Wizz Air already serves seven destinations from Liverpool to destinations across Romania, Poland, and Hungary.
With the addition of these services, Wizz Air will now provide up to 17 weekly flights from Liverpool alone, offering more than 290,000 seats to be on sale in 2019.
This growth comes on the back of Wizz Air launching their UK subsidiary, in which eight Airbus aircraft have been added to the fleet of that UK AOC.
