Wizz Air will increase frequency on its new route between London Luton and Larnaca, according to an official airline announcement.
The low-cost airline’s flights from Luton to Cyprus are scheduled to begin on May 30, 2018 with seven weekly services, before being increased to 10 from September 17.
This year, Wizz Air continued to invest in its London Luton operations and has achieved several key milestones in its UK development.
Wizz Air’s new Luton routes are part of the next phase in the carrier’s expansion plans following the establishment of Wizz Air UK and the increase of its fleet at London Luton in 2018, from one to seven aircraft, including five Airbus A320s and two A321s.
As the second largest airline operating at London Luton, Wizz Air has carried more than 5.56 million passengers on its low fare routes in the past 12 months, an 11 per cent increase compared to the previous period.
Following the continuous investment, in 2018, Wizz Air will offer more than 7.4 million seats on sale from London Luton airport, representing 23 per cent growth year-on-year.
