Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe have today celebrated their inaugural flight from Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) to the South Eastern Polish city of Lublin.
This is Wizz Air’s seventh destination from Liverpool, following the recent launch of their service to Craiova in Romania. The airline also operates flights to Warsaw, Gdansk, Budapest, Riga and Katowice.
Flights to Lublin will operate twice weekly, Wednesday and Saturday on a 180 seater A320. With the commencement of the Lublin flight, Wizz Air will operate up to 21 departing flights per week from Liverpool during Summer 2017.
Lublin has been the epicentre of many cultural and diplomatic events in Poland, making this picturesque city ideal destination for a short trip.
Paul Winfield, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s Aviation Director, said, “We are delighted to welcome new service to Lublin with Wizz Air from Liverpool Airport. Lublin will become the 7th destination operated by Wizz Air from Liverpool and offers passengers to explore a new market from the North West of England. Liverpool Airport offers passengers from the North West and beyond a seamless experience, with faster security times, parking to gate in ten minutes and one of the best airline punctuality records in Europe”.
