Wizz Air to resume flights from Luton airport to Spain, Portugal

Wizz Air, a Hungarian low-cost airline, has announced it will begin resuming flights from London Luton on May 1, the company said.

The flights will service Budapest, Burgas, Lisbon, Sofia, Tenerife, Tel Aviv and Varna. The airline had planned to resume flights to Romania but authorities in Bucharest have extended their lockdown restrictions.

The airline is promising low fares to stimulate demand, however, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office still advises against all foreign non-essential travel.

The airline said anyone who has had a flight cancelled will receive 120 per cent of the price of the flight in the form of vouchers than can be used over the next two years.

The airline plans to have 10% of its services running during May and expects that figure will increase to 70% by August.
