Wizz Air boosting schedules at Doncaster Sheffield Airport

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) and Wizz Air have strengthened plans for future growth with the signing of a new deal.

Wizz Air already plans to offer more than 1.5 million seats at DSA next summer.

The new agreement comes as restrictions on international travel continue to relax with increased demand for flights to popular leisure destinations such as Spain, Turkey and Portugal.

Marion Geoffroy, Wizz Air UK Managing Director, said: "We continue to build on our successful relationship with DSA which began in 2006. Our intention is to further enhance our operations at DSA by growing a based operation of scale here in the coming years."

"With the addition of a number of A321 neo aircraft to the fleet in summer 2022, we are focused on accelerating growth over the coming years."

As part of the new agreement, a number of additional new routes are on sale for summer 2022 to Spain, the Canary Islands, Turkey, Portugal, Bulgaria and Crete. 

It follows new flights to winter destinations such as Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Tenerife, which will launch just in time for October half term.

Wizz Air's 1.5 million seats on sale for next summer represents an increase of 1 million new seats compared to summer 2019.

 Kate Stow, Director of Aviation Development and Corporate Affairs, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: "This new deal with Wizz Air is wonderful news for our customers across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and North Nottinghamshire, offering them a greater choice of ultra-low-cost flights."
