Gdansk becomes Bodø’s first year-round international destination


Wizz Air will launch direct flights between Avinor Bodø Airport and Gdansk with two weekly departures as of 22 May 2019. The new route will provide approximately 19,000 seats between Bodø and Gdansk every year.

‘We are looking forward to welcoming Wizz Air to Bodø. This route will demonstrate our potential to increase international traffic. By supporting this direct route, we will be in the best possible position to enable further growth and development to and from Bodø and Nordland,’ says Finn Ove Hofstad, Manager of Bodø Airport.

The route to Gdansk has taken high priority within Avinor for many years, and Nordland natives can now look forward to a direct route to one of Poland’s most beautiful cities. The route will potentially have a major impact on both business and tourism in the region.

‘This is an important route for both economic migrants to Nordland and tourism in both countries. We are seeing an increasing number of tourists visiting from Poland, which means that good travel connections are crucial for Norwegian industry and tourism,’ he says.


Gdansk is the sixth largest city in Poland and is a very popular destination for Norwegians.

‘Gdansk is a destination that is incredibly popular, offering great shopping, a charming old town and a rich history. It is also close to the neighbouring town of Sopot, a renowned seaside resort,’ he says.

The route will be operated by an Airbus A320 with 180 seats. This is the 10th route launched by the Hungarian airline direct to Gdansk from Norway.
