Even before the start of its first route from Bordeaux, since it will open services to Budapest from September 22, the low cost airline Wizz Air has already announced a new route to Warsaw ....
...as of spring 2018. An exclusivity on the west of France for Bordeaux Airport which thus welcomes the largest low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe. This announcement is part of the development strategy that Wizz Air is pursuing in France and after the airports of Paris-Beauvais, Nice and Lyon. With this new destination, the Bordeaux hub is further accelerating the development of its network of routes to Eastern Europe.
Wizz Air 02The Bordeaux-Warsaw flights will be operated twice a week by Airbus A320 on Wednesdays and Sundays. The opening of this first route to Poland from Bordeaux will allow passengers to reach its capital in less than 3 hours.
According to Pascal Personne, Airport Director: "This route to Poland is a first for Bordeaux Airport. It is obviously a great satisfaction for the airport teams. First of all, because it offers travelers from the entire region, whether they are on business or pleasure, the possibility of reaching an unprecedented but economically important country in Europe, by direct flight from Bordeaux and discovering its magnificent capital, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also an opportunity to see the great confidence that a leading airline such as Wizz Air has in the Bordeaux market and more broadly in the region.
Gabor Vasarhelyi, Director of Communications at Wizz Air, said, " We are delighted to announce the opening of another promising route from Bordeaux Airport with Wizz Air. Along with Budapest, Warsaw is the second city we serve at low cost on our routes from Bordeaux, and we are sure that French customers will enjoy discovering this dynamic Eastern European capital, known as the city of palaces, royal gardens and large parks. At the same time, we are convinced that our discounted fares will attract more Polish customers to southwestern France, which could boost the region's tourism and hotel industry. Tickets are already on sale from 49.99€* at wizzair.com. Our friendly crews look forward to welcoming you with a smile aboard one of our new aircraft."
As a reminder, as of September 22, Wizz Air will operate two weekly flights to Budapest, on Mondays and Fridays, from the low cost billi terminal,
