FOOTBALL fans heading out to next summer’s European Championships are being urged to score early for flights from Robin Hood Airport.

Seats expected to be netted quickly by supporters flying out to Poland and the Ukraine after England sealed their qualification earlier this month.

Eastern European low cost airline Wizz Air provides direct flights from the Doncaster terminal to the Polish host cities of Gdansk, Poznan, Warsaw and Wroclaw.

It means fans can easily explore the cities during the tournament as well as watching the football.

Steve Gill, Robin Hood’s airport director said: “It’s great that the eyes of the world will be on Poland next year and people will get a glimpse of these fascinating cities thanks to Wizz Air.

“We have offered flights to Poland since 2006 and they have always proved extremely popular.

“Next summer we expect demand to be even greater as football fans jet off to join their heroes in Poland and the Ukraine.

“With demand for flights expected to rocket, I would like to urge fans interested in attending the tournament next year to book early to avoid disappointment.”

Euro 2012 kicks off on June 8 and ends with the showpiece final held in Ukrainian capital Kiev on July 1.

Supporters will find out where England and the other nations will play when the draw for the tournament’s group stages is made on December 2 in Kiev.

Fans who miss out on tickets can still enjoy the carnival atmosphere in ‘fan parks’ across both countries.
