Wizz Air serves a number of popular European cities and holiday destinations with low cost fares.

“Wizz is a valued partner of Doncaster Sheffield Airport and we are proud to be one of their UK bases. We celebrated 4 million passengers last year and look forward to welcoming many more now that operations have restarted.”
