Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, today announced a new route from Poznan to the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. Commencing on 31 March 2018, the newest WIZZ service will be operated with three weekly flights, on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Seats on the route are already on sale and can be booked on wizzair.com or via the WIZZ mobile app from just PLN 169 / EUR 39.99*, which includes a free hand luggage allowance of up to 55x40x23cm maximum dimensions.
Poznan was one of the first cities Wizz Air brought its low fares to in 2005 and since then, the airline carried over 3.5 million passengers to and from Poznan Airport. WIZZ has now two aircraft based in Poznan employing 70 customer-oriented crew, who delivers excellent service on each WIZZ flight. In 2018 Wizz Air will have 680,000 seats on sale on its Poznan routes, which represents 20% growth year over year. With its newest Reykjavik route, Wizz Air now connects Poznan with 11 cities in eight countries.
Wizz Air’s commitment to Polish customers is underlined by the strong growth at its other seven Polish airports as well. In the first nine months of 2017 over 6 million passengers flew with WIZZ to and from Poland, 15% more than in the same period of the previous year. The airline’s Polish operations do not only provide affordable access on WIZZ’s lowest fares between Poland and the rest of Europe, but also stimulate the local job market in aviation and tourism sectors, supporting more than 5000 jobs** this year in associated industries throughout the country.
Characterized by eclectic and colorful houses and an excellent cuisine, Reykjavik is the city of exciting possibilities surrounded by incredible landscapes. It is the capital of Iceland, which has recently become a popular destination among travelers looking for an active yet relaxing holiday in a beautiful environment. Iceland is widely known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”: the country is home to some of the largest glaciers in Europe as well as some of the world’s most active volcanoes.
Wizz Air now offers over 150 routes from its eight Polish airports.
Gabor Vasarhelyi, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: „We are thrilled to announce the addition of another long-awaited route to our Polish network. Our low fares now connect Poznan with Reykjavik and we are sure customers will enjoy visiting Iceland, the country of breathtaking landscapes, glaciers and waterfalls. With nearly 700,000 seats on sale on our Poznan routes in the upcoming year, we stay committed to our Polish customers and the visitors of the country and keep on offering the lowest possible fares. Our friendly local crew looks forward to welcoming you on board one of our new aircaft with a smile!”
