|Glasgow Airport has received a further boost as Wizz Air reveals plans to increase capacity on its popular Glasgow to Gdansk route.|
From 01 July 2017 Wizz Air will increase capacity on its Glasgow to Gdansk route with the introduction of the larger Airbus A321 aircraft with capacity for 230 passengers, replacing the 180-seat Airbus A320 currently used. The route will continue to operate twice a week with flights available every Tuesday and Saturday. The increase in capacity is in response to strong and growing customer demand for the route with up to 4,000 passengers travelling between Scotland’s largest city and Gdansk every month. Wizz Air flights between Glasgow Airport and Gdansk are highly-popular with thousands of Polish tourists using the service to visit Scotland’s largest city and other major tourist draws in Western Scotland including Argyll & Bute, Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and many of the country’s top whisky distilleries and golf courses.
Flights to Gdansk are equally as popular among Scottish based passengers. Gdansk is an incredibly pretty place, and when the warm sun shines along its waterfront you could be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere in the Mediterranean instead of the Baltic. But even if the sunshine fools you, the buildings definitely won’t – Gdansk has that unmistakably Baltic, utterly charming look and feel that reminds you where you are! Fly direct from Glasgow Airport to Gdansk and you’re getting a remarkably pretty city break with a beach included, a superb food scene, reasonable prices, beautiful buildings, welcoming people, great shopping, fascinating history, charming architecture, and a lovely laid back atmosphere.
The increase in capacity to Gdansk further cements Glasgow Airport’s position as Scotland's gateway to Poland with direct flights to 9 cities including Gdansk, Krakow, Warsaw and Wroclaw. Glasgow Airports multi-award winning customer service, unrivalled choice of worldwide destinations and its central location with direct motorway access ensures the airport is the preferred choice for travellers from across Scotland including those in Ayrshire, Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and beyond.
Francois Bourienne, Commercial Director, Glasgow Airport, said: “Wizz Air has been a successful addition to our airline roster, providing connectivity to key East European destinations and growing its passenger traffic every month since its arrival here in March 2013.”
Already Scotland's gateway to the world and the nation's fastest growing airport, Glasgow Airport has enjoyed huge success in recent times establishing itself as one of Europe's fastest growing airports with new flights taking-off to over 20 exciting destinations including Brussels, Cape Verde, Dubrovnik, Jamaica, Krakow, Lisbon, Madrid, New York JFK and Valencia - offering passengers over 1 million additional seats.
