Wizz offers five green–list destinations to UK travellers

Wizz Air will resume flying from the UK to five destinations on the country’s green list from 17 May onwards.

Wizz Air UK managing director Owain Jones said the services will resume to Faro and Lisbon in Portugal, Tel Aviv in Israel, Iceland’s Reykjavik and Gibraltar once restrictions have been lifted.

The airline has been operating a small number of flights in the UK during the pandemic for essential travel only.

The decision to renew flights to the UK-government approved destinations comes as the airline kick starts flights to other destinations from the UK with connections to up to 80 set to start returning to service from May 17.

The airline has also introduced a new travel insurance package with Covid-19 cover in order to help drive bookings.

The airline is also offering passengers an exclusive discount on Covid-19 tests, which will need to be taken before their return to the UK, and certificates through its partnership with Randox Health.

Wizz Air UK managing director Owain Jones said: “The Wizz Air team welcomes the announcement from the UK government on the green list countries for the restart of international travel.

“At Wizz, we are prepared to ramp up operations quickly when restrictions ease, with the recent delivery of four brand new A321neo aircraft and the expansion of our UK network.

“In the past year alone, we have launched over 20 new routes to Europe and beyond, providing affordable airfares to exciting destinations.

“We are looking forward to welcoming passengers back on board our young, green aircraft, where they can rely on our stringent health and hygiene measures and excellent service as they head to their post lockdown getaway.”
