Wizz Air launches Rzeszów to Eindhoven; its eighth Polish route to the Dutch airport

Wizz Air begins Rzeszów to Eindhoven; its eighth Polish route to the Dutch airport

Rzeszów is a new airport for Wizz Air and is its ninth in Poland.

Wizz Air began Rzeszów to Eindhoven on 15 December, with the Polish airport new for the carrier. 

Almost 6,000 indirectly flew from Rzeszów to Amsterdam in 2019, booking data shows.

The 1,181-kilometre route to Eindhoven will typically operate twice-weekly.  But Wizz Air’s website shows that it is a limited-time affair, operating until 9 January and then only in February. Will it operate beyond then?

On the first day, the ULCC operated Gdansk – Eindhoven – Rzeszow – Eindhoven – Gdansk.

Rzeszów is Wizz Air’s ninth airport in Poland, with the country the carrier’s top by seat capacity.  However, Romania is its most profitable nation – with Poland third.

Wizz Air has 26 routes from Eindhoven including eight – of the airline’s nine – Polish destinations. Only Szczecin isn’t served.

Dean Boljuncic, Eindhoven’s Head of Aviation Development & Partnerships, told us that: “This is a very important connection between Eindhoven Airport along with its surrounding Brainport region and Eastern Europe, especially for students and employees from these two High-Tech areas.

“The route is more focused on the future. Due to the similarity between the two destinations, we expect that after the pandemic, this will become a popular route that in addition to the VFR and economic travel motives, will also initiate leisure demand, both ways.”
