Wizz Air Cuts Wales Flight Network for the Winter

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Wizz Air UK has announced it is looking to wind down operations at Cardiff Airport (CWL) in Wales, naming a ‘challenging macro-economic environment’ as the main reason for this decision.

Marion Geoffroy, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK, said, “We are very disappointed to have to suspend several routes from Cardiff Airport for the winter season. Though these routes have proved popular through the summer season, it would not be commercially viable to continue to operate them through this coming winter due to the challenging macro-economic environment. This leaves us with no option but to pause these routes until next spring.”

All 40 employees stationed in Cardiff will be offered alternate positions at other UK airports over the winter.
