Wizz Air will launch flights between Bulgarian city Varna and Tel Aviv in Israel this summer.

The budget carrier says it will operate the route thrice weekly from 21 July.

In December 2016, Wizz revealed plans to establish a base in Varna, with an Airbus A320, in July.

WIzz says the stationing of that aircraft in Varna has allowed six new routes to be added from the city, which is located on the Black Sea. The carrier has previously disclosed plans for new services to Bergamo, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Larnaca and Memmingen.

FlightGlobal schedules data shows that Wizz already serves London Luton from Varna. During the summer of 2016, Wizz also operated a domestic service from Varna to Bulgarian capital Sofia.
