The low-cost airline Wizz Air has opened its first base in Burgas, which is its third in the country. The company will base one Airbus A320 at the Burgas Airport on a seasonal basis - for the months between June and September 2021. By establishing this new base, Wizz Air now operates flights to 16 destinations from the Black Sea city, 10 of which are new and will become operational this month. Tickets are already available.

The Airbus A320 plane that Wizz Air will base at the Burgas Airport will service some of the 10 new destinations - to Dortmund, Eindhoven, Kiev, Liverpool, Poznan, Tel Aviv, Turku, Gdansk, Lublin and Doncaster (Sheffield Airport). The rest of the routes in Wizz Air's Burgas network to be serviced this summer are London (Luton Airport), Vienna, Budapest, Katowice, Warsaw and Wroclaw, with a total of 250,000 available tickets for flights from Burgas in 2021.

Wizz Air launched its Bulgarian operations in 2005, when the first flight from Sofia to Budapest was carried out. Over the last 16 years, the airline has transported more than 19 million passengers to and from Bulgaria.
