On the launch of the new base, Stephen Jones, Executive Vice President and Deputy CEO at Wizz Air stated
”Today’s announcement underlines our commitment to Poland, our first market where we have launched operations back in 2004. We chose Krakow to be our newest base in Poland as we see the potential and the demand for low cost travel in this city which is one of the most popular tourist destinations as well as a rapidly developing business hub. Our newest base opens on 1 May 2019, with 80 new jobs directly with Wizz Air and starting next year we will offer 12 new and exciting routes. We are sure that our Polish customers will love the convenient schedule of our flights, the easy online booking system at wizzair.com and the wide selection of options to tailor-make the travel experience to each traveller’s needs. Our continuous growth in Poland further strengthens Wizz Air’s commitment to the country, the city and the airport of Krakow, as well as stimulate the tourism and hospitality industries in Poland.”
Wizz Air will join fellow low cost carriers Ryanair, EasyJet, and Jet2, as well as home-carrier LOT Polish Airlines, and a number of national carriers who fly in and out of the airport.
Low Cost Carriers have an amazing ability to open new markets and new routes, and these route plans wouldn’t had been random darts in a destination map. It will be interesting to see which ones survive after a year.
