Wizz Air continues to expand in Italy, expanding its offering with 16 new routes and opening its seventh base in Italy at Venice Marco Polo International Airport, MTI reports. Wizz Air will be present in one of the most important aviation markets in Italy with two Airbus A321neo aircraft, taking passengers to nine countries with four new domestic flights and 12 international flights to offer the widest possible range of destinations.
Wizz Air began operations in Italy in 2004 and has since transported more than 40 million passengers on flights to and from Italy on more than 200 routes.
Venice Marco Polo International Airport is the seventh in a row of Italian bases established last year, after Milan Malpensa, Catania, Palermo, Bari, Naples and Rome Fiumicino. The opening of the base can not only mean economic growth for the region, but also create 70 jobs within the airline and provide more than 800 jobs in related industries.
Sixteen new destinations can be reached with two Airbus A321neo aircraft, including major cities such as Cagliari, Naples, Lamezia Terme, Lampedusa, Casablanca, Reykjavik, Mykonos, Santorini, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Palma de Mallorca, Tallinn, London Luton and Tell. Aviv Prague and Sharm El Sheikh.
Wizz Air closed at a loss last year due to the pandemic, but they were already anticipating a summer rebound earlier this year. And the company expected in February that its production capacity would exceed 80 percent last year.
