Wizz Air UK has opened a new, and the second, base at Doncaster Sheffield Airport alongside London Luton. The airline will allocate one Airbus A320 aircraft to the Yorkshire airport and will launch seven new routes to add to its existing Doncaster Sheffield network of ten routes.
Wizz Air’s first flight from Doncaster Sheffield Airport took off over 14 years ago, and since then WIZZ has grown to be the airport’s largest carrier, with over 1 million passengers every year.
With the creation of a new base at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, Wizz Air will launch new connections to destinations including the Spanish cities of Alicante and Malaga, Larnaca in Cyprus, Faro in Portugal, Lublin in Poland, Kosice in Slovakia and Suceava in Romania.
With the allocation of this aircraft, Wizz Air now has 11 aircraft permanently based in the UK, and the addition of these new routes from Doncaster Sheffield means WIZZ has almost 1.8 million seats on sale on its 107 routes from the UK for the remainder of 2020.
