A new aircraft stationed in Vienna will allow passengers to fly to Bilbao (Spain) and Kuwait City (Kuwait), also increasing the frequency of several flights.


Wizz Air announced further expansion from Vienna by adding a new aircraft to its base in the Austrian capital, according to a press release.

The low-cost company said the additional aircraft would expand its base to six planes, making it possible for the company to add two new routes. From June 2023, passengers will be able to fly from Vienna to Bilbao, in Spain, and Kuwait City, in Kuwait. 


In addition, the extra capacity will enable Wizz Air to increase the frequency of its flights from Vienna to Madeira, in Portugal, Nice in France, Tel Aviv, in Israel, Riyadh, in Saudi Arabia and Yerevan, in Armenia.
