Wizz Air launches flights to Krakow and Poznan from Birmingham Airport

Birmingham Airport has said that it launched two new routes with Wizz Air this week, resuming the popular Poznan route and introducing a new route to Krakow.

Poznan, located in central Poland, offers a range of attractions including a choice of historical places and museums, renaissance-style architecture, as well as a wide-range of dining and nightlife options. Travellers wishing to explore Krakow, known for its old-world ambiance and charm, can experience a range of galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

Tom Screen, Aviation Director at Birmingham Airport said: ‘It’s great news that Wizz Air is now operating flights to Poznan and Krakow, bringing the total number of routes Wizz Air operate from Birmingham Airport to seven. These new services provide vital connections for friends and family as well as enabling travel to exciting city break destinations! We are grateful to Wizz Air for their continued commitment to Birmingham Airport and the Midlands.

‘Wizz Air also operates to Bucharest, Budapest, Cluj-Napoca, Warsaw, and Wroclaw and now adds Poznan and Krakow to its route list. 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 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 GBP17.99 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.’
