Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines today announced the launch of a new service to Iasi in Romania from London Southend airport. Flights will operate four times weekly to Romania’s second biggest city with low fares from just £26.99. 

Iasi, the cultural capital of Romania, is located in the region of Moldavia and is the perfect choice for those seeking a getaway to a city offering centuries of architectural heritage. Dubbed the ‘City of a Hundred Churches’, visitors can discover architectural gems on every corner, from the neo-gothic Palace of Culture to the 17th century Monastery of the Three Holy Hierarchs.

Famous for its diverse nature attractions, Iasi’s botanical gardens and the Copou Park, home to Romania’s oldest monument the Obelist of Lions, provide an oasis of calm just a stone’s throw from the city centre. 

Iasi’s countless eateries, drinking places and lively clubs – a result of its big university population – mean the city is bubbling with youthful energy. You’ll find students from all over the world here, making this little corner of Romania truly cosmopolitan.

Wizz Air now offers more than 10 million seats on its 108 low fare routes to 30 countries from eleven UK airports.

Owain Jones, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK said: 

“We are delighted to add another exciting route to a perfect city break destination. Iasi is a lively Eastern Romanian city, packed with cultural delights and nature attractions, and is the newest destination in Wizz Air’s extensive network from the UK. We are thrilled to offer our customers even more opportunities to discover unique destinations across Europe and beyond alongside low fares and a high quality on-board service. The WIZZ team looks forward to welcoming customers old and new on-board Europe’s greenest fleet.” 

Glyn Jones, CEO of Stobart Aviation, said:

“It is fantastic news that Wizz Air is immediately looking to grow the number of routes it is operating from our quick and easy airport, London Southend. The initial flights which start this month have already proved popular, and passengers will have even more choice in terms of flying to Central and Eastern Europe next Summer. With our own railway station just 100 paces from the terminal door, up to six trains an hour into London, and our award-winning customer service, we expect demand for flights to Romania and Lithuania to continue to grow.”
