New Route: Bratislava – St. Petersburg (Pulkovo)

Low-cost carrier Wizzair announces new scheduled route between St. Petersburg and Bratislava. The operation will commence on 1st June 2020 with 4 weekly frequencies.

Wizzair will launch 4 new connections from St. Petersburg Pulkovo Airport, namely to Bucharest, Sofia, Vilnius and Bratislava, the carrier announced at a press conference held on January 20th in St. Petersburg.

The Bratislava-St.Petersburg route will be operated with 4 weekly frequencies (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday). This new service is a very welcome news for Slovak travellers as St. Petersburg belongs to the most admired cities in Russia and the destination occupied one of top rankings on Slovak travellers´ wish list of unserved direct routes for several years.

Bratislava currently has one route to Russia, namely to Moscow Vnukovo (operated since 2015 by Pobeda Airlines). The route just recently received a frequency increase, growing from initial 3 to current 7 weekly rotations.

St. Petersburg will become Wizzair´s 7th destination operated from Bratislava, joining the network of Wizzair´s routes to Sofia, Skopje, Kiev-Zhuliany, Lviv, Odesa and London-Luton.
