Low-cost airline Wizz Air, has signed a five-year agreement with Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Robin Hood Airport Doncaster-Sheffield, both in the UK, which will see the continuation of its established route network from both airports for the next five years.
The carrier currently operates to six Eastern European destinations from Liverpool and DoncasterSheffield Airports, including Gdansk, Katowice, Poznan, Warsaw and Wroclaw in Poland and more recently to Vilnius in Lithuania.
More than 2.5 million passengers have travelled on Wizz Air’s new Airbus A320 aircraft through both airports. Flights have proved particularly popular with Polish communities across the north of England.
Daniel de Carvalho, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air, said: “Today is a good day both for Wizz Air and for the airports at Doncaster-Sheffield and Liverpool. Wizz Air delivers low fares combined with excellent customer service and we partner with airports that work by the same philosophy of low costs and good service. Our partnership with Doncaster-Sheffield and Liverpool has stimulated low-fare air traffic in this region connecting the north of England with six exciting Central and Eastern European cities. With this renewed partnership, we expect our total passenger volume at these two airports to grow from 2.5 million to 5 million passengers.”
