WIN! Free flights to Poland with Wizz Air

hungarian airline Wizz Air offers up to 18 flights a week to Poland from Robin Hood Airport - and we have two free tickets to be won!

We have teamed up with Wizz Air to offer one lucky reader the chance to fly to a choice of five Polish cities.

It was in September 2006 that the recently-opened Robin Hood Airport launched its first Wizz Air flight to Poland.

Its destination was the city of Katowice.

The flight was introduced in response to the increasing number of Polish migrants moving into the area.

Five years later demand has increased so much that there are now 18 flights to Poland every week in the summer and 15 in the winter.

The number of Polish destinations has increased as well, with flights now available to Gdansk, Warsaw, Poznan and Wroclaw, as well as Katowice.

Robin Hood aviation development manager Chris Harcombe said: “There are two to four flights per week to each destination.”

“We have around 250,000 passengers a year on our flights to Poland.”

“They are used not just by migrant workers, but also by British business people who have connections in Poland, and also for leisure.”

“People are going on weekend city breaks to cities like Warsaw because they are good value for money.”

Mr Harcombe said Katowice was chosen as the first destination because it was an alternative gateway to Krakow which was where a lot of the first migrant workers came from.

All the Robin Hood Polish flights are operated by Hungarian airline Wizz Air.

Since joining the European Union in 2004, Poland has seen its tourism numbers increase significantly as holidaymakers head to popular cities including Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, and Wroclaw on the River Oder.

The latter is currently in the running for the title of European Capital of Culture 2016 and it’s easy to see why with its cobbled streets, historical market square, opera, museums, 14th century town hall and botanical gardens.

Football will attract thousands of people to the country next year as Poland and Ukraine host the 2012 UEFA European Football Championships.

Our prize allows you to choose from Warsaw, Poznan, Gdansk, Katowice or Wroclaw - before 30th April 2012.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question.
