Wizz Air has opened a new base at Cardiff Airport, offering nine new trips to Tenerife, Lanzarote, Heraklion, and Corfu.
The airport, which will be the carrier’s fourth in the United Kingdom, will be the carrier’s first in Wales and will result in the creation of almost 300 new jobs in areas such as aviation, transportation, hospitality, and tourism.
Flights to Alicante, Faro, Heraklion, Palma de Mallorca, Larnaca, Lanzarote, and Tenerife will begin in June, with flights to Corfu and Sharm El Sheikh following in November.
Wizz said the move will “boost” the local economy by increasing Cardiff airport’s yearly capacity by more than 330,000 seats.
The airline is presently hiring cabin and flight crew members at the airport, and both experienced and inexperienced cabin crew members are encouraged to apply.
The new facility, according to Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK, will bring a “major boost” to the Welsh economy.
“This is a very exciting time for Wizz Air in the UK, as we celebrate the opening of our highly anticipated base at Cardiff airport.”
“By bringing our new and efficient Airbus aircraft to Cardiff, the wings of which are manufactured in Wales, we are providing a significant boost to the Welsh economy and creating jobs.
“The base, which is our fourth in the UK, will bring further connectivity to the region, with passengers in Wales and the South West of England now able to take advantage of our ultra-low fares to ’fly local’ to their favourite getaways.”
