Wizz Air announces new service from Turin to Iasi three times weekly as of 1st August 2020

Caselle Torinese, 3rd October 2019 - Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines today announced the launch of a new service to Iasi from Turin. Flights will operate three times weekly to Romania’s second biggest city, with low fares from just €24.99.

Iasi, the historical capital of Romania, has been called the city of hundred churches. Located in Romania’s historical region of Moldavia, it is the perfect choice for those seeking a getaway in a city indeed bursting with centuries of architectural creations.

Visitors can enjoy the city’s diverse natural assets, the botanical gardens or the Copou Park with Romania’s oldest monument, the Obelisk of Lions. Iasi is also famous for its prominent buildings and 500-year-old monasteries. The neo-gothic Palace of Culture or the Monastery of the Three Holy Hierarchs are definitely worth to visit, but visitors can discover hidden architectural gems on every corner.

Iasi’s countless eateries, drinking places and lively clubs depend on the big university population. You'll find students from all over the world here – making this little corner of Romania truly cosmopolitan.

Wizz Air will offer almost 100,000 seats on its low fare routes from Turin airport in 2020. This flight will serve the Romanian community, which in Piedmont has about 100 thousands residents.

Andras Rado, Corporate Communications Manager of Wizz Air said: “We are delighted to add another exciting route from Turin to a perfect city break destination. Iasi, this truly cosmopolitan Eastern Romanian city, packed with cultural and diverse natural assets is the newest destination in Wizz Air’s network from Turin. We are thrilled to persistently offer our customers more opportunities to discover new and exciting destinations across Europe and beyond on the continent’s greenest airline fleet paired with Wizz Air’s low fares and high quality services. The WIZZ team looks forward to welcoming customers old and new on-board one of our aircraft with a smile.”

Andrea Andorno, Chief Executive Officer of Torino Airport said: “We are really glad with Wizz Air investments in Torino Airport. Iasi is the fifth route that Wizz is launching from our airport. Other new services are: Turin-Kishinev, starting 21st December 2019, and the recently opened (August 2019) Turin-Krakow. The Wizz network from Turin is then completed by Bucharest, already served (up to 4 times a week) and the ski route Warsaw. As of today Wizz is the airline that has launched in the last twelve months the most new routes from Turin, being also the fastest growing carrier. As a matter of fact it will be more than doubling its total seat offer in summer 2020 compared to the last summer season”.
