Wizz Air, the fastest-growing airline in Europe and the greenest in the world, has announced the arrival of its third aircraft at its base at Larnaca Airport. With the arrival of this modern aircraft, three new routes will be launched to and from Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh.
Wizz Air has been operating in Cyprus since 2010 and has carried more than 5 million passengers on its flights during 10 successful years. The airline is committed to Larnaca and the Cypriot market by offering a high level of service combined with low fares to its passengers.
Wizz Air continues to expand its network from Cyprus and now operates 31 routes in 18 countries. The airline has exciting destinations in its Larnaca schedule to cities such as Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi.
The placement of the third aircraft in Larnaca reinforces the airline's commitment to an environmentally conscious operation. The airline operates one of the youngest fleets in the world with an average life of 4.6 years, enabling Wizz Air to achieve its lowest annual carbon intensity in 2022. Wizz Air is constantly working on fuel efficiency actions and other sustainability projects while being the airline with the largest fleet of green Airbus A321neo aircraft in Europe.
Evelin Jeckel, Wizz Air Deputy Network Officer, said: "I am delighted to announce the further development of Wizz Air's network in Cyprus with the addition of a third aircraft to our base at Larnaca Airport. We are grateful for the cooperation we have had over the years with Larnaca Airport. Wizz Air now operates 31 routes from Larnaca to 18 countries in Europe and the Middle East, including the newly announced routes to Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam."
