Wizz Air, a low-cost carrier based in Hungary, has announced it has delayed the stationing of a third aircraft and the launch of nine new routes from Belgrade Nikola Tesla Airport, from July 16 to August 17, the company said.
The delay is due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and uncertainty over travel restrictions. Operations to Salzburg, which launched last week, will continue to operate as scheduled along with all of Wizz Air´s existing routes from Belgrade and Niš.
Under the revised timetable, services to Hamburg, Turku and Cologne will commence on August 17, to Friedrichshafen, Lisbon and Barcelona on August 18, to Charleroi on August 19 and to Milan and Sandefjord on August 20. Both the operational days and frequencies remain unchanged.
Wizz Air´s Belgrade expansion will mark the budget carrier´s biggest to date from the Serbian capital and will include significant capacity expansion with the replacement of its two Airbus A320 aircraft, with the larger A321 and the stationing of another jet of its type, for a total of three.
