Comments from Wizz Air UK
Managing Director of W9 Mr. Owain Jones said, “Customers old and new have given us a very clear message – they love the choice of new destinations to which they can travel by Wizz Air UK from our new base at Doncaster Sheffield.”
“So less than three weeks after we announced the base, we’re delighted to celebrate the addition of a second Airbus A320 and six new routes, bringing more of everything that our customers love about WIZZ – more local jobs, more much-needed connections for the region, more ultra-low fares to favorite holiday destinations and European cities and more reason than ever before for our customers to keep saying Yes! to flying from their local airport, with our enhanced protective hygiene measures on-board providing the re-assurance to fly on Europe’s greenest fleet while enjoying WIZZ’s great on-board service.”
Doncaster Airport Generates £60 Million for the Sheffield City Region
Director of Aviation Development at DSA Mr. Chris Harcombe said, “We are delighted that Wizz Air has chosen to base a second aircraft permanently at Doncaster Sheffield Airport so soon after its recent announcement to open a full-based operation with us for Wizz Air UK.”
“The swift addition of a second aircraft from Europe’s greenest airline shows the confidence of Wizz Air that we can deliver a shared intention to provide affordable travel through ultra-low fares to people in the Northeast of the Pennines, creating new routes to popular leisure destinations for our customers across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.”
“The news comes as the aviation industry faces unprecedented challenges. Doncaster Sheffield Airport contributes over £60 million to the Sheffield City Region, supporting thousands of jobs and it is vital that the UK Government acknowledges and supports airlines and airports so that they can continue to contribute to local economies providing investment and jobs.”
