Budget airline Wizz is planning to launch new routes from London Gatwick Airport after buying 15 daily slot pairs from Norwegian Air.

It will base four more Airbus A321neo aircraft at Gatwick from next spring, bringing its total at the London airport to five.

It said a host of new ‘low-fare’ routes will be announced ‘in due course’.

Wizz , which opened its Gatwick base a year ago, said its purchase of Norwegian’s slots demonstrated its long-term commitment to the airport and the UK market.

Group CEO  József Váradi added: “Acquiring airport slots at Gatwick Airport will enable us to enhance our presence and competitive position in the London market.

“We continue to develop our business in United Kingdom and remain committed to making air travel affordable for all. The 2022 season has the potential to be a tremendous opportunity for UK aviation to get back on its feet.”
