Wizz Air opens 18th route from Eindhoven Airport to Timişoara

Eindhoven, 8 January 2016

Wizz Air today announced that it will be launching a new route in March 2016 between Eindhoven Airport and Traian Vuia International, the airport serving the city of Timişoara in western Romania.

Flights from Eindhoven to Timişoara will take place three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays using the ultra-modern and quiet Airbus A320 that has room for up to 180 passengers. The route will go into operation on 29 March 2016. Timişoara is already the eighteenth destination that Wizz Air offers from Eindhoven Airport and the second new destination. Wizz Air will be flying to from March, next to Lublin in Poland.

With a population of 310,000 people, Timişoara is one of the larger cities in Romania. It is also sometimes referred to as 'Little Vienna', thanks to the many beautiful and eye-catching buildings from the Baroque era and the late 19th century. Timişoara is candidate to become European Cultural Capital in 2021, and for good reason. Economically, the city plays a major role for the automotive industry; a number of important suppliers for car giants such as BMW, Volkswagen and Audi are based in Timişoara, but also Continental AG, which has a large tyre factory in the city.

Wizz Air flies to the following destinations in Central and Eastern Europe from Eindhoven Airport: Riga (Latvia), Vilnius (Lithuania), Danzig, Katowice, Wroclaw, Poznań, Warsaw, Lublin (Poland), Brno (the Czech Republic), Budapest, Debrecen (Hungary), Belgrade (Serbia), Tuzla (Bosnia-Herzegovina), Skopje (Macedonia), Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timişoara (Romania) and Sofia (Bulgaria).
