With today's inaugural flight, the range of destinations offered by the Hungarian airline Wizz Air has been supplemented by a further route. From now on, travellers from Dortmund can fly to the university city of Craiova in southwestern Romania in just under two and a half hours. Flights to the ninth Romanian destination are now included on Dortmund Airport's winter flight schedule twice weekly, on Mondays and Fridays.

Guido Miletic, Head of Airport Services + Marketing & Sales, is delighted with the latest route expansion and welcomed the crew to Craiova on the apron. "Celebrating this inaugural flight from Dortmund to Craiova is an exciting milestone for Wizz Air and our passengers," announced Valeria Bragarenco, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air. "This new route not only underscores our commitment to offer low fares but also opens a gateway to the vibrant city of Craiova. We look forward to being a part of our passengers' journey, providing them with a seamless and affordable experience while contributing to their unforgettable memories."

Craiova, located in the province of Oltenia in the region of western Wallachia, has a remarkably rich history. The cityscape comprises artistic buildings, museums and cultural sites. The city has plenty to offer nature lovers, including the idyllic Botanical Garden and the extensive Nicolae Romanescu Park, which are ideal for walks and relaxation in the countryside. Another attraction for visitors is the city's famous Christmas market. Appreciated well beyond the country's borders, in the pre-Christmas season it attracts numerous holidaymakers from far and wide to Craiova.
