January 28, 2022 – Wizz Air will launch four new routes to its London Gatwick base from Burgas, Varna, Venice and Palermo this spring.

Wizz Air further develops position at Gatwick

At the same time, the carrier has increased frequencies on the recently announced new routes to Larnaca, Milan and Vienna.

The announcement follows the acquisition of 15 daily slot pairs at Gatwick and the launch of 14 new routes from spring onwards.

This further expansion means that Wizz Air will be operating a total of 25 routes for the summer season.

The expansion at the airport, combined with the decision to adjust the airport slots usage ratio to 70:30 for the summer 2022 season, reinforces Wizz’s intention to fully utilise these slots at maximum capacity and demonstrates the airlines’ long-term commitment to the airport and surrounding region.

From June 13th, the carrier will launch five flights a week to the seaside resort of Varna in Bulgaria, and from June 15th, will fly four times a week to Burgas, a large port city on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast. 

Not only is Wizz Air launching an additional four new routes, the airline is also increasing the frequency of its flights to Larnaca, Milan and Vienna from daily to twice daily on most days.

From the end of March, all of Wizz Air’s flights from Italy to London will be operating into London Gatwick, providing excellent, low-fare connectivity for passengers between the two countries. 

Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said: “Today marks another important step in our continued expansion at Gatwick, following the announcement of our acquisition of new slots at the airport.

“We have continued to call for the full reinstatement of the original 80:20 slot usage rules and welcome the government’s recent decision to adjust the ratio to 70:30, so we can continue to take up new market opportunities and provide even more low-fare opportunities for our customers, supporting the recovery of the aviation sector, associated industries, and local economies.”
