This is great news for the UK-Poland traveller and for the avition market in these areas. My mother recently purchased a return ticket from London Stansted-Wroclaw in western Poland for something like £35 including taxes! The service is due to start in March I believe. There are some beautiful Polish cities to go and visit, especially Krakow and Warsaw, as mentioned in the article, ideal city beaks.

I visited Krakow with Wizzair from Luton (to Katowice, roughly an hour away) in the summer. Beautiful city and a great service. There does seem to be some overcapacity in the Polish market recently though, with Wizz, SkyEurope, Polonia (no longer). I'm sure capacity will settle down. To be honest I can't see long run viability of, for example, LPL-KTW to be honest. It seems if a short-haul European LCC route can't justify daily operation then it doesn't last long. My 2 cents.

Lufthansa MUC-KRK service goes from twice to three times daily by March 2005.
Austrian goes from daily to twice daily. A new service by Alitailia, MXP-KRK twice daily with ERJ-145 is to be launched. BA LGW-KRK goes to daily served by 734 for the summer season.
We are missing the SkyTeam leader in Krakow tough. An AF service to CDG would be nice.
On the low-cost side of the market EasyJet goes twice daily on the DTM-KRK route, keeps daily SXF-KRK and LTN-KRK flights. SkyEurope is to base a 2nd 735 in KRK to increase frequencies and start a couple of new destinations: MAN, NCE and BCN if memory serves.
