The severe winter conditions are taking a toll on flight traffic at the two Bucharest airports and low-cost airline Wizz Air has canceled the flights to London, Paris, Charleroi and Stockholm, the National Company Bucharest Airports (CNAB) informed in a release.
The carrier’s canceled flights are as follows: 3001/3002 Bucharest — London — Bucharest; 3051/3052 Bucharest — Paris — Bucharest; 3081/3082 Bucharest — Charleroi — Bucharest; and 3201/3203 Bucharest — Stockholm — Bucharest.
