New destination before operations start / WIZZ Air is operating to St. Petersburg from September / A 7th route is added to the 6 routes already announced
At least since May WIZZ Air is known among the people in Salzburg – the Hungarian low fare airline has landed in Salzburg and is starting operations from and to the City of Mozart. Before even starting operations in July, the „green“ airline is already adding St. Petersburg to its network. The Russian seaport at the Baltic Sea is a cultural centre for tourists as well as business travelers. Most of the routes WIZZ Air is offering from Salzburg, are destinations, which used to be flown by Austrian Airlines transfer passengers before. Now cities lieke Kiev, Bucharest, Belgrade, Tuzla, Skopje and St. Petersburg can be reached NONSTOP from Salzburg. As an extra-special treat WIZZ is flying to the sunny destination Larnaca in Cyprus.
“I am very pleased that WIZZ Air sees opportunities in Salzburg. Since our catchment area is largely a rural one, the offers of ÖBB to Vienna are attractive for no more than 20% of our guests, namely those living in or near the City of Salzburg. Therefore we expect that many former Austrian Airlines guests are going to fly via hubs like Frankfurt or Istanbul or they will use the NONSTOP flights offered by WIZZ. Unfortunately, there will also be guests driving to Munich by car, which means that we are going to constantly improve our flight program,“ says Christopher Losmann, Divisional Head of Marketing & Sales. The flights can be booked on the airline’s website: www.wizzair.com and in their mobile app. The new routes WIZZ Air offers, generate an additional 250.000 seats on the Salzburg market. The cities chosen, are destinations that have not been offered from Salzburg so far or which could be reached via Vienna. This means high quality travel opportunities at low fares. Tourism and business travelers will both benefit from the destinations offered.
