Wizz Air launches Luton-Bulgaria service

Low-cost carrier Wizz Air will begin London Luton Airport to Plovdiv flights in November

The Hungarian airline plans to operate the service between Luton and Plovdic, Bulgaria’s cultural capital, three times a week. Its addition means Wizz now offers more than 80 destinations from the north London airport.

“We are delighted to announce the addition of another destination to our network from London Luton Airport, Wizz Air’s first and largest base in the UK,” said Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK. “Known as the city of artists, Plovdiv is a vibrant destination offering visitors everything from cultural festivals and weekly markets to trendy restaurants and contemporary galleries.” 

Wizz stated that this new venture further solidifies its position in the UK, following the launch of two new bases at London Gatwick and Doncaster Sheffield, in addition to the inauguration of more than 35 new routes in the UK over the past year.  

Most recently, Luton Airport inaugurated its new training facility at the base which will be used to train Wizz Air pilots situated at the site.
