On Friday, the Hungarian low-cost airline Wizzair opened the first base on German soil. The carrier is now stationing three Airbus A321 aircraft at Dortmund Airport. At the same time, 18 new destinations will be added step by step.

The airport estimates the potential passenger volume at up to one million passengers per year. According to information from Dortmund Airport, this should be noticeable in the Corona year 2020 with around 250.000 additional travelers. A total of 48 destinations are offered.

“By opening the base, we will recover from the effects of the corona pandemic much faster than the industry as a whole. We expect that by August we will already be at 80 percent of the passenger volume compared to 2019. With the opening of the Wizz Air-Base, short-time work ends in the entire company, ”says airport manager Udo Mager.

Wizzair is adding the following destinations from Dortmund:

  • Italy: Alghero, Bari, Catania, Naples
  • Greece: Athens, Corfu, Heraklion, Thessaloniki, Santorini, Rhodes
  • Spain: Fuerteventura
  • Iceland: Reykjavík
  • Portugal: Lisbon (Portugal)
  • Ukraine: Zaporizhia
  • Morocco: Marrakech
  • Romania: Suceava
  • Croatia: Split
  • Montenegro: Podgorica
