Hungarian budget carrier Wizz Air has announced it will launch two new flights from London’s Luton Airport to Poland in December. From December 13th, the airline will operate both new routes on a twice-weekly schedule from Luton Airport, with fares starting from £21.99 ($24.75).

Wizz Air expands from London Luton

The two new Polish cities will be Bydgoszcz and Lodz, considerably unique choices for the low-cost carrier. A storybook city on the water, Bydgoszcz is home to canals, diverse architecture, and a thriving jazz scene, while Lodz is the third-largest city in Poland, known for its colorful street art and Jewish heritage.

Marion Geoffroy, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said:

“Wizz Air is pleased to announce the launch of two routes from London Luton Airport to two brand new Wizz Air stations in Poland. Our continued growth at Luton reaffirms our commitment to offering passengers ultra-low fares to various exciting destinations.”

Leaving on Tuesdays & Saturdays, the flight schedule is as follows:

Route Departure time Arrival time
London Luton – Bydgoszcz 12:50 16:00
London Luton – Lodz 16:35 17:50

While the aircraft type is yet to be determined, the budget carrier only operates an all-Airbus fleet consisting of 50 Airbus A320-200s, 6 Airbus A320neos, 34 Airbus A321-200s, and 53 Airbus A321neos. If the 180-seater Airbus A320s are used, Wizz Air will offer approximately 360 seats to each Polish destination weekly. The 186-seater Airbus A320neo would offer 372, and the Airbus A321-200 would offer about 460 seats weekly.

Wizz Air shrinks off former Yugoslavia

Although Wizz Air has been on an expansion spree for its route network as of late, the low-cost carrier has also been on a suspending spree for its bases in the former Yugoslavia for the upcoming winter season, which commences on October 30th. Wizz Air has also been facing staffing shortages, which have recently affected some of its bases in the former Yugoslavia, resulting in the cancellation of several flights.

Wizz Air’s Sarajevo base will be hit with the most significant number of route suspensions in the former Yugoslavia this winter. Flight services from Sarajevo to Saarbruecken will be suspended just three months from its launch. The last service of the year between the two cities is scheduled for October 1st and is only expected to resume on March 28th.

The Sarajevo-Saarbruecken route becomes the fifth suspension from Wizz Air from the base in winter, joining the previously reported Charleroi, Sandefjord, Treviso, and Beauvais. However, the base suspension continues as Wizz Air will also suspend routes from its Belgrade base by pausing flight operations to Hahn, with the last flight between the two cities scheduled for September 29th, resuming on March 29th.

Meanwhile, from its Skopje base, Wizz Air is suspending flights to Malta from October 29th, resuming only from March 29th. Malta is the fourth route suspended, joining Billund, Turin, and Turku. The low-cost carrier will also temporarily suspend flight services from Skopje to Vaxjo from October 2nd until November 2nd.
