Wizz Air, the low-cost airline based in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced new direct flights between Aberdeen Airport and Warsaw – the first time Warsaw has been served as a destination from Aberdeen.
The new service will operate year round, twice weekly, starting May 2016.
The airline moved to Aberdeen Airport this year, launching a twice weekly service to Gdansk. Wizz Air’s Expansion at Aberdeen means that the airline now offers a total of 122 routes to 20 countries from its base in Poland.
Carol Benzie, managing director at Aberdeen Airport, said: “Wizz Air is an ambitious and rapidly growing airline and the addition of Warsaw is fantastic news for the airport and the city. We are continually working to expand our route network and not only will Wizz Air’s new route strengthen our connectivity with Europe’s major cities, it has huge potential to generate significant in-bound tourism for Aberdeen.”
József Váradi, CEO of Wizz Air said: “I’m delighted that our Polish business keeps growing after a year of almost 30 percent capacity growth in our six Polish bases. By adding a sixth aircraft to our Warsaw base, we respond to demand and continue investing in offering low fares from Warsaw’s main airport. Our move to Aberdeen Airport is a step towards future passenger and route growth.”
