Small Planet Airlines welcomes its 10 millionth passenger
The early morning of the 25th of January was special for the leisure charter carrier Small Planet Airlines – it welcomed its 10 millionth passenger. The lucky traveller was boarding the flight P7 8811 from Katowice to Fuerteventura. 

Apart from a surprise, Dariusz Kozub from Katowice has been presented with plane tickets to any chosen Small Planet Airlines destination from Katowice and a VIP flight experience, including a fast-track, business lounge, shopping vouchers, and champagne. 

It is the second milestone Small Planet Airlines celebrated this month: only a week earlier it welcomed its 1 millionth passenger in Germany, where the company plans its biggest growth this year, basing 10 aircraft in German airports. 

“Small Planet Airlines started its operations in 2008 with only 2 old Boeings in its fleet. Today we carry 8 times more passengers per year with a fleet that is 10 times as big. I am glad that we welcomed our 10 millionth passenger in Poland – Small Planet Airlines has been awarded as the Best Charter Airline in Poland for two years in a row, and we are grateful to all the passengers and partners for choosing us and showing trust. We will keep our commitment to provide the best service. Hopefully, by 2025 there will be 10 million happy passengers per year flying with Small Planet Airlines” – says the CEO of Small Planet Airlines Poland Jaroslaw Jeschke. 

According to Artur Tomasik, the Chairman of the Board of Górnośląskiego Towarzystwa Lotnicze SA – the company that manages the Katowice Airport, a consistent cooperation with Small Planet Airlines helped them to become leaders among the Polish regional airports. 

“We are glad our cooperation with Small Planet Airlines developed in a fast and dynamic way: last year the airline became the biggest charter carrier in Katowice airport. Having ambitions to become the largest national airport in the charter-flights segment, we hope this cooperation will continue successfully, with our modern infrastructure and operational flexibility helping Small Planet Airlines to expand its activity even further”, tells Mr. Tomasik. 

“It is an early morning and this event is still a huge surprise for me and my family. We would like to thank both Small Planet Airlines and Katowice Airport, and wish them to carry many more millions of passengers”, says Dariusz Kozub, jubilee passenger of Small Planet Airlines.  

Small Planet Airlines flew 2,7 million passengers in 2017. Currently company’s fleet consists of 22 Airbus aircraft – 18 A320s and 4 A321s. Six additional Airbus aircraft will join the leisure charter carrier in 2018. 

This year holidaymakers will also enjoy a growing list of holiday destinations: Small Planet Airlines’ colourful aircraft will take-off from 15 bases in Europe and fly 240 different routes.
