Will Wizz Air return to the Polish airport after 13 years?  Negotiations are ongoing

The popular carrier is close to returning to the airport near Warsaw. Wizz Air would fly from Modlin, among others. to the port of London Gatwick.

Thirteen years ago, Wizz Air withdrew from the Modlin airport after only a few months. According to the Fly4free.pl website, a popular low-budget carrier is currently negotiating with the port for the possibility of return. The airport near Warsaw is preparing for expansion and hopes to break the Ryanair monopoly. Wizz Air would fly from Modlin next year, among others. to London Gatwick airport.

Wizz Air may return to Modlin

The chances of the Hungarian airline returning to the Modlin airport are increasing. 13 years ago, Wizz Air, together with rival Ryanair, became the first carriers at the newly opened airport in Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki. Unfortunately, due to damage to the runway that occurred in 2013, both airlines temporarily moved to the larger Chopin airport. After the repairs, only Ryanair returned to Modlin. Wizz Air’s authorities, who demanded compensation from the Warsaw airport for the losses incurred, withdrew from further cooperation. According to Fly4free.pl, the decision of the popular carrier may change soon. All because of the expansion of Modlin and negotiations with other airlines, which are to break the monopoly of Ryanair, which is in conflict with the airport authorities. In just 3 years, Modlin will be able to serve up to twice the number of passengers than currently.

Flights to Gatwick

One of the most likely scenarios is the return of Wizz Air, which would fly from Modlin next summer. “The port authorities are talking to another carrier, but they have not disclosed its name yet,” we read. Wizz Air would serve routes including: to Gatwick airport near London, previously only available on routes from Krakow. At the same time, the Hungarian carrier withdrew from the airport in Bydgoszcz, from where it flew to London-Luton airport. Tourists can use this route only until August 31.
