Low cost airline Wizz Air is introducing new flights from Doncaster to Alicante and Malaga as part of an expansion program at the Yorkshire Airport. The airline will allocate one Airbus A320 aircraft to the airport and will launch seven new routes to add to its existing Doncaster Sheffield network of ten routes.
The investment is creating almost 150 jobs and is a major boost to the beleaguered aviation industry which has suffered huge losses because of the covid-19 pandemic.
The new routes take off in October in time for the half term get away. The flights to Malaga will run twice weekly whilst Alicante will be served by 3 weekly flights. Fares start from £21.99 each way.
The managing director of Wizz Air UK, Owain Jones when speaking at the press conference to announce the expansion said, “The creation of our second base in the UK is a major milestone for Wizz Air UK, and testament to both our long term commitment to serving the UK market and the strength of the Wizz Air business model, as we continue to expand our footprint during this challenging time for the industry. We’re delighted to be introducing new low-fare connections to Doncaster Sheffield, to provide customers with opportunities to explore new cultures and cities, or return to their favourite holiday spots. The WIZZ team looks forward to welcoming customers old and new on-board our young and green fleet of Airbus aircraft very soon.”
