The press service of the company said that this is a “difficult but responsible decision”, which is connected with the “recent events” in Moldova and with “although not one hundred percent, but a high risk in the country’s airspace.”
What events and risks are in question are not specified. After the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, fragments of rockets were repeatedly found on the territory of Moldova.
“Wizz Air is closely monitoring the security situation in Moldova and is in constant contact with local and international authorities and agencies to ensure the highest level of flight safety and reliability. The safety of passengers and crew remains the number one priority for Wizz Air, but As a result of recent events in Moldova and a high, if not 100% possible, risk in the country’s airspace, Wizz Air has taken the difficult but responsible decision to suspend all flights to Chisinau from March 14,” the airline said.
The information is also confirmed on the website of the Civil Aviation Authority of Moldova.
