The twice-weekly flights to Warsaw are priced at £48.99 one way, while the flights to Gdansk are priced from £31.99, one way.

Amanda McMillan, the managing director of Glasgow Airport, said, ‘We are thrilled to welcome Wizz Air on board which is yet more good news for Glasgow Airport. Not only will it provide our customers with greater choice, it will further strengthen our connectivity with some of Europe’s major cities and it means we can add Poland to our long list of destinations after an absence of more than 15 years.

Wizz Air is an ambitious and rapidly growing airline which carried over 12 million passengers in 2012 alone, and we are looking forward to working alongside the team at Wizz to ensure it enjoys further growth and success at Glasgow. This announcement underlines our commitment to expanding our route network and delivering the routes and services our customers demand.’

Stijn Vandermoere, the head of network development and scheduling at Wizz Air, said, ‘Wizz Air is pleased to announce these two new routes operating from Glasgow Airport giving more consumers access to Wizz Air’s low fares and great customer service. Our popular low fares have strongly grown our business in four UK airports and we’re already the number two airline at one of London’s main airports. We believe there is also significant growth potential in Scotland and our move to Glasgow Airport is a step towards future passenger and route growth.

We are confident that Polish visitors to Scotland will embrace the convenient airport location and we urge Scottish consumers to try Wizz Air’s award winning service and low fares. To celebrate our arrival at Glasgow Airport Wizz Air released seats to Warsaw and Gdansk from just £23.99.
