February 28 (SeeNews) - The Civil Aeronautic Authority (CAA) of Moldova said that Hungarian low-cost carrier Wizz Air will suspend from March 14 all flights to and from the international airport in the capital Chisinau due to security considerations.
After conducting a risk analysis, the state institutions determined that flights in the national airspace can be carried out safely, in compliance with the respective procedures, and regret the sudden decision taken by Wizz Air, the CAA said in a press release on Monday.
On December 1, Wizz Air closed its airbase in Chisinau for an undetermined period due to concerns over the security of the regional airspace in the context of the war in Ukraine.
Wizz Air reopened its Chisinau base in September after temporarily moving it to the Iasi International Airport in eastern Romania following Russia's invasion of Ukraine on February 24.
Wizz Air started operations from Chisinau International Airport in 2014 and established a base there in 2016.
