BUCHAREST (Romania), October 3 (SeeNews) - The Romanian unit of Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air said on Friday it is launching a new route from capital Bucharest to Italy's Lamezia Terme starting March 26, 2017.

The new route will be operated twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays, the company said in a statement.

Lamezia Terme, population about 70,000 inhabitants, is a city in Italy's southern province of Catanzaro, in the Calabria region.
