Wizz Air's 1st Debrecen-Istanbul Flight Takes Off

Transport

Discount airline Wizz Air has launched its first flight between Debrecen and Istanbul, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

Istanbul is the second city in Turkey to be directly accessible from Debrecen, after Antalya. The first flight from Debrecen to the Turkish city took off on April 14.

"Once again, we have reached another milestone in the life of the airport, as we welcome the launch of a new destination. We are confident of the success of the Istanbul flight, with the first flight already operating at close to 90% load factor. We are committed to making more flights available in the future to serve the travel needs of Debrecen and the region," said Tamás Király, managing director of Debrecen International Airport Kft.

"This flight development is important from both a tourism and an economic point of view. It will provide access to any point in the world to the east via Istanbul Airport, but it will also make Debrecen a destination for tourists from all over the world. This in turn will enhance the quality of services in Debrecen and thus generate additional revenue for Debrecen businesses.
Due to the growing number of passengers, the airport's improvements have come to the forefront, primarily for the comfort of passengers: we are making improvements worth nearly HUF 600 million by installing new passenger security equipment and expanding the terminal," said Diána Széles, Deputy Mayor of Debrecen.

"Our routes to Turkey are really popular, so it is a pleasure to launch another direct flight to Istanbul, this time from Debrecen. Together with our new flight, we now fly four different routes from Hungary to Turkey, which shows our commitment to strengthening economic and tourism relations between the two countries. We look forward to welcoming as many passengers as possible on our flights between Debrecen and Istanbul," said Zsuzsa Trubek, communications manager of Wizz Air.
