October 18 (SeeNews) - Hungarian-based low-cost airline Wizz Air said on Thursday it will switch its services from the central Romanian city of Targu Mures to the northwestern city of Cluj Napoca as of November 13 due to operational problems at the former.
Wizz Air now flies from Targu Mures to Budapest, Rome, and Barcelona. It will also launch flights from Cluj Napoca to London on October 30 and to Dortmund on 28 February, it said in a statement.
Wizz Air started flying from Targu Mures in July last year and since then severe weather conditions combined with the airport's inability to improve low visibility operations has been jeopardising the airline's schedules, causing delays and cancellations, the company said.
Cluj Airport already has more advanced operational capabilities as well as adequate development plans in place to accommodate Wizz Air's growth by ensuring a smooth operating environment, it added.
Wizz Air also operates flights from Romania's capital Bucharest to Barcelona, Budapest, Dortmund, London, Rome, Liverpool, and Parma. It will launch flights from Bucharest to Valencia on October 29.
Wizz Air flies a young fleet of 180-seat Airbus A320s. With 32 new A320 aircraft on order plus 12 options, Wizz Air's fleet should consist of up to 53 aircraft by 2012. The airline operates flights from Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia and Romania. Wizz Air carried more than three million passengers in 2006.
