Wizz Air premiers sixth aircraft in Katowice

Wizz Air Katowice Malta

Wizz Air launched flights between Katowice and Malta on 10 March, one of four new services that the airline launched from the Polish airport this week. Katowice is the airline’s sixth largest base, with it being home to 3.7% of the airline’s weekly seat capacity.

Wizz Air opened its fifth route to Malta on 10 March when it commenced flights from Katowice to the Mediterranean island. In welcoming the new service, Malta Airport baked this splendid cake. Wizz Air also links Malta to Bucharest, Budapest, Sofia and Warsaw Chopin.

While 10 March was the day on which Wizz Air opened a connection between Cluj-Napoca and Bratislava, it was also the day on which the airline celebrated carrying its seven millionth passenger from the Romanian airport. The ULCC will operate flights between Cluj-Napoca and Bratislava twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays), with no other airline serving the route. To celebrate both the seven millionth passenger and the new route to Bratislava, the Romanian airport baked a cake while a press conference was also conducted by David Ciceo, CEO of Cluj-Napoca Airport and Sorina Ratz, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air.

  • Wizz Air added a sixth aircraft to its Katowice (KTW) base this week, with the extra capacity allowing for four new routes to be launched, starting on 10 March with services to Malta (MLA) and Reykjavik/Keflavik (KEF). Routes to Catania (CTA) and Lisbon (LIS) followed, launching on 11 and 12 March respectively. All four routes will be flown twice-weekly on the airline’s A320s. Along with these routes, the carrier also opened a new service from its Cluj-Napoca (CLJ) base to Bratislava (BTS) this week. The average sector length of the airline’s five new routes is 1,812 kilometres, with none facing any direct competition. Katowice is Wizz Air’s sixth largest base and has 3.7% of the airline’s weekly seat capacity, while Cluj-Napoca is seventh largest with 3.4%.
