Wizz Air strengthens Baltic presence

The fast-growing low-cost carrier launches operations from Tallinn and new routes from Lithuania and Poland.

Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines, has started operations from the Estonian capital with the commencement of a Tallinn-Kyiv service.

The airline is jumping on the route to Ukraine as the only direct connection between the two capitals, to be operated three times a week.

The eclectic city of Kyiv boasts “a bunch of islands with beaches and parkland”, as the airline puts it in its press release.

Wizz is also announcing a second service from Tallinn on September 17, to its ever-expanding London-Luton base, to be operated four times weekly.

The airline foresees that its operations from Tallinn will represent more than 50,000 seats in 2018.

700 new routes
Overall across its network, between March and July this year 700 new routes are being introduced to its weekly flight schedules.

Two of these are also in the same region in Central Europe – from Poland and Lithuania to the Moroccan holiday destination of Marrakech. Commencing in October, the routes from Warsaw and Vilnius will both be operated twice a week.

Marrakech is the second Moroccan city in the Wizz network of 142 destinations, the other being the resort of Agadir. The carrier now has seven routes to Morocco from five cities in Hungary, Lithuania and Poland.
