Wizz Air is launching 18 new routes from Gatwick today, just in time for the Easter travel rush.
With the reopening of the airport’s South Terminal, the budget airline will be able to offer a total of 25 itineraries.
Bari, Bourgas, Faro, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Rome, Palma, Larnaca, Varna, Venice, Vienna, Catania, Podgorica, Tel Aviv, Chania, Mykonos, and Funchal are among the new routes, which are available on a seasonal or year-round basis.
One-way prices to Italy’s Bari, Milan, Naples, Palermo, and Venice, as well as Austria’s Vienna, start at £8.99.
The airline began operations at Gatwick Airport in October 2020, creating 210 new direct employment.
Wizz Air purchased 15 daily slot pairs at Gatwick in December, bringing the total number of Airbus A321neo aircraft to five.
At Gatwick, the airline is hiring cabin and flight crew members and will host a series of open recruitment days in April.
Marion Geoffroy, UK managing director, said: “Today’s route launches signify the start of an exciting new chapter for Wizz Air UK at Gatwick airport as we embark on the summer travel season.
“Through this significant expansion we are reaffirming our commitment to providing low-fare connectivity to our customers in London and the south of England – and we want them to know that Wizz is here to stay.
“The lifting of all Covid-19 travel restrictions is an extremely positive development for the travel industry and passengers alike, with customers once again being able to travel hassle-free to their favourite destinations.”
Jonathan Pollard, Gatwick’s chief commercial officer, added: “Wizz’s expansion and commitment to Gatwick marks the start of an exciting time for the airport as well as the airline, coinciding with the reopening of Gatwick’s South Terminal.
“Wizz’s growing range of destinations is excellent news for passengers across London and the south-east, providing more choice and competition to in-demand destinations.
“Importantly, it’s also fantastic news for the local economy, with more than 200 jobs created as a direct result of the new services.”
