Wizz Air has said that it has resumed services from Pulkovo St. Petersburg Airport to London Luton Airport on August 19, 2020, as the only carrier offering a direct connection from the UK to the Russian city.
With the lifting of travel restrictions in Russia, UK passengers are now able to revisit the Russian city – the cultural capital of Russia, once dubbed the ‘window into Europe’. St Petersburg is today sought after by tourists for its iconic architecture, palaces and museums as well as stylish restaurant and bars.
The flights are being operated up to three times a week by Wizz Air UK. Tickets are available now on wizzair.com or on the airline’s mobile app, with fares from £19.99 one-way price, including administration fee. One carry-on bag is included. The price applies only to bookings made on wizzair.com and the WIZZ mobile app. Number of seats at indicated prices are limited, Wizz Air said.
Owain Jones, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said: ‘We are proud to be the sole British carrier connecting the UK to St Petersburg, providing a genuinely affordable and unique travel opportunity to our UK customers. St Petersburg is a fascinating destination, with its world-class cultural experiences which span museums, art galleries and concert halls. We look forward to welcoming back customers to experience our exceptional onboard service and our young, environmentally efficient aircraft.’
In 2019, Wizz Air UK served more than 29,000 passengers on flights between St. Petersburg and London. The carrier started to provide services from Pulkovo to Luton on October 1, 2019.
