OREANDA-NEWS. Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced a new route from Sofia from May 2014. The route will be operated on one of the airline’s new Airbus A320 aircraft from 14 May 2014 and will connect Sofia with Tel Aviv.

Wizz Air’s route network in Sofia will now grow to a total of 17 routes to 12 different countries. The airline believes this is good news for the job market in aviation and tourism sectors in both cities as consumers will have access to more low cost routes.

Wizz Air’s Daniel de Carvalho said: "Wizz Air’s commitment to Bulgaria is today once again underlined by the new and much awaited route to Israel. Tel Aviv is now accessible on our low fares from Sofia and we hope that this route will be just as popular as the other 16 in the Bulgarian network. We hope that Sofia will benefit from the inflow of tourists from Israel which could stimulate job creation in tourism and hospitality sectors. On the other hand we are also confident that Bulgarian consumers will appreciate visiting beautiful Tel Aviv all year round and that it becomes popular to book long weekend in this friendly and warm city. Tickets are already on sale starting from BGN 99.99 on wizzair.com.”
