Air France and Wizz Air announce fresh expansions

Air France has revealed it will operate a daily service to Bergen from Paris-Charles de Gaulle for the 2018 summer season, as well as from Paris to Cork and Wroclaw.

The routes will start from May 26 and will be operated daily. Paris-Bergen will have afternoon flight departure times.

This means that Air France and its new millennial-targeting carrier Joon will operate 25 flights per week to Norway from Paris during the 2018 summer season – a daily flight to Bergen operated by Air France and 18 weekly flights to Oslo operated by Joon.

The latter replaces Air France operating 17 weekly flights to Oslo during the current 2017-18 winter season.

Flights to Vienna
Meanwhile, the budget carrier Wizz Air is continuing its expansion by investing €277 million in setting up a new base at Vienna and launching 17 new routes from the Austrian capital in 2018.

One Airbus A320 will be based in Vienna from June, with two A321s added in November. With these it will operate 69 weekly flights from Vienna by the end of the year, adding 450,000 seats to the Austrian market.

Billund and Bergen will be among Wizz’s new Vienna routes starting in November along with Dortmund, Kutaisi, Larnaca, Nis, Ohrid, Tenerife and Thessaloniki.

Before that, the first routes to launch will be Vienna to Gdansk, Tuzla and Varna in April, then Bari, Malta, Rome, Valencia and Tel Aviv will be added in June.

All these routes bring Wizz Air’s total tally to 145 destinations in 44 countries.
