Wizz Air Starts Flights from St. Petersburg to London

On October 1, 2019, Wizz Air, the European low-cost airline, will launch scheduled service between the Russian city of St. Petersburg and London, the capital of the United Kingdom. The daily flights from Pulkovo Airport to London Luton Airport will be operated by a subsidiary airline Wizz Air UK.

Tickets for St. Petersburg — London Luton flights can be booked on the website of Pulkovo Airport in the Trip Planner section, as well as on wizzair.com at a price from 29.99 euros / 25.99 pounds sterling (one way, including all taxes).

In the summer season of 2019, two carriers provide service from Pulkovo Airport to the capital of the United Kingdom: British Airways (Heathrow) and Rossiya Airlines (Gatwick).

For the first six months of 2019, Wizz Air served over 38.6 thousand passengers at Pulkovo Airport, which is 27.7% more than in the same period of 2018. Since August 2017, the airline operates direct scheduled flights between St. Petersburg and Budapest (Hungary).

“The launching of new flights to London is a significant milestone for our airline. After Budapest, this is the second Wizz Air’s route from St. Petersburg. We remain strongly committed to expanding our network, creating new jobs and business development. Our St. Petersburg — London route will stimulate tourism and business relations between the two countries. We are grateful to the Hungarian and Russian government authorities for their cooperation and support provided during the route launch and are looking forward to welcoming many passengers on board,” said Tamara Vallois, Head of Marketing and Communications of Wizz Air.
