From June 30th, the Hungarian low cost airline, Wizz Air, commences two direct weekly flights from the Polish capital, Warsaw, to Agadir. The inauguration of this new service is expected to attract more than 18,000 travellers a year, a number that is expected to increase in the future
Wizz Air is a Hungarian low-cost airline with its head office in Budapest. The airline typically uses secondary airports, serving many cities across Europe, Israel and the United Arab Emirates. It has the largest fleet (77) of any Hungarian airline, although it is not a flag carrier,. It currently serves 35 countries.
The new service from Warsaw to Agadir is the result of a partnership between Wizz Air and the Moroccan National Office of Tourism (ONMT).
These new fights are expected to contribute to increasing the number of Polish tourists visiting Agadir. It is starting from a low base, as last year there were fewer than fifty Polish tourists arriving in Agadir.
Over the last few months, ONMT has been working to strengthen its cooperation with several other airlines including, Exin, a cargo airline based in Lublin, Poland, and German air charter giant, Neckermann.
Morocco World News reports that ONMT representative, Rachid Nassiri, says this new link between Warsaw's Chopin Airport and the Massira Airport in Agadir will achieve a significant increase in Polish tourists.
