Due to the coronavirus epidemic, Wizz Air suspended its base in Debrecen on March 23. This lasted until June 16, when the airline resumed two flights, London and Eindhoven. Subsequently, flights to Cyprus, Palma de Mallorca, and Paris restarted.
The flight service from Debrecen to Tel-Aviv was briefly restarted by Wizz Air at the beginning of July, however, this was then suspended. The Debrecen-Tel-Aviv flight restart has been pushed back from July, and according to the Wizz Air’s booking system fights are due to restart on August 19th.
András Radó, the airline’s communications manager, told Dehir earlier that they are constantly monitoring the situation and are looking to restart flights, depending on the booking volume. In addition, and of course, the lifting or reintroduction of epidemiological restrictions could also affect their schedule, he added.
Unfortunately, there is bad news coming from Israel, the number of new diseases per million inhabitants is similar to that in the United States. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week that there is an emergency in Israel, doubling the number of serious patients.
Wizz Air also planned to resume the flight to Moscow in July, but currently, it is only possible to book tickets for the flight in October. In Russia, the number of confirmed Covid-19 infected exceeded 700,000 yesterday, making Russia the fourth largest in the world in terms of the number of infected people.
According to previous reports, Russia plans to resume scheduled air traffic suspended on March 27th due to Covid-19 in two phases, presumably from August.
