Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, this week announced that it was adjusting its network and capacity plan to reflect changing customer demand. In June 2018, the airline will close its base at Lublin Airport and redeploy its Lublin-based Airbus A320 aircraft to consolidate operations at Katowice Airport (KTW).
The capacity adjustment allows Wizz Air to launch seven new routes, which will connect Katowice with Porto, Munich, Lviv, Kharkiv, Malaga, Faro and Podgorica. Seats on the new connections are already on sale.
Wizz Air’s first flight took off from the Polish Katowice Airport in May 2004 and since then, the airline has constantly expanded its operations from the city. In the first ten months of 2017 over 1,7 million passengers flew with Wizz Air to and from KTW, 17 percent more than in the same period of the previous year.
Underlining its commitment to the region, the airline has recently announced that it will deploy one additional aircraft at its Katowice base in 2018 expanding the fleet to 7 aircrafts, including three A321 Airbuses by April, and growing its team to over 250 dedicated local employees.
Next year Wizz Air will have over 2,73 million seats on sale on its Katowice routes, which represents a 27 percent growth year over year. The airline now offers 42 routes from KTW.
