Wizz enlarges Nordic-Polish flights

The low-cost airline is growing fast in Poland, now flying to Stockholm from Szczecin by the German border.

Wizz Air has announced a new route to Sweden starting in late spring, between Stockholm Skavsta and Szczecin, a city in north-western Poland next to the border with Germany.

The flights will begin on May 14 with two weekly flights on Mondays and Fridays. The budget carrier says that seats on the new route are on sale from SEK 99 (€10) one-way including taxes.

The route from the biggest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe “will strengthen business relations between Poland and Sweden, while also stimulating the local aviation, tourism and hospitality industries,” the carrier says.

Wizz Air now connects Szczecin with four destinations, all of them in Scandinavia – Bergen, Oslo Torp, Stavanger and now Stockholm Skavsta. During last year it carried 152,000 passengers on these Szczecin routes.

Wizz in Poland
Wizz has a strong presence in Poland, flying from eight airports, namely Warsaw, Katowice, Gdansk, Poznan, Wroclaw, Lublin, Olsztyn Mazury and Szczecin. In 2017, 8.1 million passengers travelled on these Polish routes, up 17% year-on-year.

Following a huge expansion already revealed for 2018 and beyond, Wizz Air will have 25 aircraft and 1000 customer-oriented crew based in Poland by the end of the year. Overall, the Polish route count now stands at 166 to 30 countries.

“The newest Wizz service connects Szczecin with Stockholm two times a week providing business and leisure travellers with a convenient, low-fare travel option between North-West Poland and the capital of Sweden,” said Gabor Vasarhelyi, Wizz Air’s corporate communications manager.
