Wizz Air today announced a new route from its Debrecen base to Moscow. The newest WIZZ route will commence on 18 December and will be operated with two weekly flights, on Mondays and Fridays. Seats are already on sale with fares starting from as low as HUF 8,990.
The new Debrecen service is already the third route to Russia in WIZZ’s ever-growing Hungarian network. Since 2013, the airline already connects Budapest with Moscow with a daily flight and just recently launched a Saint-Petersburg service from the Hungarian capital, which stimulates incoming tourism to Hungary with more travelers willing to discover the country as well as plan a multi-city European journey on Wizz Air’s low fares.
Being the hometown airline of Hungary, Wizz Air currently operates flights from two Hungarian bases in Budapest and Debrecen with a total of 12 aircraft in the country, and two more aircraft to join the Budapest fleet in 2018, increasing the capacity on routes from Hungary to 5,5 million seats. In the past 12 months, more than 4 million passengers flew with WIZZ to and from Hungary, 17% more year over year.
With 15 new services commencing this year, and two more in 2018, WIZZ now offers 73 routes from its two Hungarian airports.
