Wizz Air has revealed that the new low-cost route between Katowice and Hurghada would not be launched in this October as it had been previously announced by the airline in July.
According to Daniel de Carvalho, corporate communication manager at Wizz Air, the decision is connected with the present situation in Egypt which remains unstable. The carrier committed oneself to revive the Hurghada route once the Egypt’s situation stabilizes.
The service to Hurghada was about to be started from the week of 31st of October. The airline planned to operate one weekly flight each Thursday from the Katowice International Airport.
Apart from the delay of the African connection, Wizz Air will start a new Katowice – Tel Aviv route operating 3 times a week and starting on 29th of October. The second service from Katowice is Grenoble. Wizz Air will launch flying to this French winter destination on 21st of December. The once-week flight will depart every Saturday.
