The new air link will be launched on Saturday, October 10, and will become the eighth regular connection from Košice Airport. Wizz Air already offers three destinations from its Slovak base in the eastern-Slovak city, Košice – London Luton, Milan Bergamo (Italy) and Doncaster Sheffield (UK).

The new route, which was announced in August, will involve two flights per week – on Tuesdays and Saturdays, the TASR newswire wrote three days before the launch.
