The two Greek cities are among the 11 new destinations to seven countries from the carrier’s new base, which was announced on Thursday.
“After ten years of successful operations to Larnaca International Airport, I am delighted to announce our newest base here, as we see the potential and the demand for low cost travel in Cyprus which is one of the most popular and rapidly developing tourist destinations,” Wizz Air Group CEO József Váradi said during a press conference in Larnaca.
The airline will base two Airbus A320 aircraft at Larnaca airport in July.
The eleven new routes to seven countries from Larnaca starting from July are to Athens, Thessaloniki (Greece), Billund, Copenhagen (Denmark), Dortmund, Memmingen, Karlsruhe/Baden Baden (Germany), Salzburg (Austria), Suceava (Romania), Turku (Finland) and Wroclaw (Poland).
It is noted that the countries are on the government’s list for permitted arrivals in Cyprus following the Covid-19 pandemic.
Wizz Air has introduced enhanced health and safety measures in and out of its cabin, which include all wearing face masks, thorough daily cleaning of its aircraft, offering sanitizing wipes and social distancing rules.
Seats on the new routes can already be booked on the airline’s website.
