European cheap flights carrier Wizz Air will introduce flights to Tampere from Gdansk this summer.
The Hungarian airline, the largest low-cost operator in central and eastern Europe, will commence twice-weekly services to the southern Finnish city on June 13th.
Once flights take effect, Tampere, which is often referred to as the ‘Manchester of Finland’ owing to its industrial past, will become the 19th destination served by the Pomeranian region’s capital.
Tampere is Finland’s third-largest city and last year hosted the European Youth Olympic Festival between July 18th and 25th.
Elsewhere, Wizz Air will launch cheap flights to Venice Treviso from major western Ukrainian city Lviv on May 14th.
Services will operate on a twice-weekly basis using a brand new Airbus 320 aircraft.
Last year, the cheap flights carrier carried more than 7.8 million passengers from its 11 bases in Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Ukraine.
Its fleet currently consists of 29 Airbus A320 aircraft.
