June saw Aberdeen International Airport welcome Wizz Air to the North East, with the launch of its new route to Gdansk. Announced in January, the newly scheduled service marks the airport’s first direct route between Aberdeen and Poland.

Ben Dempster, newly appointed Operations Director at the airport, was on hand to welcome the arrival of the first flight and its passengers, whilst a host of activities including polish sweet treat giveaways and vodka tasting took place within the terminal.

Visitors to the Baltic coast destination can expect an energetic city crammed with diverse sights and historical thoroughfares, offering a wealth of culture and some of the oldest red brick churches in Europe. Gdansk is also recognised as a key destination for the Aberdeen energy market, strengthening the link for businesses in the North East, and an exciting boost to the airport’s destination portfolio.

Carol Benzie, MD of Aberdeen International Airport, said: “We are delighted to welcome Wizz Air to Aberdeen and are pleased to offer passengers our first direct polish route. This is great opportunity for both leisure and business passengers alike”.

The service will run a twice weekly service, on Monday and Friday, operating with a 180 seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
