Wizz Air Launches Luton-Amman, Increases Gatwick-Tel Aviv Flights

LONDON – Wizz Air has made two route announcements pertinent to its overall destination strategy in the Middle East but from the United Kingdom.

The Announcements…


First of all, the carrier has announced a brand new route between London Luton to Amman, Jordan, which will begin on December 13 this year.

The service will begin on a three times per week service operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

The other announcement is regarding the airline’s existing route between London Gatwick and Tel Aviv. From the beginning of November, they will be increasing their frequencies from six weekly to seven weekly.

Geoffroy’s Take…


Commenting on this expanded strategy was Marion Geoffroy, Managing Director at Wizz Air:

“We are thrilled to announce this new route from London Luton to Amman as well as increased frequencies on our existing Gatwick to Tel Aviv route.”

“Amman offers a perfect introduction to the Middle East; whether it’s authentic cuisine, incredible hospitality, or unique architecture, travelers will not be disappointed.”

“We are committed to offering our passengers even more choices for their holidays alongside ultra-low fares and high-quality service. We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard our young, efficient, and sustainable aircraft.”

Wizz Air is Constantly On The Move…


The airline has made a series of announcements regarding expansion in the past couple of months, especially as the airline gears up for a busy Winter season.

Around a month ago, the airline announced plans to exercise the rights to purchase another 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft, as stated in a 15th of September press release.

Bringing the total number of ordered aircraft to 482 aircraft. Wizz Air buys another 75 Airbus A321neo aircraft. This is a huge milestone for both the company and the manufacturer indeed. 

Wizz Air confirms that the purchase rights were already a part of a previous agreement with Airbus, which was subject due to the various confirmation of terms and conditions.

Since then also, Wizz Air has announced plans to launch two new routes from London Luton, with the destinations being Bydgoszcz and Lodz.

Towards the end of September, the airline made a big move in Italy with the announcement of 12 new routes to be launched between the end of this month and the end of April next year.

In the same period, the airline then launched operations from its Maltese subsidiary, with the first flight departing for Rome Fiumicino Airport.

Overall…


It remains clear that Wizz Air’s constant and gradual growth is developing more into a majorly expansive route network that we will see develop further into Winter and next year.

Looking ahead, it’s going to be interesting to see where else Wizz Air chooses to operate, especially with the Airbus A321neos it has in its arsenal.

That, alongside the Wizz Air Abu Dhabi subsidiary, is going to produce some interesting results, especially when deliveries of the A321XLR begin in due course.
