Wizz Air has announced enhancements to its low fare route network in both Romania and Italy, according to Routes-News.com.From November 1, the Central and Eastern European (CEE) low-cost airline will begin operating twice-weekly flights from Timisoara to Bari and from Cluj-Napoca to Bari (from March 14, 2015).
The coastal city of Bari is a popular sightseeing destination in Italy’s Puglia region. With heritage sites such as the Basilica di San Nicole and the Castello Svevo, Bari has proven attractive to both sun-seekers and those wanting an authentic experience of Italian culture and history.
Wizz Air said that it was “confident that its passengers from Romania would enjoy visiting the Adriatic Sea and the province of Bari, while Italian travellers can discover more of the Romanian regions.”
Aeroportsi di Puglia’s Giuseppe Acierno, commented: “The Timisoara route is poised to become very popular for business travellers and Romanian’s working in the Apulia region.”
Timisoara is one of Romania’s largest cities and has grown to become an important economic, social and cultural hub for the Western part of the country. The city is also a candidate to become the European Capital of Culture in 2021.
Cluj-Napoca is often referred to as the unofficial capital to the historic province of Transylvania, and is a major academic, industrial, cultural and economic centre for Romania.
Operated by A320 aircraft, these new routes brings Wizz Air’s Bari network to five – with Timisoara and Cluj-Napoca joining Bucharest, Budapest and Prague.
