Wizz Air opens its 28 base in Varna, Bulgaria. The airline has based one of its new Airbus A320 aircraft at Varna Airport, starting six additional low-fare routes from its second Bulgarian base to Dortmund and Munich Memmingen in Germany, Eindhoven in The Netherlands, Larnaca in Cyprus, Milan Bergamo in Italy and Tel Aviv in Israel. With the long-time popular London Luton and recently launched domestic Sofia services, Wizz Air now connects Varna with eight destinations in seven countries.


Wizz Air has now eight aircraft based in Bulgaria, seven at Sofia and one at Varna Airport, employing 300 customer-oriented crew. In the first six months of 2017, more than one million passengers traveled with WIZZ to and from Bulgaria, 39% more than in the same period of the previous year. 

Underlining its commitment to Bulgaria, Wizz Air has recently announced significant expansion of capacity at Sofia Airport from March 2018 adding two new routes and a total of 22 additional weekly flights to its schedule.

Wizz Air now offers 44 routes from its three Bulgarian airports.
