Eastern Slovakia will have two new flight connections with Northern England as of October. After Wizz Air announced restart of its route to Doncaster Sheffield (Monday and Friday) on 23rd October, also Ryanair is asking for attention.
Ryanair, the largest European airline, will fly from Košice to Liverpool´s John Lennon Airport. The inaugural flight is planned for 25th October. The connection will be operated twice a week on Wednesday and Sunday. Departures from Kosice are planned on Wednesday at 20:15 and on Sunday at 11:15. The flights will be operated by Ryanair´s Boeing 737-800 with capacity 189 seats.
One-way fares start from 19,99 EUR and they are already available at www.ryanair.com.
Michael Tmej, the CEO and chairman of the management board of Košice Airport said: “Northern England has been the crucial part of our long term strategic plans. We are pleased that we managed to close the deal with our partners about two new routes in such a short time. Doncaster Sheffield is proven and successful route where Wizz Air will return after 2,5 years break. We are excited about our cooperation with Ryanair on totally new route to Liverpool that opens a lot of opportunities for travellers in both Eastern Slovakia and Northern England. It actually is a big success and trust from airlines to our region that despite extremely complicated situation in the aviation industry we are able to continuously improve air accessibility of Košice and the whole region of east Slovakia.”
After the measures taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 were lifted, Czech Airlines (to Prague), Austrian Airlines (to Vienna), Ryanair (to London Stansted and to Prague) and Wizz Air (to London Luton) have already restarted their flight operations at Košice Airport. Restart of flights operated by Eurowings and LOT Polish Airlines is subject to a decision of a respective airlines.
