Ultra-low-cost carrier Wizz Air is gearing up for an expansion with two new routes at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. This addition will significantly enhance air travel options between Sweden and Europe.

Fastest Growing and Sustainable

Wizz Air has established itself as a formidable force in European aviation. Currently operating from two of Swedavia’s airports – Göteborg Landvetter and Malmö, Wizz Air’s entry into Stockholm Arlanda Airport underscores its rapid growth trajectory in the Nordic region.

The two newly launched routes from Stockholm Arlanda will offer direct flights to Budapest and Gdansk. These flights will be serviced by the advanced Airbus A320 and A321, ensuring a comfortable journey for passengers.

Boost for Tourism

These new routes are more than just travel pathways; they symbolize strengthening cultural ties and booming tourism. Stockholm, a popular tourist hub, has seen increased interest from Poland and Hungary. Introducing these routes will further cement its position on the European travel map.

On the Swedish side, cities like Budapest, famed for its thermal baths and rich history, and Gdansk, a cultural melting pot on the Polish Riviera, have been attracting Swedish tourists in droves.

Welcome New Connections

Elizabeth Axtelius, the Director of Aviation Business at Swedavia, said, “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Wizz Air to Stockholm Arlanda Airport, and we look forward to continuing to build on our long cooperation with the company. The new direct routes not only improve access to Europe from the Stockholm region but also access to Sweden. Swedavia’s role is to enable people to meet, and Wizz Air’s presence at Stockholm Arlanda will not only be appreciated by those who want to travel to visit family and friends, but also by Swedish tourists who want to discover Hungary and Poland and vice versa as well as by those who travel for business.”

Zsuzsa Trubek, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, expressed her confidence in the new venture, emphasizing the shorter trips and modern fleet’s benefits. “We are delighted to add Arlanda as our newest station to our evergrowing network and with that offer flights to our customers to the biggest airport of Sweden’s capital. We are positive that our passengers travelling from Stockholm will appreciate the proximity of the airport and will fly with us to exciting destinations, which will also translate into saved time and money thanks to a shorter trip between downtown and the airport. Our crew is looking forward to welcoming our passengers on board of one of the youngest and modern WIZZ fleet starting from 31st of October”,
