The low-cost airline Wizz Air will launch new regular flights to the city of Cluj-Napoca in Romania as of March 2017. The flights will be dispatched twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, the SITA newswire reported.

Cluj-Napoca is the biggest city in the historical province of Transylvania.

“With five regular routes the airline Wizz Air will become the second most important air carrier at Bratislava airport next year, after Ryanair,” said Ivan Trhlík, the airport’s head, as quoted by SITA.

Wizz Air launched its first regular flight route from Bratislava to Skopje, Macedonia in March 2016. It will add another one, to Kiev, on December 17. Moreover, it will start the operation of flights to Tuzla in Bosnia Herzegovina as of March 27, 2017. All of these flights will be operated twice a week.

The last regular flight will be launched on June 30, 2017, to Warsaw in Poland, with planes being dispatched four times a week, SITA wrote.

As well as Bratislava, Wizz Air also operates three regular flights from Košice (to London-Luton, Bristol and Doncaster), and one from Poprad (to London-Luton).
