Coventry boosted by Wizz additions

Coventry Airport has announced more flights are being scheduled by Wizz Air.From next March the airline will be operating 3 times weekly (Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday) services to Gdansk in northern Poland, using a
180 seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

Chris Orphanou, Managing Director of Coventry Airport, said:  “Existing
Wizz Air services between Katowice and Coventry have been extremely
successful and we are delighted that the airline is complementing its
existing services with the introduction of new flights to the important
Polish commercial centre of Gdansk.  The West Midlands region has strong
historical links with Poland and these new flights are great news for
the Polish community, business and leisure travellers.”


Gdansk, situated on the southern coast of Gdansk Bay on the Baltic Sea,
is the sixth largest city in Poland and can trace its history back to
AD980.  The city has been a principle seaport since medieval times and
subsequently a major ship-building centre.  Gdansk is famous worldwide
as the birthplace of the Solidarity movement, which under the leadership
of Lech Walesa, played a major role in bringing an end to Communist rule
in Poland. 
“Coventry airport offers the quality of service that is sought by the
low cost carriers - expedient passenger departures, fast aircraft
turn-around times and equally quick passenger arrivals - less than
15mins from aircraft seat to terminal exit - key to a low-fares
airline,” said Chris Orphanou.  Coventry Airport’s management is
committed to attracting new airlines and routes to the West Midlands’
Airport and has recently announced a reduction in the fees and charges
levied at the airlines using the airport, in some cases fees have been
reduced by up to 60%.
