Budget airline Wizz Air has announced that flights to popular European cities of Warsaw and Gdansk in Poland, Budapest in Hungary, and Bucharest in Romania will begin from Edinburgh Airport in December.
All routes will be served by a young fleet of ultra-efficient Airbus A320 and A321 aircraft.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Wizz Air to Edinburgh and adding a new carrier at Scotland’s busiest airport. We know there is a large Polish diaspora within our neighbouring communities in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife, but we also know people in Scotland have a thirst for travel so having Wizz onboard at Edinburgh is very exciting for us.
“Offering choice to our passengers is what we aim to do as it is that choice which enriches our knowledge of other countries and cultures while also taking Scotland to the world. Tourism plays such a crucial part in Scotland’s economy and it’s important that we look to broaden our horizons in the most sustainable way possible and demonstrate the fantastic offering that our country has.”
Owain Jones, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK said: “We’re delighted to announce even more opportunities for our Scottish customers to experience Wizz Air’s low-fares on new routes connecting Edinburgh with some of Central and Eastern Europe’s most dynamic cities, flying onboard one of Europe’s youngest, most efficient aircraft fleets.
"Offering unique cultural, architectural, gastronomic and nightlife experiences, our customers travelling to Budapest, Bucharest, Gda?sk and Warsaw will also enjoy fantastic value-for-money - making pounds stretch further.
"The WIZZ team looks forward to welcoming customers old and new on-board our ultra-efficient fleet of Airbus aircraft very soon.”
