Wizz Air will start new routes this winter linking Tel Aviv with Vilnius, Katowice and Cluj-Napoca. This air company currently flies to Tel Aviv from Budapest and Bucharest.Flights to Vilnius (VNO) and Cluj-Napoca (CLK) begin in late October. Katowice (KTW) joins Wizz’s route map in late November.
Wizz will fly twice-weekly to Vilnius and Cluj-Napoca and three times a week to Katowice.
Daniel de Carvalho, corporate communications manager, said Vilnius, Katowice and Cluj-Napoca are popular destinations for Israeli tourists.
“We are confident that the influx of tourists to the city of Tel Aviv will bring many benefits,” he said.
“After success with Budapest and Bucharest… we expect similar interest from our customers in our new proposals.”
Israel ratified a Common Aviation Area (CAA) agreement with Europe in April opening up flights to the country from across the EU.
For Cluj-Napoca airport, which serves Romania’s second largest city, the new route introduces scheduled services beyond Europe.
