New flights from Gatwick to Bucharest from Wizz Air

Brits who love getting a bargain budget airline flight have even more choice now that Wizz Air has announced it will begin a direct service from London's Gatwick Airport to Bucharest in June.

New flights from Gatwick to Bucharest from Wizz Air

This will be the only direct connection between the two airports meaning that the airline will offer the only way of flying from the hub south of London to the Romanian capital city.

Two options

Four Wizz Air flights a day will operate on the new Gatwick route, adding a second option for travellers who have previously been able to take one of the carrier’s direct three-times-a-day flights to Bucharest from London Luton.

By adding Gatwick as a new airport for Wizz Air's low-fares services, the company will then be operating out of nine UK destinations. They already fly from Luton, Doncaster-Sheffield, Bristol, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Belfast, Liverpool and Birmingham.

The company's positive impact on the UK economy includes supporting almost 3,750 local jobs in business, leisure and travel industries around the destination airports it services.

30 million passengers

Wizz Air began operating in 2004 and since then has carried almost 30 million passengers through UK airports. Its fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft only have an average age of four years, and the planes carried more than five million people through regional UK airports last year alone.

Chief Corporate Officer at Wizz Air, Owain Jones, said: "This new Wizz Air daily service from Gatwick brings the best low-fare travel option for people travelling between south London or southern England and Bucharest – the only direct flight.

“WIZZ is a leader in opening Central and Eastern European cities for UK business and leisure travellers, offering very low fares from nine UK airports, coupled with Wizz Air's superb on-board service.”

The new Gatwick service means the airline will be the only one to offer a direct service to Bucharest every day from both north and south London.
