Hungary's Wizz Air has announced that it has expanded its Budapest business base by incorporating two new aircraft, two new routes, and frequency increases on 13 popular services.

According to reports, Wizz Air now holds the accolade of being the largest low-cost airline in eastern and central Europe and is going from strength-to-strength.

The airline will add 32 additional weekly flights to its Budapest schedule growing its seat capacity from the Hungarian capital to over 5.3 million for 2018, an increase of 20 percent year-on-year.

Wizz Air's investment in Hungary will create 84 additional direct local jobs with the airline and help drive the local economy.

The newest Wizz Air route will connect Budapest to Stavanger in March 2018, and in May of the same year, Wizz Air will launch another new route to Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg (EuroAirport), located in the heart of Western Europe at the crossroads of France, Germany and Switzerland.
