Wizz Air launches new routes from Cardiff to Spain, Portugal and Greece from £27.99


WIZZ Air has launched flights from Cardiff Airport for the first time, with destinations including Lanzarote, Tenerife and Corfu.

It will be the fourth base for the airline, alongside London Luton, London Gatwick and Sheffield, the latter two being launched in October.

There will be nine new routes - year-round flights include Alicante, Faro, Larnaca and Tenerife.

They will also launch seasonal routes to Corfu, Heraklion and Majorca in the summer, and Lanzarote and Sharlm El Sheikh during the winter.

Prices start from £27.99 and flights can be booked now, although will start in March 2021.

Wizz Air now operates 123 routes from 11 airports.

Wizz Air Managing Director Owain Jones said: “This is an extremely exciting time for Wizz Air as we increase our footprint in the UK even further.

"With the launch of 47 new routes from the UK this year alone, we’re making sure that passengers can make up for lost time in creating amazing travel memories.|

The full list of flights routes and prices are:

Last month, the airline announced that British passengers could get discounted Covid tests and Covid-free travel certificates when travelling with them.

The Hungarian airline's “Fit to Fly” package, which includes a PCR swab test and certificate, will be available for £85.

The £85 cost is offered through a deal between the airline and partner, Confirm Testing, and is cheaper than the £110 cost without the Wizz discount.
