Wizz Air to start Budapest-Santander route in June

The city will become the ninth in Spain to be served by Wizz Air from Budapest.

Hungarian LCC Wizz Air will start flights between Budapest and Santander in Spain, according to Budapest Airport.

The route, to be started June 2, will be operated 2X weekly. It will mark the 70th destination that Wizz serves from Budapest and the ninth in Spain, joining Alicante, Barcelona, Castellón, Ibiza, Madrid, Malaga, Palma de Mallorca and Tenerife South.

“Providing Budapest’s passengers with an ideal short-break option to the medieval port, Wizz Air’s new link will boost the airline’s presence in the Budapest-Spain market,” Budapest Airport said in a statement. “The LCC will have close to 54% share of all Spanish flights and seats from Hungary’s capital city during the 2020 summer.”
