November 16 (SeeNews) - Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air said on Thursday it is expecting 40% growth in the number of passengers on Bulgarian routes in 2017.
In the first 10 months of 2017, more than 2 million passengers chose Wizz Air for their trips to and from Bulgaria, which is a 43% increase compared to the same period last year, the company said in a statement.
"In 2018 we will expand our seat capacity to 3.6 million, an increase of more than 1 million compared to 2017. We are motivated to continue to grow in Bulgaria. That's why from March next year we are launching four new routes from Bulgaria," Gabor Vasarhelyi, Wizz Air's Corporate Communications Manager said in the statement.
The four new routes will connect the capital Sofia with Nice, Lisbon, Malaga and Athens.
Starting from March, the low-cost airline will increase the number of its flights on eight of its most popular routes which include London Luton, Barcelona, Eindhoven, Rome Fiumicino, Tel Aviv, Copenhagen, Brussels Charleroi and Larnaca.
Wizz Air has a market share of over 30% in Bulgaria, offering 32 routes from and to 17 countries.
