“We started SUMMER 2019 season with a great result that proves the continuous growth of passenger traffic at Kraków Airport,” said Radosław Wołoszek,CEO at Kraków Airport.
“Our national carrier PLL LOT has introduced two destinations that seem to be very popular among the passengers, namely Bucharest and Olsztyn-Mazury. Since April, our base carrier Ryanair has started operating directly from Kraków to Bordeaux, Berlin Tegel, Catania, Hamburg, Copenhagen, Szczecin, Bari, Rimini, Thessaloniki and Zadar. In April we welcomed the first Wizz Air plane that has started operating to London-Luton since 4th April. It also flies to Kiev since last month. In 2019 Wizz Air will offer 18 #FLYKRK connections. The official opening of the Wizz Air base at Kraków Airport will take place on 8th May. Please, join us in celebrating at Kraków Airport,” added Włoszek.
Kraków Airport's Aviation Education Centre has hosted the 1st Airport Professional Fair, the first initiative of this type among Polish airports. Professional Fair organised by the only Polish education centre of this type was an opportunity to present airport professions to the students from the Małopolska region. At the fair, the students could learn about the professions available at an airport, the competences of airport staff and where and how they should train for a particular job. The participants also had a great opportunity to talk directly to the representatives of particular units that constantly look for employees, also among the students and graduates of Małopolska schools and universities, e.g. Border Guards in Kraków-Balice or Customs Department of Kraków-Balice Airport.
