Wizz Air announces today further expansion from Vienna, allocating one more Airbus A321neo aircraft to its base in Austria’s capital city. The allocation of the new aircraft is enabling the launch of two new routes from Vienna, starting from June 2023, as well as increased frequency on five routes from Vienna International Airport. The tickets are already available at wizzair.com or on the Wizz Air’s mobile app.
The allocation of an additional aircraft to Wizz Air’s Vienna base will grow the base to six aircraft. The move brings the total number of the airline’s routes from Vienna to 38, including two newly launched. Passengers will now be able to fly with Wizz Air from Vienna to Bilbao (Spain) and Kuwait City (Kuwait). Furthermore, the additional capacity allows Wizz Air to increase the frequency of its flights from the base to Madeira (Portugal), Nice (France), Tel Aviv (Israel), Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and Yerevan (Armenia).
Robert Carey, President of Wizz Air, said at the press conference: “Austria is an important market for Wizz Air and remains in our focus for continuous investment. Following today’s celebration of the first flights from Vienna to Jeddah and Riyadh, we are pleased to announce an addition of one more aircraft, growing Wizz Air’s Vienna base to six aircraft. With the new aircraft, we will expand our route network with two new routes to Kuwait City and Bilbao, increase frequency on five routes and add capacity of 350,000 seats for the Austrian market. This expansion further strengthens Wizz Air’s commitment to the Austrian market, operating Vienna’s only all-NEO fleet. We now offer the total of 38 routes to and from Vienna, providing connections to 25 countries in Europe and beyond.”
Wizz Air ambitious growth up to 2030
Wizz Air has already opened three new bases in 2022, added over 230 new routes to its network and 34 aircraft to its fleet, continuing to pursue an ambitious growth strategy.

By 2030, Wizz Air aims to employ 20,000 people and offer up to 2,000 people a year a promising and exciting job.
