Wizz Air adds six more routes from Tirana

Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing low-cost airline, says it is allocating its fourth aircraft to its Tirana base. It will join the Wizz Air’s base in Tirana International Airport on May 28, 2021. This will enable the start of direct routes from Tirana to Malmö and Stockholm in Sweden. In addition, the fourth aircraft will operate flights to Ancona, Pescara, Genova and Rome Ciampino airport.

“TIA welcomes the fourth aircraft of Wizz Air base here in Tirana. This new development gives us the opportunity to reach more destinations in Europe on a regular basis. It will open up new markets and hopefully after the pandemic times will allow all of us to travel. The Albanians will have more chances to connect with European cities for tourism, economic or social purposes,” says Volker Wendefeuer, Tirana International Airport COO.

WizzAir will offer over 1200000 seats in 2021
“Today we have some great news for Albanian travelers and those who wish to visit this beautiful country. Less than a year after announcing the establishment of our Tirana base, I can announce the fourth Tirana-based aircraft. Also, six additional low fare routes connecting Albania with the rest of Europe. The WIZZ team is developing its presence in Albania. With our biggest ever network of 27 routes from Tirana, we offer ever more affordable travel opportunities,” says George Michalopoulos, WizzAir COO.

Budget carrier Wizz Air announced the opening of its Tirana base less than a year ago. It allocated three aircraft and adding fifteen routes to the airline’s Tirana network.

Wizz Air’s history in Albania dates back four years when the first flight landed in April 2017 from Budapest. The airline has carried over 650 thousand passengers to and from Albania since it entered the market. Together with the six new routes, Wizz Air will offer over 1200000 seats in the airline’s Tirana network in 2021.

The tickets are already on sale on the website and in the airline’s mobile app with fares starting as low as EUR 19.99.
