New Flights Take Off on Kosice-London Route

Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, is set to launch a new service from Slovakia’s second biggest city Kosice to London Luton tomorrow, 17 September. The route will initially operate twice a week and should increase to 4 flights per week from 27 October.

Juraj Toth of Kosice Airport confirmed at a press briefing on Sunday that the first flight from London to Kosice will arrive in Tuesday afternoon as scheduled. Wizz Air has already sold several thousand tickets for the flights, showing that demand is there.

Slovak air traffic will hugely benefit from stimulation by low air fares, attracting more passengers in Kosice. Slovaks are very keen to live and work abroad, primarily in Western Europe. The access to low cost air travel between Slovakia and the United Kingdom will be welcomed by tourists, business travelers and the Slovakian Diaspora.

Flights on Wizz Air’s new route from Kosice to London Luton are on sale and can be booked on wizzair.com with fares starting from just € 29,99 (one way, taxes included). Source: Wizz Air

    With public transport being so very slow in Slovakia, why can’t flights operate from a central location? Sliač is in the centre of Slovakia.
    It’s great that the flight is only two and a half hours but it could take up to 4 hours to get to Kosice to catch the flight!

    Good news indeed. I just hope Wizz open a route to one of the UKs northern airports.
    Will the tourist industry be targeting the UK now these flights are available? I hope so.

    Sadly all the Euro/UK flights competition at Bratislava airport has disappeared.. SkyEurope, Easyjet … and Ryanair prices do now creep over the 100 euro mark for the round trips, rather than the 50 euro they once where.

    I encourage Wizz come to Ba and fly to one of the London airports, Gatwick, Luton, Stanstead ..even Southend airport is now an option ….anything NOT to fly with the o`Leary cowboys.
