Wizz Air to begin Ljubljana flightsThe low cost airline Wizz Air will launch flights from London Luton Airport and Brussels South Charleroi to the Slovenian capital from the start of the 2012/2013 winter season. The service from Brussels will operate twice per week while flights from the British capital will see three weekly flights. Currently, Adria Airways operates services to Luton Airport, although the flights run on a seasonal basis until the end of summer. Another low cost airline, easyJet, operates year round flights to Stansted Airport and will compete with Wizz on flights to the British capital. On the other hand, Adria currently holds a monopoly on flights to Brussels, although Wizz Air will be flying to Charleroi Airport, some 45 kilometres from the Belgian capital.
Daniel de Carvalho, the Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air says, “We are excited about this new route from London-Luton to Slovenia, which in the current recession really is something to celebrate. We are focused on delivering value for money flights for business people and tourists travelling to/from London and this new route to the Slovenian capital means that these travellers can now take advantage of low fares on yet another Wizz Air route”.
Wizz Air operated flights from both Brussels and London to Ljubljana back in 2006 but failed to attract too much interest to keep the routes going. Services from Brussels Charleroi will launch on October 29 with details available here. A day later flights from London will be inaugurated with more information available here. Tickets are already on sale.
