Wizz Air, one of Europe’s fastest growing airlines and the leading low cost carrier in Central and Eastern Europe today announces that it will begin operations at Edinburgh Airport, with the launch of four routes to popular European city break destinations.
From the beginning of November Wizz Air will connect Scotland’s capital with the Polish cities of Warsaw and Gdansk, Budapest in Hungary, and Bucharest in Romania. Fares start from £16.99* and can be booked from today at wizzair.com.
These new services will see an increase in capacity of 250,000 seats on Wizz Air’s Scottish routes in 2020, creating over 180** indirect jobs in the local Edinburgh area.
Wizz Air now operates seven routes from Scotland to Eastern Europe’s most vibrant cities. This includes services between Aberdeen and Gdansk, and Glasgow to Budapest and Katowice, as well as the new Edinburgh routes. Today’s announcement means that Wizz Air now has 360 thousand seats on sale on its Scottish routes, representing 240% growth year on year.
Wizz Air’s low fare network now connects UK passengers on 102 routes in 27 countries across Europe and beyond. All routes are served by a young fleet of ultra-efficient Airbus A320, A321 and A321neo aircraft, meaning that Wizz Air emits the lowest CO2 emissions per passenger amongst its competitors.
