Wizz Air to start flying routes from Edinburgh Airport

Central and Eastern low-cost carrier Wizz Air will begin operations at Edinburgh Airport in November, with the launch of four routes to popular European city break destinations.

From the beginning of November Wizz Air will connect Scotland’s capital three times a week with the Polish cities of Warsaw and Gdansk, Budapest in Hungary, and Bucharest in Romania. 

These new services will start between 1 November and 2 November and will see an increase in capacity of 250,000 seats on Wizz Air’s Scottish routes in 2020. 

Wizz Air now operates seven routes from Scotland to Eastern Europe’s most vibrant cities. This includes services between Aberdeen and Gdansk, and Glasgow to Budapest and Katowice, as well as the new Edinburgh routes.

Today’s announcement means that Wizz Air now has 360,000 seats on sale on its Scottish routes, representing 240 per cent growth year on year.

Wizz Air’s low fare network now connects UK passengers on 102 routes in 27 countries across Europe and beyond. All routes are served by a fleet of Airbus A320, A321 and A321neo aircraft.
