Wizz Air to open base in Catania
Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air will open a base in Catania, on Sicily's east coast, in October, the company told MTI.
Wizz Air said it will put two Airbus A321 aircraft into service at the airport of the Italian city, from where it was already flying to 15 destinations. With the opening of its new base the airline will expand its list of destinations to include Rome, Bologna, Venice, Memmingen, in Bavaria, Germany, and London Luton Airport.
The first Wizz Air flight from Catania took off in 2009, with the airline having transported more than 1.5 million passengers to and from the Sicilian city since then.
