Wizz Air adds Doncaster Sheffield-Budapest route

Wizz Air is to start a new three-weekly route from Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) to Budapest Airport from 29 October adding to another Hungarian service announced from DSA a few weeks ago to Debrecen.

This new route to Budapest will bring a total of five flights per week and almost 100,000 seats to Hungary, making DSA the best-connected airport to this region from Yorkshire and the North of England. The Debrecen route starts in December.

DSA aviation development director, Chris Harcombe said: “Wizz Air is an important strategic partner of DSA. Since opening operations in 2006 we have worked together in partnership to develop a growing range of routes with over 3 million passengers carried.”

DSA’s growing range of destinations already extends to 55 destinations and with new routes being released regularly, the airport is proving to be a convenient choice for passengers travelling from Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and beyond.

Wizz Air chief corporate officer, Owain Jones said: “We are delighted to be the first airline to connect Doncaster Sheffield with Budapest, giving our UK customers in the north of England the opportunity to experience the stunning architecture, world famous wines and superb gastronomy on offer in one of Europe’s most beautiful and vibrant capital cities.”
