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