Bosses say international travel is back on the cards for this summer, with more than one million low cost seats available to a number of destinations as flights return from May 18.

Since launching DSA as its new base last year, Wizz Air have continued to announce ultra-low-fare flights to some of the most beautiful destinations in Europe.

This summer, customers will be able to enjoy affordable flights to their most popular destinations with a number of customers already booking flights with confidence to their favourite European holiday spots.

Wizz Air flights are returning to Doncaster.

Thanks to their Wizz Flex offer, customers are able to book now, and change flights later if needed. Wizz Air have also introduced discounted rapid COVID-19 tests for passengers, partnering with Randox.

Kate Stow, Director of Aviation Development and Corporate Affairs at Doncaster Sheffield Airport said: “The government’s road map begins to provide much needed certainty to those of us that are looking forward to summer holidays which we are hopeful will become a real possibility from May 17 onwards. Wizz Air are poised for return and have introduced flexible terms enabling customers to plan ahead and make bookings.

“We recently asked our passengers what their hopes were for a holiday in 2021, and an astounding 89% said that they wanted to go on a beach holiday as opposed to a city break.

"A further 44% said that they hoped to holiday in Spain this summer, and with flights to places like Palma de Majorca as low as £27.99, a trip to the beautiful Balearics is an affordable option for many.”

Owain Jones, Managing Director, Wizz Air UK said: “We’re looking ahead to sunnier skies this summer and welcoming passengers back on board our flights from Doncaster Sheffield Airport. We know our customers are keen to get away once restrictions lift, as we saw last summer with our holiday routes.

"Passengers can be confident booking with us, thanks to our Wizz Flex offer and new travel insurance package, which includes COVID-19 cover. With our enhanced health and safety measures, we’re making sure that as soon as travel is possible again WIZZ is ready to take passengers to their dream destination for a well-earned getaway.”
