Wizz Air to further expand in St. Petersburg and launch five new routes from Pulkovo Airport

In December 2020, Wizz Air, the European low-cost airline, will add the second Airbus A320 to the new base at Pulkovo St. Petersburg Airport. Together with expanding the fleet, the airline will launch five new services from the Northern capital of Russia to the Italian cities Bergamo, Venice, Bologna, Turin, and Catania, starting December 2020 and March 2021. All routes will be new for the schedule of Pulkovo Airport. The flights will be performed under the seventh freedom traffic rights regime.

“We are happy that Wizz Air strengthens its positions in St. Petersburg. The airline will add 5 new cities to the route network from Pulkovo. This will undoubtedly make travel from St. Petersburg even more affordable and comfortable. All of the announced Italian cities will be new for the schedule of the Pulkovo Airport.”
