Wizz Air UK, the European airline group’s UK-registered subsidiary, has announced the addition of six new low-fare holiday routes to its network.
Launching in Spring 2021, the new routes will provide connections between the airline’s Doncaster Sheffield, Gatwick and London Luton bases and holiday hotspots in Turkey, Bulgaria, Spain and Greece. This announcement follows a recent expansion for the airline, with Wizz Air UK opening new bases at Gatwick and Doncaster Sheffield Airport in October and at Cardiff Airport earlier in December. The airline now offers tickets on 144 routes from 12 UK airports.
Owain Jones, Wizz Air UK managing director, said: ‘Although few people are able to travel at the moment, we’re looking ahead to brighter times, with today’s announcement further proof of our commitment to providing the UK with affordable, direct flights to exciting destinations. With the launch of 58 new Wizz Air UK routes this year alone, we continue to bring ever-better connectivity to the UK. In summer 2020, our customers loved our many brand-new holiday routes and we’re now giving them an even greater choice of favourite sunny holiday spots for summer 2021. If you’re dreaming of a trip abroad, book ahead now to take advantage of WIZZ’s ultra-low fares and we recommend adding WIZZ Flex to all bookings for ultimate peace of mind should plans change. We look forward to welcoming everyone back on-board to experience the great service of Europe’s greenest airline group.’
The new holiday routes from Wizz Air include four summer-only routes from Doncaster Sheffield. In April, the airline will commence twice-weekly flights to the Turkish holiday destination of Dalaman and the Spanish island of Mallorca, and in May it will launch twice-weekly flights to Bourgas on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast and to the Greek island of Crete. With the addition of these new destinations, Wizz Air will operate a total of 25 routes from Doncaster Sheffield.
In London, Wizz Air will launch a year-round service from Gatwick to Malaga on Spain’s Costa del Sol, with flights operating from the south London hub to the port city four times a week from April 2. On the same day, Wizz Air will launch flights from London Luton to Dalaman, operating twice a week throughout the summer season. The inaugural flight from Luton to Dalaman will be the first flight to Turkey operated by WIZZ since 2016.
Tickets are available now on wizzair.com or on the WIZZ mobile app, with fares starting from GBP27.99 one-way price, including taxes, administration and other non-optional charges. One carry-on bag (max: 40x30x20cm) is included. Trolley bag and each piece of checked-in baggage is subject to additional fees, the airline said.
