European low-cost carrier airline, Wizz Air, has said that it has expanded its low-fare UK network with the launch of a new service from Birmingham to Krakow.
Starting 17 September 2019, the new flights from Birmingham to Krakow will operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with fares starting from £17.99. Following the introduction of a new Krakow base in September 2018, Wizz Air’s Birmingham service will be the third route to operate from the UK to one of Poland’s oldest cities.
Owain Jones, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK, said: ‘Our aim at Wizz Air is to create the opportunity for UK travellers to enjoy low airfares to exciting destinations, coupled with a great travel experience. I am sure that our customers will love exploring all that the unique Polish cities of Gdansk and Krakow have to offer.
‘Our base in Krakow has gone from strength to strength since opening in September, providing passengers with the chance to travel to one of Europe’s most fascinating cities, steeped in culture and history with a vibrant culinary scene. Our friendly cabin crew look forward to welcoming travellers onboard one of the youngest and most efficient aircraft fleets in Europe very soon.’
Tom Screen, Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport, said: ‘Welcoming a new route to the airport is always exciting. Krakow in particular, is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination for its scenic architecture, as well as its history. To be able to serve this route, adding to the existing Wizz Air network at Birmingham is great.
‘Wizz Air now operate six routes from Birmingham Airport with destinations including Budapest, Bucharest, Wroclaw, Cluj and Warsaw.’
Tickets for the new routes can already be booked online at wizzair.com, or by using the Wizz Air app, available for Android and iOS users. With this new route, Wizz Air now offers 96 routes to 27 countries from nine UK airports.
