Earlier this year, the Irish budget airline announced seven new routes out of Belfast: Alicante, Berlin, Kraków, Lanzarote, Malaga, Milan and Tenerife, according to a news release. This year has also seen new flights from Newcastle to Lanzarote, Tenerife, Alicante and Dublin.

To celebrate the new routes to Poland, the airline has been releasing seats for sale for £19.99, which can be booked until 4 May for trips in November and December.

David Laws, the chief executive of Newcastle International Airport, said they are pleased to see more routes to Poland as it is “a vibrant country with a host of attractions on offer”.

Gdańsk is a northern port city on the Baltic coast, which features cobbled streets, museums, amber stores and a lot of history. Wrocław , the largest city in western Poland, has taken in Bohemian, Austrian and Prussian influences as borders changes over the centuries. In 2016, the city will be the European Capital of Culture and the World Book Capital. Warsaw, which suffered much destruction in WWII, boasts excellent museums, and a great restaurant and entertainment scene.
