Budget airline Wizz Air ramps up Luton operation

LONDON, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Budget airline Wizz Air said on Monday it would greatly expand operations at its London Luton base, allocating a further four planes to the fleet by June 2018 and opening five new routes

The extra Airbus A320s will create 150 jobs at Luton, the airline said, and will bring its fleet size at Luton to five. The expansion will allow the eastern Europe-focussed airline to operate new routes to Cyprus, Slovakia, Estonia, Ukraine and Albania, as well as increase its frequency on popular routes to Israel, Romania and Kosovo.
