Air France has announced its winter 2022 timetable, and Wizz Air will fly to Madeira during the cold months.
From the end of October, the airline will operate more flights to Lapland than in the previous year, and the connection between Pointe-à-Pitre and Montreal will be available again, reports airportal.hu.
According to the company, there will be no significant change in the number of Air France flights between Paris Charles de Gaulle and Budapest Liszt Ferenc airports, with Airbus A320 aircrafts flying 2-3 times daily between the two capitals.
Air France will also keep its Helsinki service, which was launched in summer 2021, and will continue to offer connections to Copenhagen, Billund, Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm and Gothenburg in the region, with a transfer in Paris.
From 30 October, Wizz Air will offer two flights a week on its winter schedule between Budapest and Madeira. According to the airline’s statement that was sent to airportal.hu, the flights will depart from Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport to Madeira every Tuesday and Sunday from 30 October. Fares start from HUF 27 990 (EUR 69.2).
Wizz Air, which closed the last quarter with a significant loss, expects a massive profit in the summer months, although operational difficulties have forced it to cut back its summer capacity. The situation is now returning to normal and the company is maintaining its fleet development plans, according to airportal.hu.
The airline will not postpone the delivery of any of its new aircraft, although possible disruptions due to supply chain problems are expected, with only a few months of delays, according to the airline’s report for its first financial quarter (April-June 2022).
Wizz Air expects to take delivery of a further 36 A321neo aircraft for the remainder of its financial year (until the end of March 2023), while 11 older A320s will leave the fleet, with four A320s stuck in Ukraine still to be released from the war-torn country.
