Wizzair switches from Prestwick to Glasgow International

7 Feb 2013 by BusinessTraveller

Wizzair is to switch its Scottish operations from Prestwick airport to Glasgow International from March 1.

The low-cost carrier will offer twice-weekly services to both Gdansk and Warsaw, the first time Poland has been served from Glasgow International in 15 years.

Flights to Warsaw will depart Glasgow on Mondays and Fridays at 2110, while services to Gdansk will leave the Scottish city on Thursday and Sundays at 2035.

Glasgow International airport is located around six miles from the city centre, while Glasgow Prestwick is situated around 32 miles south west of the city. The latter airport is mainly used by Ryanair, which also offers flights from there to Warsaw.

Both Wizzair and Ryanair normally use the Polish capital’s Modlin airport, although the facility is currently closed until the end of March for runway repairs, forcing both carriers to operate from Warsaw Chopin for the time being.
