Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe*, today announced further enhancements to its low fare route network from Poland, with 6 new routes from 5 different airports.

Flights to Glasgow from Katowice and Poznan will start on 26 October and 28 October respectively, from 27 October Warsaw will have a service to Bergen and Szczecin will be linked to London Luton, while two new destinations in the Netherlands will be added: flights to Groningen from Gdansk and flights to Maastricht from Katowice will start on 28 October.

Groningen, the 97th Wizz Air destination, is the largest city in the North of the Netherlands and known as the “Capital city for bicycling”. Maastricht, Wizz Air’s 98th destination, is located in the South of the Netherlands and is the birthplace of the European Union and the Euro currency. While it’s one of the oldest Dutch cities, it also has one of the youngest populations with students from all over Europe creating an international and vibrant lifestyle. The new services to the Netherlands, Norway and the UK complement what is already a great choice of low fare routes for Polish consumers.

With these 6 new services Wizz Air is now offering a total of 90 routes to 17 countries from Poland. While the airline increased its offer from Warsaw’s centrally located Chopin Airport by over 20% year on year this summer season, these new flights demonstrate Wizz Air’s commitment to increasing further the choice of low fare flights, growing tourism and supporting employment in the Polish regions. Tickets on Wizz Air’s newest Polish routes are already on sale and can be booked at wizzair.com.

Wizz Air’s Daniel de Carvalho said: “We are thrilled today to announce 6 new routes from some of Poland’s largest cities. Passengers can now access Bergen in Norway conveniently from Warsaw Chopin airport on our very low fares while customers from Gdansk, Katowice, Poznan and Szczecin can also enjoy a larger choice of exciting Wizz Air destinations. We look forward to attracting more visitors to the Polish regions on our new services, which will support employment in the tourism and hospitality sectors. The launch of these new services is truly good news and our Polish speaking crew look forward to welcoming many passengers on board!”

Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport’s commercial director, said: “Wizz Air has been a successful addition to our airline roster, providing connectivity to key Polish destinations and growing its passenger traffic every month since its arrival here in March 2013. The decision by Wizz Air to launch new services to Katowice and Poznan later this year is great news for travellers in both countries, with Katowice in particular set to be popular with Scots travelling to nearby sites of cultural and historical significance such as Krakow and Auschwitz. Today’s announcement by Wizz means Glasgow Airport will soon be serving more Polish cities than any other Scottish airport.”
