Wizz Air Suspends Operations at Albania's Kukes Airport
Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air has suspended all of its flights to and from the Kukes airport in northern Albania only a year after introducing operations, citing difficulties in the operating environment, according to local news portal seenews.com.
The airline said it had previously notified affected customers via e-mail and offered either a 120% refund of the original fare in airline credit, a 100% cash refund, or an alternative flight.
In June, Wizz Air announced the addition of 10 new routes from Albania's main commercial aviation terminal, Tirana International Airport, including a new direct line to Bulgaria.
"Wizz Air remains committed to long-term growth in Albania, creating hundreds of jobs while also stimulating the tourism and hospitality industries," the carrier told SeeNews.
