Wizz Air launches new Canary Islands flights despite FCO warning against travel

Wizz Air has announced the launch of six new routes from the UK to the Canary Islands, Portugal and the Netherlands, despite the FCO currently advising Brits against travel to some of the destinations.

The budget carrier will be offering new flights from Doncaster Sheffield to Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Tenerife, Lisbon and Eindhoven.

At the time of writing, the FCO advises Brits against all but essential travel to both the Canary Islands and the Netherlands following rises in numbers of coronavirus cases in the destinations.

The new flights are set to take off from the 22nd October 2020, and there are cheap fares to be had including fares from £17.99 to Eindhoven, £21.99 to Lisbon, and £26.99 to the Canary Islands.

Holidaymakers can find out more on the Wizz Air website.

Wizz Air announced plans to open the new Doncaster Sheffield base earlier this year, with seven routes kicking off in October; Alicante and Malaga in Spain, Larnaca in Cyprus, Faro in Portugal, Lublin in Poland, Kosice in Slovakia and Suceava in Romania.

With the addition of the six new routes, the airline is also introducing a second Airbus A320 aircraft at the base.

Doncaster Sheffield isn’t the only new UK base for the airline; the company has also announced plans for a new London Gatwick base.

This makes a total of three UK bases for the budget carrier, which also operates from London Luton. Currently, Wizz Air offers flights from 11 UK airports.

If you choose to book a flight but the FCO travel advice has not changed when your travel date arrives, you may not be able to get a refund if the flight itself is not cancelled.

Travellers who choose to travel despite the advice need to be aware that there are extra risks involved – including your travel insurance being invalidated.

  • During the coronavirus pandemic, countries may be subject to travel restrictions. Always check the latest FCO advice for your chosen destination before planning, booking, or going on a trip.
