August 4, 2022, Sofia Wizz Air, the fastest growing low-cost airline in Europe, and the leading airline in Bulgaria, today announces further expansion at Sofia Airport, with the addition of a seventh Airbus aircraft to its fleet, two new routes and increased frequencies on twelve existing routes.

At today’s joint press conference with Sofia Airport and in the presence of Irena Georgieva, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Wizz Air also announced that it will increase the frequency of its flights to 12 Sofia routes. From today, passengers will have a greater choice of flights from Bulgaria’s capital to Abu Dhabi, Barcelona, Basel, Copenhagen, Brussels Charleroi, Eindhoven, Geneva, Frankfurt Hahn, Madrid, Nice, Tel Aviv and Memmingen/Munich West.

The first WIZZ flight from Bulgaria took off in May 2004. Since then, the airline has become the market leader in Bulgaria and has carried over 16.4 million passengers to and from the country, with 1.4 million passengers carried in 2022 alone. The new Airbus A321ceo joining Wizz Air’s Sofia fleet represents a further investment of over USD 100 million in Bulgaria, providing a boost to the local economy by creating 50 direct jobs with the airline, and 200 indirect jobs***. The new aircraft in Sofia takes the total number of WIZZ aircraft based in Bulgaria to 11, with 7 based in Sofia, 3 in Varna and 1 at its summer base in Burgas. Today’s announcement reiterates Wizz Air’s long-term commitment to the Bulgarian market, and to creating more new and exciting travel opportunities for its passengers.

Whether it’s exploring the beautiful port town of Hamburg, with its many waterways and canals, or discovering the fascinating museums and historical buildings in Stockholm, in a beautiful waterfront setting, there is something for every type of traveller.

To celebrate today’s announcement, Wizz Air is hosting a joint press event with Sofia Airport. Speaking at the event, Roland Tischner, Officer of Wizz Air Hungary Operations, said: “We are delighted to celebrate the addition of a seventh Airbus A321ceo aircraft to our Sofia base, alongside two new routes and increased frequencies.
