European ultra-low-cost carrier Wizz Air will add a new ultra-low-fare route from London Luton Airport to Brasov in Romania in August.

From 2 August 2023, Wizz Air will launch flights three times a week from London Luton Airport (LTN) to a new destination in its network, Brasov.

With over 60 services now operating from London Luton, Wizz Air is the largest operator at the airport currently.

Brasov, Romania

Known as one of the best-preserved medieval cities in Europe, Brasov is often referred to as the ‘gateway to Transylvania’. Home to Bran Castle, also known as Dracula Castle, the city is brimming with history, lively cafes, and charming streets.

From hiking up to the panoramic views of Mount Tampa to dining along the Strada Republicii, there is something for every traveller in Brasov.

Marion Geoffroy, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK, said: “We are pleased to announce the addition of another exciting route from London Luton Airport, as we offer our customers even more opportunities to discover unique destinations across Europe.”

“Brasov is the perfect destination for customers looking to discover a new city that is filled with incredible medieval architecture and picturesque views.”

“We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard our young, efficient, and sustainable aircraft as they head off for their next holiday abroad.”

Recent route service additions

Wizz Air recently celebrated the launch of new routes from London Luton Airport and Gatwick Airport to Istanbul in Türkiye. Previously added routes also included Amman, Bydgoszcz, and Lodz.

The inaugural flights from London Luton Airport and Gatwick Airport departed last month on March 28, with flights from both airports now operating daily to Türkiye’s largest city, Istanbul.

This comes amidst a flurry of airline activity as travel demand continues to see a healthy rise. Wizz Air now offers nearly 30 routes from Gatwick and over 60 routes from Luton, where it is the largest operator.

The carrier now connects London Luton airport with 27 countries, operating 63 destinations and 63 routes, carrying over 6 million passengers in 2022.
