Wizz Air will launch a route from Turku Airport to Luton Airport, London from 2 July 2019.
Operated with Airbus 320-200 aircraft, the route will be the first direct one from Turku to London. It will be operated three times a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, said a Finavia press release.
“We have had new route openings this year with Wizz Air and we are delighted to deepen our cooperation. Direct route to London extends the network from Turku considerably and serves both business and leisure travellers,” said Finavia Senior Vice President of Airport Network Jani Jolkkonen.
The route is very important for Turku from the point of view of tourism. London and other new route openings are expected to boost tourism in Turku. Turku Airport provides a smooth customer experience and interesting destinations at a competitive price.
“This is fantastic news for Turku and we are very happy about it. Turku is actively developing the economic growth in the southwest Finland and the direct route between London and Turku serves the needs of the entire business sector in the region. We are sure that it interests and benefits both the existing companies and companies that are seeking growth in the Turku region,” said Turku Mayor Minna Arve.
