Wizz Air opens base in Venice


Discount airline Wizz Air announced the opening of its seventh Italian base, at Venice Marco Polo airport this week.

The airline will base two Airbus A321neo planes at the airport and offer flights to four destinations in Italy and 12 in nine other countries, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The establishment of Wizz Air’s newest base in Venice Marco Polo airport follows the opening of six bases (Milan Malpensa, Catania, Palermo, Bari, Naples, and Rome Fiumicino) in the past year.

Robert Carey, president of Wizz Air Group said, “I am delighted to announce the establishment of Wizz Air’s base at Venice Marco Polo airport. This is another important milestone for Wizz as well as for our passengers in the region. With our 16 new services to nine countries, building on our existing 10 services to seven countries, we are demonstrating our continued commitment to Italy as we grow both our domestic and international Italian network." 

"The two new, modern, and environmentally sustainable, and 50% less noisy Airbus A321neo aircraft will make sure that Wizz Air protects the gems of Venice and the neighboring areas. Our crew can’t wait to welcome the first passengers onboard our aircraft with a smile," he added.

Wizz Air started flying to Italy in 2004, and since then has carried over 40 million passengers to and from the country.
