Gateway to Transylvania opens from Billund

Wizz Air announces another new route from central Denmark – its fourth connecting Billund with Romania.

Wizz Air has today announced yet another new route from Denmark, this time between Billund and Timisoara in western Romania starting from September 3.

With two weekly frequencies on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the budget carrier connects central Denmark and the home of Lego with Romania’s third biggest city.

Lying close to the north-western corner of Romania, Wizz describes Timisoara as “a historical Transylvanian city”, which will also be European Capital of Culture in 2021.

The airline gushes that “the city’s urban area, the soothing parks and the beautifully restored public squares present the encounter of culture and tradition”.

Wizz Air now offers a total of 11 routes to six countries from Billund Airport, and Timisoara is the fourth Romanian city directly connected with Billund besides Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Iasi.

Half million
The airline’s first Billund flight took off in 2015 and since then it has carried more than 500,000 passengers to and from the airport.

Last year it carried more than 400,000 passengers on its Danish routes, which represents growth of 38% year-on-year. It claims that throughout the country its operations last year supported more than 300 jobs in associated industries.

Timisoara is “one of the most interesting Romanian cities”, says András Radó, corporate communications manager at Wizz Air.

“It is a perfect destination for a weekend break or even for a longer trip, offering a relaxing atmosphere. We are confident that our Danish customers will enjoy visiting this splendid city.”

Right now Wizz Air operates a fleet of 106 Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft, and offers more than 600 routes from 26 bases, connecting 145 destinations across 44 countries.
