Wizz Air announces new routes to Poland from Birmingham Airport

Hungarian airline Wizz Air has announced two new routes from Birmingham Airport to Poland, starting September.

The first route will be to Poznan and it will be launched September 16, while the second route, to Krakow, will be launched on September 17. One-way fares to Poznan and Krakow start from £17.99.

Poland’s fifth-largest city, Poznan is home to several historical attractions and museums, renaissance-style architecture, and it also offers a range of dining and nightlife options. Meanwhile Krakow, known for its old-world ambiance and charm, offers a range of exciting galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Tom Screen, aviation director at Birmingham Airport said: ‘It’s great news that Wizz Air will be operating to Poznan and Krakow – the launch of both routes will mean the airline will operate seven routes in total from Birmingham Airport. Providing our passengers with a range of destinations to connect with family and friends or find their next city break, is important to us and with these additional routes we are able to do just that.

‘Wizz Air currently operates to Cluj-Napoca, Budapest, Bucharest, Warsaw, and Wroclaw, adding routes to both Poznan and Krakow in September. The new routes are a fantastic addition and we’re really looking forward to growing our offering with Wizz Air over the next few years here at Birmingham Airport.’

Tamara Vallois, head of Marketing and Communications at Wizz Air said: ‘We are delighted to announce we will now operate a total of seven routes from Birmingham Airport. We launched our very first Wizz flight to Birmingham in 2015 and today, we offer seven low-fare routes to Poland, Romania and Hungary. With fares from only £17.99, we hope to see many happy customers on board our brand-new Airbus aircraft on routes to Poznan and Krakow as well as on all the other routes in the Wizz network.’

Wizz Air has been operating from Birmingham Airport since June 2015, with its inaugural route to Warsaw, quickly followed by Budapest. With the two new routes, Wizz Air now operates a total of seven routes to Poland from Birmingham Airport.
