Low-cost European carrier WIZZ Air ramps up expansion in Israel

The new routes will provide service to Eilat from Riga (Latvia), Katowice (Poland), Prague (Czech Republic) and Bucharest (Romania) beginning in the winter of 2017.

The routes will supplement 18 other connections that are already offered by the low-cost European carrier to Tel Aviv and Eilat. Tickets for the new flights are already on sale.

“Today’s announcement is further underlining WIZZ’s commitment to the Israeli market and its continuous expansion since the first WIZZ flight from Tel Aviv in 2012,” the airline said in a statement, attributing the expansion to “growing demand” for its services in the Israeli marketplace. 

In 2017, WIZZ will offer 12 new services from Tel Aviv and Eilat Ovda airports, expanding its flights from Israel to 22 routes in 9 countries throughout Europe.
