First flight to Silesia by Wizz Air
Poland has been on the wish list for a while and now there are two destinations from Memmingen to the neighbor country, as the first flight to Katowice took off today (Wed June 20th).
Warsaw is listed on the timetable in Memmingen since October 2017 and now Wizz Air added Katowice to their offer. Four times a week – Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday – a plane leaves towards the 300.000 citizen city in Silesia. Situated about 300 km southwest from Warsaw, Katowice is one of the most important industrial locations of Poland and many regional companies have branches there. It used to be mining and heavy industry that were the focus of the area; now services and IT are the dominating industries.
“Katowice is an ideal match to our offer in Eastern Europe” said Sales Director Marcel Schütz, who welcomed the crew. “There is rarely any other airport in Southern Germany with a wide range of Eastern Europe destinations comparable with ours”.
Many historic and private relations between Silesia and the Southwest of Germany may be maintained with this new route. The connection is also important for touristic and business matters as Katowice is just an hour distant to the famous Krakow.
