September 7 (SeeNews) - Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air said on Thursday it will close its base in Suceava, northern Romania, on October 28, to focus on inbound flying in order to improve timing and minimize cancellations and disruptions.
The airline will instead focus on operating five of its current routes from Suceava on an inbound basis, namely those to London, Rome, Milan, Dortmund, and Memmingen, Wizz Air said in a press release emailed to SeeNews.
"However, we remain committed to supporting continuous growth in Romania. Wizz Air will not leave Suceava and will keep operating over 50% of its previous Suceava capacity to further support connectivity paired with low prices and high-quality experience," said Diarmuid Ó Conghaile, Managing Director of Wizz Air Malta.
The Larnaca, Eindhoven, Brussels, and Paris routes will continue to be served from Wizz Air's base in Iasi, which will benefit from the addition of a fifth aircraft this winter.
Employees at the Suceava base affected by its closure will be offered relocation options elsewhere in the Wizz Air network, the airline said.
The company also said it will announce further developments to its Romanian network in the coming weeks.
Wizz Air operates more than 5,000 flights per month to 24 countries from six Romanian bases - Bucharest, Cluj, Timisoara, Iasi, Craiova, and Sibiu.
