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
