Stansted: Ryanair launches new service to Warsaw

RYANAIR has launched its 10th direct connection to Poland from Stansted with the departure of the first flight to the budget airline’s latest base at the new Warsaw Modlin Airport, which opened for business today.

Music composed by one of Warsaw’s most famous residents, Fryderyk Chopin, greeted passengers in Ryanair’s check-in area to mark the launch of the new daily flights to Modlin Airport, which is connected to Warsaw city centre by a direct 30 minute train journey.

Stansted’s commercial director, Jonathan Crick, said: “Half a million visitors arrived into Poland from the UK in 2011 which showcases the country’s growing popularity as both a business and leisure destination.

“Ryanair has already developed a wide range of very popular flight connections across Poland from Stansted, and today we are delighted to add Warsaw Modlin Airport to our route network as we wish Ryanair every success with this exciting new service.”

Ryanair’s Maria Macken added: “Ryanair is delighted to welcome passengers on board its new daily service from London Stansted to Warsaw Modlin. Ryanair now flies to 10 Polish airports from London Stansted giving passengers even more choice than ever.”
