The Hungarian airline Wizz Air has decided to suspend its flights to and from Moldova starting next March 14 for security reasons, after a few weeks ago Moldovan airspace was invaded by a Russian missile bound for Ukraine. The flights in question are in particular those to and from the capital, Chisinau, the only Moldovan city to which Wizz Air flies. The company explained the decision in a statement by speaking of the “high risk” that travel in the country’s airspace could entail. The Moldovan Minister of Infrastructure commented negatively on the choice of Wizz Air, explaining that “flights that comply with a series of procedures can be completed safely”.
