Wizz Air has announced plans to set up a second UK base.
The budget carrier will base an Airbus A320 aircraft at Doncaster Sheffield airport starting late-October, becoming Wizz’s 11th aircraft to be permanently based in the UK.
It will operate seven new routes, flying to Alicante, Malaga, Faro, Larnaca, Lublin (Poland), Kosice (Slovakia) and Suceana (Romania).
These new routes will operate from 22 October, complementing Wizz’s three existing Doncaster Sheffield routes.
The new base will create a sustained presence for Wizz in the north of England, with the airline predominantly based out of Luton airport.
