New flights to holiday hotspots from Doncaster Sheffield Airport

Published on : Monday, December 7, 2020

Flights to popular holiday hotspots such as Gran Canaria and Tenerife recently started taking off from Doncaster Sheffield Airport once again. Airline operators TUI and Wizz Air offered discounts on test and release kits as an early Christmas present for passengers as parts of the U.K. come out of lockdown.


TUI has added a number of new flights to existing travel corridor destinations such as Canary Islands; Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria to assuage passengers’ pent up demand. Wizz Air has also resumed flights to popular Eastern European destinations such as Riga, Gdansk and Vilnius so that friends and family may be reunited at home for Christmas. 


The carrier will also add Cyprus to its list of holiday destinations later this month. Chris Harcombe, Aviation Development Director, Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said in a statement that the year has been extremely challenging for airlines, airports and the aviation industry as a whole as it saw a reduction of over 80% in passenger traffic. 


He mentioned that TUI and Wizz have responded to the easing of lockdown and the introduction of test and release by adding extra flights to popular destinations as well as discounts for testing kits, in a move to get passengers back in the air. He also shared that the companies have seen a significant spike in bookings following the announcement with many eager to escape to get some much-needed sunshine.
