Just a few months after the ultra-low cost carrier (ULCC) started services to Craiova and Tuzla, Wizz Air now connects Cologne Bonn Airport with Slovakia. Celebrating the new service today, the twice-weekly link to Košice commenced on 25 June, using the airline’s 180-seat A320s on the 1,040 kilometre sector.
“Our route network into the important eastern European market is steadily growing thanks to Wizz Air, which is a pleasure for us,” informs Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board, Cologne Bonn Airport. He added: “Since many German companies have settled in Košice and its surroundings, the new destination from Cologne Bonn is attractive not only to tourists but also for the business traveller.”
Wizz Air’s recent expansion of its connections from Cologne Bonn means the link to Slovakia’s largest city becomes the ULCC’s eighth destination from the German airport. Launching its first operation to Slovakia, Cologne Bonn’s network now includes 14 connections within the Central and Eastern Europe region.
