Starting in July 2019 Wizz Air launches direct flights from Copenhagen Airport to Varna, Bulgaria. Flights will be performed twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The new route will become Wizz Air’s 7th route at Copenhagen Airport. In addition to Varna, Wizz Air also flies to Skopje, Sofia, Sibiu, Kiev as well as Chiṣinău from Copenhagen, and this coming spring, as mentioned, Lviv will be added to that list.
With Wizz Air’s new route there will be 4 weekly departures to Varna for a brief period over the summer months next year, as Norwegian also has flights to the city during the summer. Wizz Air’s route is a year-round service.
With its 366,000 inhabitants, Varna is Bulgaria’s third largest city following the capital, Sofia, and Plovdiv. The city is known as Bulgaria’s maritime capital and is a historic city dating back to the 6th century B.C. For 3 millennia it has been of great economic and strategic significance for the area.
Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast is a popular tourist destination for many Danes, where the pleasant climate and high temperatures, both in the air and water, makes it an attractive holiday destination.
