Wizz Air, the largest low-cost, low-fare airline connecting Western and Eastern Europe has today signed a five-year agreement with Liverpool John Lennon Airport which will see the continuation of Wizz Air’s established Liverpool route network for the next five years.

The use of cost and time efficient airports is crucial to Wizz Air and management at Liverpool John Lennon Airport are experts in providing best in class service and efficiency, combined with the lowest possible cost base to the low cost airline market. This has been an attractive combination for Wizz Air, who is committed to offering the best value for money for their customers. Wizz Air currently operates to four Eastern European destinations from Liverpool; Warsaw, Gdansk and Katowice in Poland and more recently to Vilnius in Lithuania.

Around 1.3 million passengers have travelled with Wizz Air through Liverpool since selecting it as their 2nd UK base in late 2004. Wizz Air’s low-cost flights have continued to prove particularly popular with Polish communities across the North of England, whilst the success of this year’s Euro 2012 football championships co-hosted by Poland is expected to see the numbers of visitors from the UK to Poland increase.

Daniel de Carvalho, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: "Today is a good day both for Wizz Air and for Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Wizz Air delivers low fares combined with excellent customer service and we partner with airports that work by the same philosophy of low costs and good service. Our partnership with Liverpool has stimulated low fare air traffic in this region connecting the North of England with exciting Central and Eastern European cities. With this renewed partnership we expect our passenger volume to grow further."
Chris Harcombe, Aviation Development Manager for the Airport commented,

"We have worked closely with Wizz Air since they launched services in the UK market and have been delighted with their performance at Liverpool since our partnership began. In recent months we’ve worked hard with the airline to understand how best to realise their ambitions for the North West market. Our business model is focused on providing our airline partners with industry leading levels of operational efficiency, the lowest possible cost base and excellent customer service, whilst giving access to one of the UK’s most densely populated regions outside of London. Today’s announcement is recognition of the strength of that proposition and further reinforces the continued partnership between Wizz Air and Liverpool John Lennon Airport."
