Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air is adding a new airplane this year in its base in Georgia’s Kutaisi International Airport to cater to the growing number of passengers.

Last year Wizz Air expanded its network, operations and customer offerings which led to an increased number of passengers.

As the company announced today Wizz Air served over 310,000 passengers at Kutaisi International Airport in 2017. This was a 102 percent increase year-on-year.

This year the company expects to experience 96 percent growth in passenger numbers thanks to the new routes that the company has already announced for the year of 2018.

For 2018 Wizz Air added new routes from Kutaisi International Airport to Vienna, Riga, Athens, Rome, Paris, Barcelona and Prague.

Wizz Air announced that this year it will offer 441,000 seats to the passengers of Kutaisi International Airport.

WizzAir, one of the largest low-cost airlines in Europe, launched flights from Kutaisi International Airport after it opened its first Caucasian base in September 2016.

Opening the airline base at Georgia’s second largest airport was expected to increase passenger flow into and out of the country, as the airline offers already 19 new cheap flight destinations to European cities.
