Wizz Air confirms Cardiff launch date

Wizz Air UK is to start flying from a new base at Cardiff airport on July 30.

The new base will be operating routes to Alicante, Corfu, Faro, Heraklion, Palma, Larnaca and Tenerife, with flights to Lanzarote planned to start in October and Sharm el-Sheikh in November.

The introduction of flights with fares starting at £17.99 one-way, follows the Welsh government announcing that fully vaccinated travellers returning to Wales from amber list countries will not have to quarantine from July 19.

Wizz Air UK managing director Owain Jones said: “The Wizz Air team welcomes the announcement from the Welsh government that it will scrap quarantine for fully vaccinated travellers returning to Wales from amber list countries.

“We have been busy planning the start of Wizz Air UK’s new base at Cardiff Airport and are excited to be launching flights to seven sunshine destinations just in time for the summer holiday season.

“We have been recruiting new colleagues to join our Wizz Air UK Cardiff team, and our crews are looking forward to welcoming customers on board Wales’ new hometown airline.

“Passengers can rely on our flexible booking policies, our stringent health and hygiene measures and excellent on board service to ‘fly local’ to their favourite getaways.”
