Wizz Air has announced the launch of two new routes from its London Luton base to cities in Turkey and Poland.

The low-cost carrier will operate twice weekly flights on Tuesdays and Saturdays to the Turkish resort city of Antalya from June 22, and three times weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to the Polish city of Rzeszow from September 22. One-way fares will start from £17.99 to Rzeszow, and £36.99 to Antalya.

Owain Jones, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said:

“Although travel is currently restricted, we continue to plan for the easing of restrictions, as we remain committed to providing the UK with affordable, direct flights to exciting destinations. Whether it’s relaxing on the beautiful beaches in Antalya or discovering the historical Old Town in Rzeszow, our low-fare flights offer UK passengers even more choice when deciding on their post-lockdown holiday destination. When the time comes, we will be ready with our industry leading health and safety measures to welcome passengers back on board our ultra-young and efficient aircraft.”

The additional routes mean that Wizz Air will now operate a total of 74 routes from Luton airport. The airline is also set to launch a new route between London Luton and Sarajevo in May, while it operated the inaugural flight of its A321 neo aircraft from London Luton to the Polish city of Poznan in March.
