The carrier will launch six new holiday routes for spring 2021, providing connections between their bases at Doncaster-Sheffield, Gatwick and London-Luton to sunny destinations in Turkey, Bulgaria, Spain and Greece.
On Wednesday (December 23, 2020), Wizz Air UK announced the addition of six new routes to popular holiday destinations for spring 2021. The carrier will launch four summer-only routes from Doncaster-Sheffield including twice-weekly flights to the Turkish holiday hotspot of Dalaman as well as the Spanish island of Mallorca starting in April. In May, Wizz will offer twice-weekly flights to Bourgas on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria and to the Greek island of Crete.
