WizzAir announces new routes, fleet expansion in Larnaca aiport

Wizz Air on Monday announced an expansion to its base in Cyprus, with two new Airbus A321neo aircraft.

The allocation of two more aircraft to Wizz Air’s Larnaca base will grow the base to four aircraft. The move brings the number of routes from the base to 32, including the launch of three new routes from Larnaca.

The allocation of these aircraft is enabling the launch of three new routes as well as increased frequency on six routes from Larnaca International Airport, a company press release said.

Passengers will now be able to fly to Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, Wizz Air is increasing the frequency of its flights from the base to Athens, London Luton, Prague, Tel Aviv, Thessaloniki and Yerevan.

“We are delighted to be expanding in Cyprus, demonstrating our commitment to growing our presence in the market by doubling the number of aircraft we will operate from the country. The allocation of these two additional aircraft in Larnaca allows us to further strengthen our market offer, providing our Cypriot customers the opportunity to travel on a total of 32 routes to 18 countries with us and increase the tourism to the island of love as well, connecting Cyprus with so many destinations,” President of Wizz Air, Robert Carey said.

“Adding two more aircraft by Wizz Air to its based fleet at Larnaka Airport is a positive development. It signals the airline’s commitment to Cyprus as an important tourism destination for its European network. We will continue working with Wizz Air to enhance their presence in Cyprus further,” said Eleni Kalogirou, CEO of Hermes Airports.
