Wizz Air to open Doncaster Sheffield base

From now on 7 new routes are available from Wizz Air's new UK base Doncaster Sheffield. Explore Malaga, discover Alicante, plan with Faro, see Kosice, tick off Larnaca, tour in Lublin and make memories Suceava!


The budget carrier Wizz Air, has confirmed plans to open a new base at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the second base for Wizz Air UK, alongside London Luton. The airline will allocate one Airbus A320 aircraft to the Yorkshire airport and will launch seven new routes to add to its existing Doncaster Sheffield network of ten routes.

Wizz Air’s first flight from Doncaster Sheffield Airport took off over 14 years ago, and since then WIZZ has grown to be the airport’s largest carrier, with over 1 million passengers every year flying on the airline’s ultra-low central and eastern European routes. With the creation of a new base at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, Wizz Air will launch new connections to destinations including the Spanish cities of Alicante and Malaga, Larnaca in Cyprus, Faro in Portugal, Lublin in Poland, Kosice in Slovakia and Suceava in Romania. 

With the creation of a new Wizz Air UK base at Doncaster Sheffield, Wizz Air will not only increase the annual capacity of Doncaster Sheffield Airport by 150,000 seats, providing local passengers with even more affordable and exciting travel opportunities.

With the allocation of this aircraft, Wizz Air now has 11 aircraft permanently based in the UK, and the addition of these new routes from Doncaster Sheffield means WIZZ has almost 1.8 million seats on sale on its 107 routes from the UK for the remainder of 2020. The creation of this new base also follows on from Wizz Air’s recent announcements of new bases in Bacău, Dortmund, Lviv, Larnaca, Milan-Malpensa, Tirana, Saint Petersburg and the launch of over 200 new routes across the network since April 2020.

Chris Harcombe, Director of Aviation Development at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “We are delighted to bring more ultra-low fares to DSA, to these popular destinations loved by our customers and served by an airline who pride themselves on providing affordable travel, with an excellent reputation. It is a shared intention to bring further aircraft as part of this agreement within a matter of months.

“There is no doubt that the aviation sector faces its greatest challenge in modern day history at this time. It is essential that the UK Government acknowledges and supports airlines and airports that bring much needed investment into the UK economy. Doncaster Sheffield Airport contributes over £60 million to the Sheffield City Region and offers job security for thousands of people.”

Robert Hough, Chairman of Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “Our partnership with Wizz Air is incredibly special to our business. Both Wizz Air and Doncaster Sheffield Airport began their journeys’ in the early 2000s as challenger brands with a shared desire to provide opportunity for the people of our respective markets through obtainable travel. 

“Fast forward 15 years and Wizz Air is one of Europe’s most successful and well-established airlines and Doncaster Sheffield Airport as one of the UKs fastest growing airports – it’s a true partnership that has gone from strength to strength.”The only way is DSA thanks to Wizz Air’s second UK base taking up residency at Doncaster Sheffield Airport and we look forward to The GC strutting over our runway very soon!
