Cologne Bonn Airport has announced today that Wizz Air will be adding a new service to Košice from the German gateway this summer. Having just celebrated the start of the ultra-low-cost carrier’s (ULCC) new links to Craiova and Tuzla last week, Wizz Air has confirmed a twice-weekly connection to Slovakia, set to commence from 25 June.
Adding its ninth service from Cologne Bonn, the ULCC faces no direct competition on the airport pair as it launches the airport’s first connection to Slovakia. Becoming Cologne Bonn’s 45th country market, the operation to Slovakia’s largest city becomes the airport’s 14th connection within the Central and Eastern Europe region.
“Kosice is already the third new Eastern Europe destination of Wizz Air in our summer schedule. The new extension of our network strengthens our offer in this important market, “says Michael Garvens, Chairman of the Management Board, Cologne Bonn Airport.
As it adds another destination to its route map, Cologne Bonn Airport witnessed record passenger traffic figures in the first two months of 2017, welcoming over 700,000 passengers each month for the first time in the history of the airport.
