I've just seen the news that WizzAir have announced their new base will be in Kosice!
They're starting flights from Kosice to Doncaster Sheffield and Milan from September which is awesome news. At the moment there is only one flight to Luton each day at 11am but it looks like the Sheffield flight will depart at 18:40 so we'll be able to fly home after Uni on a Wednesday evening and back on Sunday evening for a long weekend at home.
Flights to Milan also leave at 18:40 on a Friday, returning on a Monday evening which will be perfect for Bank Holiday weekends etc where we have Monday off Uni!
"With the new Kosice services Wizz Air is now offering 11 weekly flights on 3 routes from Kosice, representing over 50% capacity growth year on year (October 2015). The airline believes its expansion in Slovakia, where it flies to two airports, will also benefit the local job market in aviation and tourism sectors as consumers will have access to more low cost services. Seats on the new Kosice routes are already on sale from just EUR 19.99 and can be booked on wizzair.com."
Just had a quick look for the cheapest dates and there are €30 return flights to Milan and €30 return to Sheffield with the Discount Club!
