest (OTP). Launched on 21 September, this is the only route that links the Romanian base with another Wizz Air base, as confirmed by anna.aero’s recently analysis of the hub. It is also the only one of Wizz Air’s latest routes that will face direct competition. The average sector length of the new routes is 1,855 kilometres, with the average weekly frequency being 2.3.
