On Tuesday (June 15, 2021), Wizz Air announced the launch of their sixth Italian base in Naples. The carrier will launch 18 new international and domestic routes in nine countries, complementing eight existing routes from Naples. Between August and September, Wizz will base two Airbus A321neos at the new base. Wizz has served Italy since 2004 and has carried over 40 million passengers on over 200 routes to and from the country in the last 17 years. Naples is the airline’s 44th base, and joins Italian bases at Milan-Malpensa, Catania, Palermo, Bari and Rome-Fiumicino. The Milan base will create over 30 direct jobs and more than 1,100 jobs in associated industries. To celebrate the launch of the new base, Wizz is offering introductory one-way fares from only €9.99 to €39.99.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Wizz Air’s Chief Commercial Officer, George Michalopoulos, said,

I am delighted to announce Wizz Air’s newest base at Naples International Airport and the quadrupling of our capacity at the airport. Wizz Air’s sixth Italian base, together with the basing of two Airbus A321neo aircraft and the addition of 18 new routes, is a further testament to the airline’s firm plan to establish itself as the most trusted and sustainable player among Italy’s top 3 airlines. It is a true honor to serve Italy’s third biggest city and support the ramp up of the local economy and tourism sector. Our brand new A321neo aircraft as well as our enhanced protective measures will ensure the best possible sanitary conditions for travellers while operating with the lowest environmental footprint. We look forward to welcoming passengers back on board with great service and a smile.”
