In this summer season there is an extension of the flight schedule of Kraków Airport, mainly owing to the presence of three new carriers. As we have already mentioned, on the 25th of April Air Berlin started operating flights from Kraków to Berlin. But it is only a beginning.
Windjet, a low-fare Italian carrier, will operate flights to Forli, a city in central Italy, not far away from Bologna. Forli, known as the ‘summer capital of Italy’, boasts very good connections to Ravenna, Florence, Bologna and Rimini. More exotic destinations will be offered by Iceland Express, launching flights from Kraków to Reykjavik in June. What else?
Norwegian Air Shuttle launched a new connection from Kraków to Copenhagen in April, with flights operating three times a week. Our national carrier, PLL LOT, connected Kraków and Athens twice a week. Also, Finnair, offering flights to Helsinki and Jet2 with its link to Leeds/Bradford, return to Kraków. The second connection to the United States, this time to New York, will be operated in the summer season by LOT. Other airlines have decided to increase their number of weekly operations. A couple of months ago Brussels Airlines announced its plans to add another flight to Brussels to its summer schedule, which means five flights to the capital city of Belgium per week. Iberia has followed suit and now operates two flights to Madrid weekly and plans to gradually increase this number to 4 in the summer months. anagazawe.com Norwegian will increase the number of flights to Oslo Gardoemoen to seven times per week, but this will happen at the expense of connections to another Oslo airport – Rygge.
Overall, the airport will offer 46 connections to 38 airports in 34 cities in the summer season. Presently, scheduled flights are handled by twenty carriers, most of which are traditional airlines.
