Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe have today announced another new route from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA), with flights to commence next Summer to the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Varna.

Flights will commence on 1st July 2019, operating to Varna three times a week with departures on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

This latest new service will be the airline’s 8th route from Liverpool complementing their existing seven routes to Warsaw, Gdansk, Katowice, Budapest, Bucharest, Cluj and Iași.

Varna is the largest city and seaside resort on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. It is popular with holidaymakers, is a major tourist destination and often described as the area’s most interesting and cosmopolitan town.

Paul Winfield, Director of Aviation Development for Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented, “We are delighted to see the addition of this new route to Varna which becomes the Airport’s 70th destination and Wizz Air’s 4th new route from Liverpool for Summer 2019, taking the airline’s number of frequencies to over 20 a week next Summer.

Passengers from across the North West and North Wales will now have the opportunity to fly direct from Liverpool to summer holiday resorts along the Black Sea Coast.

We have seen a host of destinations added to the Airport’s network of flights over the past year and annual passenger numbers rise to over 5 million, with 2019 looking like another busy year for the airport.”
