Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) is planning to resume flights to Slovakia from mid-August through the introduction of a new scheduled route between Kosice and London Luton. According to Slovakian news reports, the route will be “financially supported” (i.e subsidized) by Košice’s tourism authority as a means of boosting the region’s profile. Wizz Air last served Slovakia with its Rome FiumicinoBratislava route which it subsequently terminated in 2010.
