Together with the existing Wizz Air service to London these routes will deliver approximately 100,000 passengers in the first year and create up to 100 jobs in Debrecen. It was also announced that the airline’s Hungarian winter schedule had been put on sale with 22 routes, 6 more than last year.
Wizz Air’s Debrecen – London route has been popular amongst both business travelers and visitors and today’s two new services to Eindhoven and Milan will further contribute to tourism and job growth in the Debrecen region.
This latest expansion underlines Wizz Air’s commitment to Hungarian aviation and to celebrate this growth tickets from both Budapest and Debrecen to Eindhoven and Milan are now available from just HUF 3,590 (one way, all inclusive) on wizzair.com or by calling 06 90 181 181.
Wizz Air also announced that its Hungarian winter schedule (2012-13) had already been put on sale, consisting of 22 routes compared to 16 operated last winter.
“Only Wizz Air connects Debrecen to Western Europe with very low fares. Instead of driving many hours, business travelers and tourists can now fly directly to/from Eastern Hungary. We are committed to develop an air infrastructure for the residents and help boost tourism and job creation in the region.” - said József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air.
Lajos Kósa, city mayor of Debrecen, said: „The importance of the airport in Debrecen continues to grow as a result of our announcement today, since the launch of the two new flights makes it one of the busiest regional airports in the region. The effect of the earlier announcement of the flights between London-Luton and Debrecen showed that making the best use of the airline connection potential brings huge benefits to the tourism industry of the city and the entire region.”
