The low-cost Wizz Air company, which operates a number of flights from Bulgaria, announced it has carried more than 590,000 passengers last year, marking a 76% rise over the previous year.
The airline, which operates 22 Airbus A320s from ten bases spread across mainland Europe, will launch four new routes from the capital Sofia to Madrid, Paris, Frankfurt and Bolognya in 2010.
The flights will be serviced three times weekly, starting from May 22.
The company plans to add one more flight to its schedule from Sofia to Eindhoven and Valencia, which will be serviced three and four times a week respectively.
It is also considering the possibility of launching flights to Bratislava, which would provide a an alternative to passengers affected by the suspension of SkyEurope’s operations at the beginning of the month.
The low-cost company currently holds 11% of the Bulgarian aviation market, preceded only by the national carrier Bulgaria Air.
The company plans to service a total of 10 million passengers across Europe in 2010, compared with 7,8 million in 2009, which marked a 33% rise over 2008.
