This month, Aberdeen International Airport has welcomed the arrival of a new route. The route which is operated by Wizz Air will fly passengers between Aberdeen and Gdansk, Poland.
The inaugural inbound flight was greeted by Aberdeen International Airport staff who were on hand with plenty of celebratory activities including Polish sweet treat giveaways and vodka tasting throughout the terminal.
Wizz Air is the largest low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe and it announced earlier this year of its plans to run a scheduled service between Aberdeen and Poland. Gdansk is a cultural melting pot and is home to some of the oldest red brick churches in Europe. The route could also benefit the economy, as Gdansk has been recognised as a key destination for the Aberdeen energy market.
The new service departs Aberdeen International Airport twice weekly, on Mondays and Fridays and passengers can relax on the 180 seat Airbus A320 aircraft as they jet off to their new holiday destination.
Wizz Air’s Daniel de Carvalho commented on the inaugural flights: “[the flights] mark a new milestone for Wizz. We are happy to launch our first Wizz flight from Aberdeen to Gdansk. We are excited to provide UK and Polish customers with the opportunity to travel on our comfortable and new Airbus A320 and explore both Gdansk and Aberdeen at very low fares. With a variety of flights offered from seven UK airports we look forward to welcoming many passengers on board during 2015.”
