LOW cost airline Wizz Air has announced a new five year flights deal with Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport.
The firm, the largest cheap fares operator Central and Eastern Europe, has today signed a new long-term agreement with the airport which will see the continuation of Wizz Air’s established Doncaster Sheffield route network for the next five years.
Wizz Air currently operates to six Eastern European destinations from Doncaster Sheffield Airport, including Gdansk, Katowice, Poznan, Warsaw and Wroclaw in Poland and more recently to Vilnius in Lithuania.
1.2 million passengers have travelled with Wizz Air through Doncaster Sheffield Airport since first choosing to operate from here in 2006.
Wizz Air’s low cost flights have continued to prove particularly popular with Polish communities across the North of England whilst the success of this year’s Euro 2012 football championships co-hosted by Poland also boosted thenumber of visitors from the UK to Poland.
Chris Harcombe, Aviation Development Manager for the airport commented, “We have worked closely with Wizz Air since they launched services in the UK market and have been delighted with their performance here at Doncaster Sheffield Airport over the past 6 years.
“Today’s announcement is recognition of the strength of that proposition and further reinforces the continued partnership between Wizz Air and Doncaster Sheffield Airport. We look forward to working with Wizz to grow the range of services available over the coming years.”
