Wizz Air resumes non-stop service to Katowice, expanding the range of routes offered at Malmö Airport
European low-cost airline Wizz Air continues to have a positive view of the Swedish market and has relaunched its route to Katowice in southern Poland. During the summer season, the airline will have two weekly departures, on Mondays and Fridays, until the end of October.
Wizz Air is making a major investment in Sweden and in 2021 launched three new routes between Malmö airport and Banja Luka, Sarajevo and Tirana. With the resumption of the service to Katowice, which had been interrupted during the pandemic, it now offers a total of 14 direct connections from Malmö to destinations in Central and Eastern Europe.
International traffic at Malmö Airport consists largely of Wizz Air passengers, and the increased access is important for both holidaymakers and people traveling to visit family, relatives and friends. Travel is still affected by the Covid pandemic, but demand for flights continues to grow.
Katowice is located in southern Poland, just northeast of Krakow, and has undergone a major transformation in recent years – from a city of heavy industry to a modern regional capital and a metropolitan area of 2 million inhabitants. It is one of the greenest cities in Poland, where forests and parks occupy almost half of the area. In recent years, Katowice has also taken on greater environmental responsibility and was the first city in the country to introduce a low-emission economy plan.
The proximity between the two cities means that it is possible to fly to Katowice Airport to also visit Krakow, Poland’s second largest city and a popular weekend destination.
Wizz Air will be the only carrier to serve Malmö Airport (MMX) – Katowice Airport (KTW) route, which will be the only direct air link between the Greater Copenhagen area and Katowice.
The route was relaunched on March 28 and is operated twice a week on Mondays and Fridays.
