Wizz Air Warsaw Chopin

This week Wizz Air stationed its seventh aircraft at Warsaw Chopin, with the additional unit allowing the airline to open seven new routes from the Polish capital to Agadir, Bratislava, Bucharest, Kiev Zhulyany, Lamezia Terme, Lyon and Nice. With these launches, Wizz Air now serves 44 routes from Chopin this summer.

  • Wizz Air saw double sevens at Warsaw Chopin (WAW) this week, with the carrier not only adding a seventh based aircraft at the airport, but the ULCC has also commenced seven new routes. The airline now links the Polish capital to Agadir (AGA), Bratislava (BTS), Bucharest (OTP), Kiev Zhulyany (IEV), Lamezia Terme (SUF), Lyon (LYS) and Nice (NCE), with Agadir and Lyon being new airports on the carrier’s route map. With these additions, Wizz Air now links Chopin to 44 destinations in S17. Away from Wizz Air’s expansion from Poland, the airline has also begun a four times weekly service between the capitals of Bulgaria and Slovakia. The 777-kilometre link from Sofia (SOF) to Bratislava will be flown on the airline’s A320s facing no direct competition. The average sector length of the carrier’s new routes from Chopin is 1,407 kilometres, while the average weekly frequency is 2.9. Three of the routes see direct competition from Polish national carrier LOT Polish Airlines. See how Agadir Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world
