The move, which will take place on 1 March 2013, will see ryanair become the only airline to operate from Prestwick Airport.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Wizz Air on board which is yet more good news for Glasgow Airport. Not only will it provide our customers with greater choice, it will further strengthen our connectivity with some of Europe’s major cities and it means we can add Poland to our long list of destinations after an absence of more than 15 years.

“Wizz Air is an ambitious and rapidly growing airline which carried over 12 million passengers in 2012 alone, and we are looking forward to working alongside the team at Wizz to ensure it enjoys further growth and success at Glasgow. This announcement underlines our commitment to expanding our route network and delivering the routes and services our customers demand.”

Wizz Air has been operating flights to Poland from Scotland since 2006.
