Budget airline Wizz Air has announced plans to launch two new routes from Glasgow to Poland later this year.

Twice-weekly flights between the Scottish city and Katowice and Poznan will start in late October.

The move means that flights will be available from Glasgow to a total of seven Polish airports.

In March 2013, Wizz Air launched services from Glasgow to Gdansk and Warsaw after switching operations from Prestwick.

Ryanair also recently announced that it would start winter routes from Glasgow to Bydgoszcz, Warsaw Modlin and Wroclaw.

Francois Bourienne, Glasgow Airport's commercial director, said: "Wizz Air has been a successful addition to our airline roster, providing connectivity to key Polish destinations and growing its passenger traffic every month since its arrival here in March 2013.

"The decision by Wizz Air to launch new services to Katowice and Poznan later this year is great news for travellers in both countries, with Katowice in particular set to be popular with Scots travelling to nearby sites of cultural and historical significance such as Krakow and Auschwitz.

"Today's announcement by Wizz means Glasgow Airport will soon be serving more Polish cities than any other Scottish airport."
