Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has announced that it will launch two new flights from London Luton Airport to Poland in December. From December 13, the airline will operate the two new routes on a twice-weekly schedule from Luton Airport, with fares starting at £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 city of tales on the water, Bydgoszcz is home to canals, diverse architecture and a thriving jazz scene, while Lodz is Poland’s third largest city, 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 in Luton reaffirms our commitment to offering passengers ultra-low fares to a variety of exciting destinations.

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

Itinerary Departure time Arriving time
London Luton–Bydgoszcz 12:50 4:00 p.m.
London Luton–Lodz 16:35 17:50

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

Wizz Air withdraws from the former Yugoslavia

Although Wizz Air has recently expanded its route network, the low-cost carrier has also suspended bases in the former Yugoslavia for the upcoming winter season, which begins October 30. Wizz Air is also facing staff shortages, which recently affected some of its bases in the former Yugoslavia, leading to the cancellation of several flights.

Wizz Air’s Sarajevo base will be hit by the most number of route suspensions in the former Yugoslavia this winter. Flight services from Sarajevo to Saarbrücken will be suspended just three months after its launch. The last service of the year between the two cities is scheduled for October 1 and should not resume until March 28.

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

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