Wizz Air has reduced its scheduled service from Doncaster Sheffeld Airport, citing ‘operational challenges’.

The low-cost carrier will operate fewer flights next month and then again from July onwards.

A spokesperson for the airline said: “It is with regret that we have had to take the difficult decision to reduce our schedule from Doncaster Sheffield Airport in May and from July 2022 onwards, owing to operational challenges.

“Passengers with bookings affected by this change will be informed via e-mail and can opt for either a 120% cent refund of the original fare in airline credit, or a 100% cash refund.

“Wizz Air remains committed to long-term growth at Doncaster Sheffield Airport and sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused.”

Wizz Air has also announced it has acquired an additional two daily slot pairs from Vueling at Luton Airport. 

The deal means Wizz Air will increase frequencies on six existing routes from the airport – to Bacau, Craiova, Iasi, Sibiu and Timisoara in Romania, as well as to Wroclaw in Poland from 11 May 2022.
