Wizz Air has reached another major milestone in its Italian operations, by opening a base at Rome Fiumicino airport. This new base will continue to strengthen the airline's reach in Italy. The announcement comes as the European Union introduces a new EU COVID-19 certificate, which will help facilitate safe and free movement of citizens in the EU during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the travel industry continues to thrive again following the pandemic, Wizz Air will be in a brilliant position to benefit from this growth.
