TWO airports in the UK have been affected by a budget airline scrapping flights ahead of this summer.

A number of routes have been suspended by Wizz Air due to what they describe as reduced demand.

Included in those routes are flights to both Birmingham and Liverpool.

The airline will no longer operate flights from Cluj-Napoca in Romania to the two UK cities.

The unofficial Transylvanian capital used to have Wizz Air connections to both but will no longer do so after March 27.

That is when the flights to and from Birmingham will be scrapped.

Meanwhile, the route between Cluj-Napoca and Liverpool was previously suspended and the airline has now announced that it will not resume.

Travel Wires report that these flights, as well as loads of others across Europe, will be stopped “as a result of reduced demand for certain destinations and changes in the travel market”.

Other affected routes include Paris, Prague, Berlin and Barcelona among a number of other popular European destinations.

There are plenty of places throughout the UK that are getting new flights this year, however.
