Wizz Air Drops 19 Destinations from Kutaisi Base

Hungarian lowcoster WizzAir has removed 19 routes from Kutaisi, its base in Georgia, and decreased the number of based aircraft to two, down from three, Belgian aviation news platform aviation24.be reports, relying on a Twitter user @SeanM1997 as a source.

"In July 2019, WizzAir announced that its base in Kutaisi was going to increase from three to five aircraft, with 12 new routes. Only the Poznan route has been kept and the other 11 routes have been dropped or canceled before starting. The carrier is revisiting bases at the moment. Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, it decided to remove one aircraft, and to fly only with two based aircraft, dropping or simply canceling 19 routes," dfwatch.net reports.

The list of cancelled routes includes Nice, Stockholm Skavsta, Turku, Heraklion, Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden, Nuremberg, Venice Treviso, Pisa, Naples, London Luton, Cologne Bonn, Copenhagen, Eindhoven, Barcelona, Bari, Paris Beauvais, Brussels Charleroi, Frankfurt Hahn, and Hamburg.

The Kutaisi base is not the exception to flight cuts, as WizzAir is also reducing the number of aircraft in several Eastern European bases, including Budapest (from 15 to 13), Warsaw Chopin (from 8 to 7), Katowice & Gdansk (from 7 to 6), Cluj Napoca (from 7 to 5), Skopje (from 5 to 4), Kyiv Zhuliany (from 4 to 3), Timisoara & Vilnius (from 3 to 2), Craiova, Debrecen, Sibiu & Wroclaw (from 2 to 1).
