Wizz Air lands at Bristol Airport
Created: 18th Dec 2014
A new airline will be flying from Bristol Airport next year following Wizz Air’s announcement that it will operate a twice-weekly service to Katowice from 26 June 2015.Wizz Air is the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe*, and the Katowice service makes Bristol the 106th airport in its route network. Flights will operate every Monday and Friday.
Katowice is the principal city of the Upper Silesian region of Poland and is a centre for science and industry, as well as being home to an eclectic mix of architectural styles with Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings alongside Modernist structures from the Communist era, and a neo-Classical cathedral which is the largest in Poland.
As well as making an interesting city break destination for visitors from the UK, the Wizz Air service will provide a convenient link for Poles from the region living and working in the South West.
Shaun Browne, Aviation Director at Bristol Airport, said:
“We are delighted to welcome Wizz Air to the South West of the UK. The Katowice service will be a popular addition to the route network available from Bristol Airport, further strengthening links with Poland.”
Wizz Air’s Daniel d Carvalho said:
“With six UK airports, the Wizz low cost offer is a great opportunity for UK consumers explore Central and Eastern Europe and we look forward to carrying many passengers on our new Bristol-Katowice service.”
Tickets are now on sale from £25.99 one way (including taxes, non-optional charges and one small cabin bag) and can be booked at wizzair.com. Flights will be operated by a 180-seat Airbus A320.
