In what is a very significant move for BAA (as it is still called on the web site), Glasgow Airport has won the Wizz Air business from rival Prestwick.
Glasgow is owned by Heathrow Airport Ltd, Edinburgh by Global Infrastructure Partners who control both Gatwick and London City, and Prestwick by New Zealand company Infratil, who also operate Auckland International Airport.
Wizz Air claims to be the largest low-cost, low-fare airline in Central and Eastern Europe. The carrier, which began operating its low-fare services between Scotland and Poland in 2006, will now offer twice-weekly flights to the Polish capital and the Baltic Sea from 1 March.
Wizz Air commenced services in 2004 and has since grown to offer over 250 low-fare routes across 30 countries connecting 84 destinations. In the UK currently it operates out of Doncaster, Liverpool and Luton. www.wizzair.com
