 Monday, May 17, 2021 


Wizz Air recently confirmed that it has decided to open a new base in Rome, offering 32 new services to 19 countries. The carrier said this is the biggest number of routes ever announced in one go. The airline will base four Airbus A321neo aircraft at Rome Fiumicino Airport in July. The new services will complement the 25 routes already operating from Rome Fiumicino and Rome Ciampino airports and include two UK routes from Rome to London Luton and Liverpool John Lennon.

The establishment of Wizz Air’s newest 43rd base in Rome Fiumicino follows the opening of four bases (Milan Malpensa, Catania, Palermo and Bari) in Italy in the past year. The carrier mentioned that not only will the opening of the new base in Rome bring more economic growth to the region, but it will also create over 100 new direct jobs with the airline and over 1,500 jobs in associated industries. Routes on offer from Rome include flights to Tel Aviv, Casablanca, Marrakesh, Prague and Tallinn. George Michalopoulos, Chief Commercial Officer, Wizz Air Group said in a statement that he is delighted to announce the newest base in Rome Fiumicino Airport.

He mentioned that the airline has allocated 17 based aircraft to Italy in the last 12 months and will continue to invest in the market, doubling its presence in the next three years by launching further operating bases and new domestic and international routes. He mentioned that the brand new A321neo aircraft as well as the enhanced protective measures will ensure the best possible sanitary conditions for travellers, while operating with the lowest environmental footprint.
