Wizz Air launches daily Gatwick-Gdansk route

Daily flights to the Polish city got under way on Saturday (15 June). The route will be operated by a 230-seat Airbus A321.

Gdansk is the latest addition to Wizz’s Eastern European network after launching flights to Budapest, Bucharest and Cluj.

Fares lead in from £13.99 one way.

“We are thrilled to launch our fourth low-fare service from Gatwick,” said Wizz head of marketing and communications Tamara Vallois.

“Gatwick airport is now connected to the capital of the Pomeranian region, with daily flights which brings an ideal opportunity to visit the beautiful Baltic coast and the Tri-City – Poland’s most famous resort area with health spas, sandy beaches and numerous attractions.”

The route is the 18th new service to launch at Gatwick this year, with British Airways to launch a six-times weekly service to Milan Bergamo on 1 September.

Wizz said the route complemented its existing Gatwick-Krakow service, growing weekly seats to Poland from Gatwick to 3,356 and making the country the airport’s 27th largest country market of 64.

“This new route from Wizz Air proves Gatwick still has room for network growth,” said Stephen King, Gatwick’s head of airline relations.

“From a standing start in June 2016, when Wizz Air commenced daily flights from Bucharest, we have grown to become the carrier’s third largest operation in the UK with the start of our fourth destination to Gdansk – an unserved route from Gatwick.”
