Wizz Air plans to carry 2.9 million passengers from Gdańsk in 2019
In 2019, Wizz Air wants to carry 2.9 million passengers from the Gdansk Airport, in northern Poland. This year, the carrier will launch four new routes from Gdańsk: to Oslo-Sandefjord-Torp, Bodo, Bremen and Kutaisi.
President of Wizz Air Jozsef Varadi announced his airline's plans at a press conference in Gdańsk on Wednesday. He emphasised that the city is a "very stable and predictable" base on the map of airports used by Wizz Air.
According to data for 2019, 51 percent of the passengers served by Gdańsk Airport are Wizz Air passengers.
"Of course, we’re proud of the fact that every other passenger at the Gdańsk airport takes advantage of our offer. From year to year, we've been noting an increase in ticket sales in Gdańsk. Over the past 15 years, we've had 17.4 million passengers here. In 2018, 2.4 million passengers benefitted from our services in Gdańsk. This year, we’re planning for that number to reach 2.9 million," Varadi said.
In 2019, Wizz Air will introduce four new flight routes from Gdańsk: to Norway - Oslo-Sandefjord-Torp (from February 20); Bodo (from May 22); and from April 2, to Bremen, Germany and Kutaisi, Georgia.
Wizz Air offers flights to a total of 33 destinations in 14 countries, from the Gdańsk Airport.
The airline has been operating in Poland since May 2004.
