Hungarian budget airline Wizz Air has announced it is to open its first UK base at Luton Airport.
The low-cost carrier has been flying to Luton for 12 years and is already the second largest carrier at the airport after easyJet.
The Luton base will be their first in the UK, and their 28th in total.
The company expect the move to create 36 new jobs and the base will house one new Airbus A320 aircraft.
As part of the plans, there will also be three new routes to Tel Aviv in Israel, Pristina in Kosovo and Kutaisi in Georgia.
Today’s announcement once again underlines Wizz Air’s commitment to the UK. Our first Wizz Air flight from the UK took off from London Luton in 2004 and since then, we have carried over 35 million passengers on our low-fare UK routes.
By establishing base operations at London Luton, where WIZZ is already the second largest operator and an important supporter of local jobs with our business partners, we are also creating direct local jobs with one of Europe’s fastest-growing airlines for the first time.
