Wizz Air is to launch three new routes from Luton to Athens, Keflavik in Iceland,   and the Italian city of Bari from spring 2018.

The Hungarian low-cost carrier is expanding services at Luton after buying slots from the administrators of Monarch Airlines, which collapsed on October 2.

Wizz is also to increase frequencies from Luton to Larnaca in Cyprus from seven to 10 flights per week from September 17, as it expands its fleet based at Luton from one to seven aircraft.

The airline has announced a total of 11 new routes from Luton this year including destinations such as Larnaca, Tirana, Tallinn, Bratislava and Lviv.

Wizz CEO Jozsef Varadi, said: “2017 has been a milestone year for Wizz at Luton and we continue to invest in our operations there.

“The new routes announced today expand our network from London Luton to 45 routes to 22 countries, giving our customers the opportunity to travel to a wide variety of destinations at the lowest prices.

“Those lowest prices mean we continue to stimulate inbound and outbound traffic and allocate capacity to cover unserved routes, further diversifying our network and consolidating our position at Luton. 

“We look forward to welcoming ever more passengers onboard one of Europe’s youngest fleets in 2018.”

Luton to Athens flights will operate daily from April 29, 2018, while services to Keflavik will initially run four times per week from April 29, before going daily from September 17. 

The Bari route will operate twice weekly from March 25 to April 18, before moving up to four flights per week from April 19.
