The plan was to fly from Debrecen to Hurghada by the end of March, but the war interrupted the flight.
Wizz Air suspended its flights from Budapest and Debrecen to Tel Aviv after Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip launched a surprise attack on Israel on the 7th of October. The terrorists invaded the south of the country, killing more than 1,300 people, wounding around 3,000 others and kidnapping hundreds more. The war has been ongoing ever since, with Israel carrying out a series of reprisals and the government vowing to wipe Hamas off the face of the earth.
Wizz Air is currently scheduled to resume flights from Debrecen to Tel Aviv in mid-March at the earliest, but this is of course, subject to change.
The airline was to have launched an autumn-winter-spring flight to Hurghada in Egypt from Debrecen, with the first flight taking off in October and the last one at the end of March, but now the last date to book in Wizz Air’s system is the 21st of January.
Zsuzsa Trubek, Wizz Air’s communications manager, confirmed to the local news portal that the flight will be cancelled earlier than planned.
Anyone who booked between the 22nd of January and the end of March can choose between a cash refund, 120% of the ticket price in Wizz Air credits, or rebook their ticket for a Budapest departure.
Wizz Air flies from Debrecen to London, Rome, and Larnaca in Cyprus, while Lufthansa flies to Munich.
