The new routes to Sofia and Warsaw will be serviced four times a week, said Wizz Air’s communications manager Sorina Ratz.

“They’ll expand the mutual development of tourism,” Ratz added, as quoted by TASR.

Moreover, Wizz Air will increase the number of flights to Kiev and Skopje, from the current two to four a week.
