Robin Hood Airport perfect for Poles as Wroclaw returns
Wednesday 17, March 2010
Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield served up another portion of Polish pie when its first passengers from Wroclaw flew in to the airport, following the return of the popular twice weekly route this month.
Wizz Air, the largest low fare - low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, reopened its service to the airport from the city following the launch of the airline’s 12th operating base in Wroclaw on 12th March 2010.
The first visitors to touch down were treated to delightful delicacies – courtesy of Doncaster’s most authentic Polish restaurant Kuchnia Polska.
Staff and airport police also tried out their foreign language skills, having learnt the basics of the Polish vocabulary and handed out Witamy (Welcome) booklets written in Polish with useful local information to help accommodate travellers.
Jodi Stow, marketing and communications manager at Robin Hood Airport, said: “We are thrilled to welcome back Wizz Air’s incredibly popular Wroclaw route. Wroclaw is a beautiful Polish city and a great place for short breaks. These flights will also provide a gateway for Polish visitors wishing to visit our fantastic region.
“It was a pleasure to see our first passengers from Poland, who were welcomed by our staff who had put a lot of effort into making their arrival as seamless as possible, enjoying traditional cuisine cooked up by Kuchnia Polska restaurant. We hope they have an enjoyable stay in the UK.”
Colin Joy, Tourism Manager from Doncaster Tourism, said: “We are delighted to welcome these new Polish visitors to Doncaster. The Polish community in Doncaster has a long history, and this new flight strengthens those links. It is a great opportunity to further boost the growing visitor economy and show off the history and beautiful countryside in and around Doncaster. Whether they are visiting friends and relatives in the region or here for a short break, they will be guaranteed a fantastic stay in Doncaster.”
Flights will operate every Monday and Friday starting from 12th March 2010 and are available from £14.99 one way inc. taxes and charged at www.wizzair.com
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
