Wizz Air has introduced daily flights to Gdansk in Poland from Gatwick, marking the carrier’s fourth destination from the airport.

The route joins the budget carrier’s existing service to Budapest and routes to Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca which started in March.

Fares to Gdansk start from £13.99 and the route will be flown by a 230-seat Airbus A321. As a result of this addition, Gatwick will now offer 23 destinations in Central and Eastern Europe this summer, with almost 34,000 weekly seats.

Gatwick head of airline relations Stephen King said: “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 until today.

“I look forward to working with Wizz Air on continuing our mutual growth trajectory in terms of adding new routes and capacity.”

Gatwick offers direct flights to two Polish destinations, as the Gdansk service joins existing operations to Krakow. Weekly seats to Poland total 3,356.
