Polish low-cost airline Centralwings is operating three flights a week between Stansted and Warsaw.

Maciej Kwiatkowski, chief executive of Centralwings, said: "Stansted is an exceptionally attractive base for low-cost carriers and we are particularly excited to be operating the only current direct air link to Warsaw.

"We are already seeing huge demand from passengers intending to use the route for both business and leisure purposes.

"The overall expansion in our flight network is giving our passengers far greater convenience and choice in terms of both destinations served and chances to save money on the cost of tickets."

Nick Barton, business development and planning director of BAA Stansted, said: "I'm certain this new connection from London Stansted will be an important link for both the business and leisure markets."
