Comments from Wizz Air

Speaking at a press conference held at the Italian city, George Michalopoulos, W6 Chief Commercial Officer said, “I am delighted to announce Wizz Air’s newest base at Naples International Airport and the quadrupling of our capacity at the airport”

“It is a further testament to the airline’s firm plan to establishing itself as the most trusted and sustainable player among Italy’s top 3 airlines. It is a true honour to serve Italy’s third biggest city and support the ramp up of the local economy and the tourism sector.”

A Long-standing Presence in Italy

Wizz Air has served Italy since 2004. It has opened bases in Milan (MXP), Catania, Palermo, Bari and Rome (FCO). Over 40 million passengers have since been carried across over 200 routes. 

Naples becomes W6’s 44th base as the carrier, founded in September 2003, continues to buck the downturn in the industry following the COVID-19 pandemic.
