Three Airbus A320 aircrafts of the new Polish airline 4You Airlines are now based at the Katowice International Airport. The airline was established by domestic companies mostly connected with the Alfa Star travel agency.
The three 180-seated Airbus A320 aircrafts were leased from the Ukrainian airline YanAir within the ACMI formula (aircraft, crew, maintenance, insurance). The operational base of 4You Airlines will be located at the Katowice International Airport. It is the fourth charter carrier which has decided to choose Katowice for its base. Previously, the airport was also chosen by Polish Enter Air, Small Planet Airlines from Lithuania and Canadian CanJet.
The Katowice Airpot is a leader of charter flights from amongst all Polish regional airports and is so called the Charter Center of South of Poland. In summer 2014, tour operators and travel agencies offer 50 holiday destinations from Katowice.
There were 760 000 charter passengers handled from the airport last year. The Upper Silesian Aviation Group expects the number will reach 820 000 travelers this year.
