Wizz Air offers more flights to Poland
[19th March 2008]
More flights to Poland are to be offered by low cost airline Wizz Air following the decision by airline Centralwings to discontinue eight of its flights to Poland.
Wizz Air, which has its headquarters in Hungary, says it will offer alternative routes to Centralwings passengers flying from the UK, France and Germany to Poland.
On Centralwings cancelled flights from Manchester airport to Gdansk and Warsaw, Wizz Air is offering alternative flights from Liverpool airport to these Polish cities with fares from £22.99 one way all inclusive.
As an alternative to Centralwings Birmingham airport to Krakow flights, Wizz Air has flights from Coventry airport to Katowice starting from £22.99. Glasgow Prestwick airport flights to Poznan priced from £14.99 are offered in place of Centralwingss Edinburgh to Poznan flights.
For flights from Ireland to Poland, Wizz Air has Cork airport to Gdansk flights rather than Centralwingss Shannon airport to Gdansk flights, and Cork to Katowice flights as a substitute for Cork to Krakow flights.
Wizz Air is the largest budget airline in Poland with 35% of the market in 2007. In the first half of this year it is launching 14 new routes. The airline has a fleet of Airbus A320s with 180 leather seats.
Following its launch in 2004, Wizz Air now has seven operating bases in Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, with an eighth to open in Cluj in May this year. The airline now offers flights on 70 routes around Europe.
Wizz Air has adopted a simple service model, which includes ticketless travel, no seat assignment and the use of what it calls cost- and time-efficient secondary airports such as Liverpool airport and Prestwick airport.
