Wizz Air opened a new route from Turku Airport to Larnaca, Cyprus on 12th July. The new route further improves connections from Turku to Europe, said the country’s airport operator Finavia in a press release.

Direct flights to Larnaca will be operated twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays, throughout the year.

At Turku Airport, Wizz Air’s new route was welcomed with open arms.

“We are happy to see that the spread of coronavirus has declined so that travel restrictions can slowly be lifted, and airlines are able to open new routes once again. Every new and resuming route is a step towards normal,” remarked Finavia Vice President, Sales and Route Development Petri Vuori.

Wizz Air has also opened a new route from Turku to Belgrad, the capital city of Serbia. Direct flights to Belgrad will begin in August. In addition, Wizz Air also flies to Gdansk, Kaunas, Krakow, Warsaw and Skopje from Turku.

In July, the number of passengers at Finavia airports has slowly increased, and many airlines have reopened their routes across the world.

“We are actively taking care of hygiene and safety measures at Finavia’s airports to make sure passengers can travel safely. We want to keep offering Finns the best flight connections to the world,” said Vuori.

Before travelling, passengers are asked to read Finavia’s passengers’ check-list and to actively follow the information and instructions provided by their airlines.
