The first flight from Aberdeen to Warsaw took off recently, creating a new air link between the Granite City and Warsaw, one of eastern Europe's major capitals. Operated by Wizz Air, the new twice weekly, year-round service is a boost for bosses at Aberdeen International Airport (AIA) at a time of falling passenger numbers. AIA route development manager Lynn Harwood said: "Wizz Air is an ambitious and rapidly growing airline and the addition of Warsaw is fantastic news for the airport and the city.

"We are continually working to expand our route network and not only will Wizz Air's new routes strengthen our connectivity with Europe's major cities, it has huge potential to generate significant in-bound tourism for Aberdeen."

AIA managing director Carol Benzie recently attended the Routes Europe 2016 event in Krakow and used a survey of extra routes people would like Aberdeen to obtain. Ms Benzie said: "The results of this data collection has indicated that the top five most requested routes which are currently either not served or under-served from our region include Barcelona, Vilnius, Alicante, Malaga and Faro."
