Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in central and eastern Europe, continues to add new routes from Bratislava. On March 10, when it celebrated the first year of its operation at Bratislava airport, it announced a new low-fare route from Bratislava to the Bulgarian capital of Sofia. Its service will commence on June 30 and will be operated four times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.

“Sofia is a dynamic European capital and it is becoming a very attractive destination,” said Sorina Ratz, communications Manager at Wizz Air, at a press conference on March 10, as cited by the TASR newswire.

The route may be interesting to business passengers as well as tourists.

“We really wanted to launch this route and for us it is a completion of the southern-eastern sector on which Bratislava airport is focused in the development of its routes,” said Ivan Trhlík, general director of the Bratislava airport.

Last March Wizz Air started operations from Bratislava International Airport, launching its first flight to Skopje.
