Wizz Air will make Venice its seventh Italian base, where they will be placed due Airbus A321neo and introduced four new domestic connections and 12 international destinations to nine countries.
The Marco Polo of Venice thus joins the six Wizz Air bases already active in our country (Milan Malpensa, Catania, Palermo, Bari, Naples and Rome Fiumicino). «This step represents a further important milestone for Wizz and for our Venetian passengers – he declared Robert Carey, president of the Wizz Air group -. With our 16 new services to 9 countries, in addition to our 10 existing services to 7 countries, we are demonstrating our continuous commitment to Italy, while we are growing our national and international network in the country ».
The opening of the new base in Venice will also create over 70 new direct jobs with the airline and over 800 jobs in related industries. The two Airbus A321neo will support operations on 16 routes to Cagliari, Naples, Lamezia Terme, Lampedusa, Casablanca, Reykjavik, Mykonos, Santorini, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Palma de Mallorca, Tallinn, London Luton, Tel Aviv, Prague, Sharm el Sheikh.
The low cost will connect Venice with 3 new ones destinations, currently not served, such as Reykjavik, Tallinn and Fuerteventura; Wizz Air already operates 10 services from Venice Marco Polo Airport to Catania, Tirana, Chisinau, Skopje, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Iasi, Timisoara, St. Petersburg and Kyiv Zhulyany.
The Marco Polo of Venice therefore becomes an increasingly popular low cost airport: historic base of Volotea and easyJet hub, in the coming months it will also see Ryanair and Wizz Air positioned here. The challenge is open.
