The Hungarian airline Wizz Air will suspend all flights to Chisinau from March 14. This was announced on February 27 by her press service.

“The safety of passengers and crew remains the number one priority for Wizz Air. 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 statement says.

Instead, Wizz Air will increase the number of flights from the Romanian airport in Iasi, which is closest to Chisinau. The company will also introduce a new route to Berlin. Tickets for canceled flights will be refunded.
