Doncaster Sheffield Airport has announced a new Wizz air flight to Budapest to commence services from October 29, 2018.

With the new route, Doncaster Sheffield will have a total of five flights per week and almost 100,000 seats to Hungary. Tickets for Wizz Air flights to Budapest, Hungary, are now on sale.

One of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest has several historical structures that would interest the tourists such as the Royal Palace, Hungarian State Opera, and Castle Museum. Known as the City of Baths, the city has over 120 thermal baths and spas around the Danube river and also hosts major music festivals such as Sziget Festival on an island located on the river itself.
The city is also rapidly emerging as a global business centre. It was previously named one the highest ranked cities in Central Eastern Europe for innovation and now regularly ranks within the top 30 European cities in the world.
