The carrier is set to operate 25 services over the summer period, including destinations in Spain and the Greek islands
British low-cost carrier Wizz Air UK has restarted flights from Doncaster Sheffield Airport, following the easing of international travel restrictions.
Those living in the surrounding counties, such as Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire are able to utilise the airline’s international destinations currently available, including Faro, Crete and Fuerteventura.
Owain Jones, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said: “We are delighted to be restarting operations from our Doncaster Sheffield base, bringing back connections to the region, and offering our customers great value travel options for their post lockdown getaway. With 25 routes on offer from Doncaster Sheffield, including seven Spanish sunshine destinations, we are ensuring customers in Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire can fly from their local airport to popular holiday hotspots this summer.”
“It’s been a tough 12-months for the aviation industry and, although we’ve remained operational throughout the pandemic providing vital freight service, leisure travel is the beating heart of the UK’s favourite airport and we can’t wait to welcome back customers and get them up in the air for summer,” added Chris Harcombe, director of aviation development at Doncaster/Sheffield Airport.
“We’ve been working closely with our operators to ensure the safe return of air travel and with a number of flexible products available including a testing facility on-site, we’re pleased that customers can book their holiday with confidence. We’re looking forward to a positive recovery and a bright year ahead.”
Passengers are able to use Wizz’s travel planning map that allows routes and relevant regulations to be checked prior to departure.
