Thus flights to Milan’s airport Bergamo and Doncaster Sheffield Airport in the UK will be available as of June 5 and June 7, respectively. The air carrier also announced an increase of the flights to London to 10 times a week.

“Wizz Air is pleased to announce an earlier opening date of its Košice base,” Daniel de Carvalho from Wizz Air said as cited in the company’s press release. “With our two new routes to Milan Bergamo and Doncaster Sheffield being served three months earlier than initially planned, and with an increased frequency of London Luton flights, our customers can now book this year’s summer holiday on Wizz’s Košice routes.”

Altogether, the new base of Wizz Air will feature a total of 14 flights on a weekly basis during the upcoming summer season.

Originally, Wizz Air planned to launch flights to Milan and Sheffield as of September 2015, using an Airbus A320.

The chairman of the board of directors and executive director of Košice airport Karl Dandler recalled that according to the website anna.aero, Košice airport was one of the five fastest growing airports in Europe in 2014.

“Today’s announcement about the opening of a Wizz Air base in Košice as early as June serves as confirmation that we are moving in the right direction in making Košice airport a real entrance gateway to eastern Slovakia,” said Dandler.

Wizz Air has been operating a regular Košice -London service since September 2013.
