time so we are extremely pleased to be able to offer our customers even more choice and thank Wizz Air for
recognising the Midlands as a new market opportunity"

Budapest each Tuesday and Saturday. Flights are available to book via from £15.49 each way

Councillor Fran Oborski MBE, said "With such a large Polish Community living in the Midlands, this new
Warsaw service will be welcomed by many who need greater connectivity to visit friends and family. Warsaw

the route will also be popular with Midlanders wanting to explore Poland’s fascinating capital city"

Tamara Mshvenieradze, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, added, "We are thrilled to be
celebrating our very first flights from Warsaw and Budapest to Birmingham. Birmingham is becoming
