Visiting Moldova is easy thanks to regular flights from the UK. Flights to Chisinau leave every day and take just over 3 hours to get to their destination. Whether travellers want to explore Moldova's countryside or get to know the capital, doing so couldn't be simpler when they travel by plane.
All flights from the UK to Chisinau will touch down at Chisinau International Airport. The airport can be found eight miles outside the city itself, but transferring is hassle-free. The number 30 bus provides an affordable connection to the city centre, while mini-buses and taxis are also available. Expect transfers to take 30-40 minutes to most parts of the city.
Passengers can choose between a few different airlines when heading to Chisinau. Options include Air Moldova (who fly from London Stansted), FlyOne (who fly from London Southend), and Wizz Air (who fly from Doncaster Sheffield and London Luton). So there should be a convenient place to fly from, wherever people are based.
Flying is always a convenient and easy way to reach the Moldovan capital. Firstly, when travellers fly, the journey time won't be that long. Most flights take three hours 15 minutes from London and not much longer from other UK airports. That puts Chisinau well within range for weekend city breaks. Budget fares are routinely available, making flying very competitive price-wise, and the airport at Chisinau is very close to the city, so there's no need for lengthy bus or taxi journeys upon arrival. Moreover, the alternatives are extremely time-consuming, making flying the only viable option for most people.
Chisinau may be an underrated European travel destination, but it has a huge amount to offer visitors. The city isn't very large, and it has an excellent trolley-bus network which offers very cheap transit wherever visitors need to go. There are quite a few attractions to work through. The Army Museum is often the first port of call, with its exhibitions about the Soviet era, while the Archaeology and History Museum showcases finds from thousands of years of history. The Pushkin Cottage is a must-see for literature lovers, and foodies shouldn't feel left out, either. Chisinau and nearby towns like Cricova have some world-class wine bars, showing off the country's creations.
