Wizzair yesterday confirmed at a press conference in Gdansk it will discontinue it’s three remaining routes from Poland to Cork, to reflect weakening demand on routes formerly used by immigrant workers, after immigration between Poland and Ireland is now down by 40% over its peak in 2007. Passengers booked on the routes will be refunded.

The carrier launched services to Cork in 2006 and will cease flights from Gdansk (7th April), Poznan (8th April) and Katowice (18th May) after previously ceasing routes to Warsaw and Wroclaw in Poland and Vilnius in Lithuania on 13th January.

Wizzair Corporate Communications Manager Daniel de Carvalho said  “The drop in immigration between Poland and Ireland and our subsequent drop of the Polish Cork routes has freed capacity to serve destinations that are more in line with the current market demand.”
