Wizz Air has announced plans to launch nine new routes from London’s Luton and Gatwick airports from October.

The low-cost carrier is launching year-round three-times-weekly flights from Luton to Tallin in Estonia from November 1, and daily flights to Prague from October 30.

It will also operate seasonal twice-weekly winter services to Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt from November 1 and October 31 respectively.

Meanwhile the airline will launch a further five routes from its Gatwick base. From October 30, the carrier will launch four-times-weekly flights to the Moroccan coastal city of Agadir and daily flights to Marrakesh. There will also be year-round three-times-weekly flights to Verona in Italy from December 13.

Seasonal routes from Gatwick will include twice-weekly flights to Sharm El Sheikh from November 1 and a once-weekly flight to Grenoble from December 17.

One-way fares for the new routes vary from £21 to £68.

Marion Geoffroy, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said:

“We are very excited to announce the addition of nine new routes from our bases at London Luton Airport and Gatwick Airport. Despite the challenges the UK aviation industry has faced this summer season, we remain committed to the market and are pleased to be able to offer passengers the chance to discover even more fascinating destinations such as Tallin and Hurghada, and revisit holiday hotspots like Sharm El Sheikh. We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard our young, efficient and sustainable aircraft.”

Wizz Air first launched flights to the UK in 2004 and opened its first base in 2017. It now operates over 60 routes from across the UK.

Earlier this year the airline announced plans to expand at Luton following the acquisition of two daily slot pairs from Vueling.
