Passengers flying from London Luton can look forward to year-round flights to Tallin, Hurghada and Prague. For travellers eager for some winter sun, Wizz Air is launching twice weekly flights to Sharm El Sheikh where passengers can enjoy a relaxing break on its famed sandy beaches.

Building on its expansion at Gatwick Airport earlier this year, Wizz Air will launch a further five routes from its base. This includes four flights a week to the Moroccan coastal city of Agadir, a new station for Wizz Air.

Known for its golf courses and wide crescent beaches, there are plenty of activities to interest any type of traveller. In addition to Agadir, passengers can look forward to year-round routes to Hurghada and Verona. Seasonal flights will also operate to Sharm El Sheik or for those looking to ski in the Alps, there will be weekly flights to Grenoble over winter.

Since its first flight to the UK in May 2004, and the subsequent opening of its first base in 2017, Wizz Air has been expanding and diversifying its network to fly passengers to favourite holiday destinations as well as those more off the beaten track.

Now operating more than 60 routes from across the UK, the airline’s continued investment in the UK demonstrates its long-term commitment to serving the market.

For ultimate peace of mind, passengers can book tickets with the airline’s travel insurance package which includes Covid-19 cover** and WIZZ Flex.

With WIZZ Flex, passengers can cancel their flight up to three hours before departure without any fee and receive 100 per cent of the fare immediately reimbursed in airline credit.

Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said: “We are very excited to announce the addition of nine new routes from our bases at London Luton Airport and Gatwick Airport.

“Despite the challenges the UK aviation industry has faced this summer season, we remain committed to the market and are pleased to be able to offer passengers the chance to discover even more fascinating destinations such as Tallin and Hurghada, and revisit holiday hotspots like Sharm El Sheikh.

“We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard our young, efficient and sustainable aircraft.”
