The low-cost carrier now connects Romania’s second city with five UK destinations
The route between Romania’s second city and London’s second airport will kick off on 31 March and operate daily.
Cluj-Napoca will be the second route to Romania from Gatwick, joining the popular Bucharest service, connecting south London with some of the most vibrant cities in the central and eastern European region.
“In 2018, Wizz Air and Avram Iancu International Airport had a fruitful cooperation resulting in the addition of our seven aircraft and five new routes from Cluj-Napoca,” said head of communications at Wizz, Tamara Vallois.
“Our newest route offers low-cost travel to the second biggest airport of the capital, London Gatwick, providing great value at truly low fares.”

The carrier will also allocate two new A321ceo aircraft and six new routes to Luton.
With the boosted capacity, Wizz is about to become the largest airline at London Luton Airport with 42 per cent market share in summer 2019.
