A new low-cost airline in Copenhagen

Wizz Air to launch flights from March 2016
For the first time, the biggest low-cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe is opening a route to Copenhagen. The new route, to the Macedonian capital Skopje, will launch on March 22 with two flights a week.
Europe’s fourth largest low-cost carrier, based in Hungary, will operate an Airbus A320 with 180 passenger seats. This is a small beginning, but if Wizz’s past record at other airports is anything to go by, fast expansion is to be expected.
“This means that all of Europe’s major low-cost airlines are now flying to Copenhagen: easyJet, Norwegian, Ryanair, Transavia, Vueling, and soon so too Wizz Air,” said Peter Krogsgaard, commercial director at Copenhagen Airports. “Macedonia is quite an unexplored area of Europe.”
Last year Wizz Air had 16.5 million passengers. Its 64 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft serve 116 destinations in 38 countries, primarily in Eastern Europe. Wizz ordered in the autumn 147 Airbus A321neo for delivery by 2024. In Denmark, it already flies to Billund from Gdansk and Vilnius.
