Wizz Air has begun operating twice-weekly flights between Birmingham and Warsaw on Mondays and Fridays, with the carrier due to inaugurate its twice-weekly Birmingham–Budapest service (which will fly on Tuesdays and Saturdays) on 15 September, 2015.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating our very first flights from Warsaw and Budapest to Birmingham,” commented Tamara Mshvenieradze, Wizz Air’s corporate communications manager. “Birmingham is becoming our eighth UK airport with two Wizz routes that connect the West Midlands with two of the largest capitals of Central and Eastern Europe and we look forward to a fruitful partnership with Birmingham Airport as well as to seeing many happy passengers on board.”
Welcoming Wizz Air’s first flight from Warsaw to Birmingham, chief executive of the latter airport, Paul Kehoe, remarked, “It is fantastic to welcome another new airline to Birmingham; our seventh this year. Both Warsaw and Budapest are popular tourist destinations that have not been served from Birmingham for some time, so we are extremely pleased to be able to offer our customers even more choice and thank Wizz Air for recognising the Midlands as a new market opportunity.”
Polish Honorary Consul for the West Midlands, Councillor Fran Oborski MBE, continued, “With such a large Polish community living in the Midlands, this new Warsaw service will be welcomed by many who need greater connectivity to visit friends and family. Warsaw is also a stunning city with varied architecture and a thriving nightlife and music scene, so I am certain that the route will also be popular with Midlanders wanting to explore Poland’s fascinating capital city.”
