WIZZ Air’s two new routes from Romania to Great Britain

28 September 2020,

Connecting Iași and Craiova to Birmingham

Wizz Air, the leading low-cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe and Europe’s greenest airline* has announced two new routes from Iași and Craiova to Birmingham in Great Britainm, starting from 23 and 24 October 2020.

The flights from Iași to Birmingham will commence on 23 October and be operated twice/week, on Wednesday and Sunday, while flights from Craiova to Birmingham will start on 24 October and will be available on Tuesday and Saturday. This is the second route from Craiova to Great Britain and the eight in the WIZZ network from Craiova, while from Iași, the new service is the third connection to Great Britain, taking the entire network of routes from Iași to 20. Birmingham is the second largest city in Great Britain and a strong business and industrial centre as the area hosts a significant part of the island’s automotive facilities and approximately 40% of the jewelry produced in Great Britain. The important economic background of Birmingham offers many opportunities for work and business.

For a safe and comfortable trip to Birmingham with Wizz Air the company has introduced a range of enhanced hygiene measures, to ensure the health and safety of its customers and crew. As part of these new protocols, throughout the flight, both cabin crew and passengers are required to wear facemasks, with cabin crew also required to wear gloves. Wizz Air’s aircraft are regularly put through an industry-leading fogging process with an antiviral solution and, following WIZZ’s stringent daily cleaning schedule, all of the airline’s aircraft are further disinfected overnight with the same antiviral solution. Onboard purchases are encouraged to be made by contactless payment. Passengers are requested to follow physical distancing measures introduced by the local health authorities and are encouraged to make all purchases prior to the flight online (e.g. checked in luggage, WIZZ Priority, fast security track), to minimize any possible physical contact at the airport.

As for any other Wizz Air flight, passengers who choose Birmingham as an accessible destination in the Wizz Air network can add WIZZ Flex to their booking. This way passengers can rest assured that if circumstances change, or they simply wish to travel on a different date, or to a different destination, they can rebook on any WIZZ flight of their choice. Providing that extra layer of protection for passenger bookings, is a peace of mind during these uncertain times.

Paulina Gosk, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air said:

„We are delighted to add two new routes from Iași and Craiova to Birmingham, while keeping ourselves to the highest standards of our sanitizing protocols. Thanks to implemented health and safety measures for passengers and crew on board, travelling with Wizz Air remains worry-free experience matched with low and attractive fares. Our dedicated crew looks forward to welcoming each WIZZ passenger with a smile on board of our young fleet.”
