Wizz Air to launch four new flights from Pulkovo Airport to four European cities

Starting June and July 2020, Wizz Air, the European low-cost airline, will launch four scheduled flights from Pulkovo St. Petersburg Airport (Russia) to Bratislava (Slovakia), Bucharest (Romania), Sofia (Bulgaria) and Vilnius (Lithuania). All four cities will be new for the schedule of St. Petersburg airport. The flights will be operated under the seventh freedom traffic rights regime.

“We are grateful for the support from the Government of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia, the Government of St. Petersburg and the VTB Group. Today Pulkovo Airport has unprecedented conditions for the development as an international aviation hub. The complex of measures includes the seventh freedom traffic rights regime, flexible tariff management and e-visas for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region. We are the first in Russia to offer foreign airlines such unique market conditions. I am confident that the new Wizz Air flights will be in high demand both among Russian and foreign travelers.”

Leonid Sergeev, Chief Executive Officer of Pulkovo Airport operator Northern Capital Gateway LLC

“Today’s announcement underlines Wizz Air’s commitment to create more and more low-fare travel opportunities for Russian travelers. The four new European destinations from Saint Petersburg to Bucharest, Vilnius, Sofia and Bratislava expand our network and provide an ever-growing choice of affordable travel to European destinations on one of the youngest and greenest fleets. Together with the recent simplified e-visa process and the establishment of the seventh freedom above Saint Petersburg it is becoming an even more attractive tourism destination. Wizz Air has a long-term strategic interest in the Russian market and we are looking forward to welcoming ever-more passengers on board our young and reliable fleet.”
