Wizz Air enhances Poland connectivity

Closely following the news of the opening of eight new routes in Warsaw, Wizz Air has announced further expansion plans for Poland.

The airline will deploy two new aircraft in Katowice and Poznan, bringing its fleet in Poland to 18 Airbus A320. The fifth Katowice and second Poznan-based aircraft are due to be delivered on March 29, 2015 and May 2, 2015 respectively.

The Central and Eastern-European carrier also announced five new services starting in early 2015 from Gdansk to Molde, Norway and Frankfurt Hahn, from Katowice to Belfast, from Poznan to Malmo and from Lublin to Stockholm Skvasta.

Wizz Air now offers a total of 103 routes spanning 47 destinations from seven Polish airports. Adding to this, the carrier has increased frequencies on some of its most popular routes across its Polish network.

CEO, Wizz Air, József Váradi commented: "[This] is another major step forward for Wizz Air in Poland. Just in three weeks we have announced three new based aircraft, 13 new routes and 1.4 million additional seats in 2015. We are highly committed to continuing to bring more of our low fares and optional services to best meet the needs of the Polish travelling public.

"Wizz Air's ever expanding network and increasing frequencies on existing routes will certainly attract more passengers traveling on leisure or business. Our growth will generate over 1,400 jobs across Poland and boost tourism across the country."
