Low-cost carrier Wizz Air now operates eight routes out of Liverpool Airport


Wizz Air has announced a new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.

The low-cost carrier will begin the service on July 1, 2019, flying to Varna on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays each week. It is Wizz Air’s eighth route from LJLA, with existing flights to Warsaw, Gdansk, Katowice, Budapest, Bucharest, Cluj and Iasi.

Varna is the largest city and seaside resort on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. It is popular with holidaymakers, is a major tourist destination and often described as the area’s most interesting and cosmopolitan town.

Paul Winfield, director of aviation development for LJLA, said: “We are delighted to see the addition of this new route to Varna which becomes the Airport’s 70th destination and Wizz Air’s fourth new route from Liverpool for summer 2019, taking the airline’s number of frequencies to over 20 a week next summer.

“Passengers from across the North West and North Wales will now have the opportunity to fly direct from Liverpool to summer holiday resorts along the Black Sea Coast.

We have seen a host of destinations added to the airport’s network of flights over the past year and annual passenger numbers rise to over 5 m, with 2019 looking like another busy year for the airport.”
