It was only in June of the previous year that the Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air opened its first base in Germany at Dortmund Airport. It will be closed on October 24, 2021.
The workforce was informed of the closure in an email sent to Aviation Direct. Dortmund Airport also informed its employees about the abandonment of the German Wizz Air base.
The base in Riga, Latvia, is also given up. The closure will take place here on October 3, 2021, according to the circular. First, the Polish portal Pasazer reported on the end of the two bases.
Wizz Air itself did not initially comment on the imminent closure of the Dortmund and Riga stations. In any case, the employees concerned will be offered alternative workplaces at other bases in the group. It remains to be seen whether this is a suitable solution in each individual case.
Both Riga and Dortmund are to remain in the Wizz Air route network. From October 2021, most routes will be served by machines stationed at other airports. The station in Riga has existed since 2014 and the one in Dortmund was opened in June of the previous year.
