Marion Geoffroy added: “We are delighted to announce the addition of another destination to our network from London Luton Airport, Wizz Air’s first and largest base in the UK.

"Known as the city of artists, Plovdiv is a vibrant destination offering visitors everything from cultural festivals and weekly markets to trendy restaurants and contemporary galleries.

"As our UK network continues to grow, we are on the lookout for enthusiastic cabin crew and pilots to join our team and more details can be found on our website, for those interested in applying."

Vaccines

Wizz Air will require its flight crews to be vaccinated against Covid.

The airline, which serves 11 UK airports - including London Luton, said it is implementing the policy for all pilots and cabin crew by December as part of its commitment to protecting the health and safety of its passengers and crews.

In 'special cases', staff will be permitted to take 'regular' antigen or PCR tests rather than be vaccinated, but the company has not confirmed in which cases this could occur.
