Abu Dhabi: Low-budget air carrier based in the UAE, Wizz Air has decided to suspend flights to the Moldovan capital Chisinau. Flight services to Chisinau will be suspended from March 14. The decision was taken due to concerns about the safety of its airspace.
‘Safety of the passengers and crew remain Wizz Air’s number one priority and following the recent developments in Moldova and the elevated, but not imminent, risk in the country’s airspace, Wizz Air has made the difficult but responsible decision to suspend all flights to Chisinau from the 14th of March,’ the airline said.

Flights to Budapest and Prague will not be replaced and those inbound to Chisinau will be reallocated to other destinations in the Wizz Air network.
