Wizz Air has announced plans to launch seasonal four-times-weekly flights from Gatwick to Lyon.

The route will operate on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from January 10, 2023, with one-way fares starting from £21.99.

This follows the recent announcement of three new route launches from Gatwick airport to Marrakesh and Agadir in Morocco, and Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.

Wizz Air adds seven routes from Luton and Gatwick airports

Wizz Air now operates over 25 routes from the airport.

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

“We are excited to announce the addition of yet another exciting route from Gatwick Airport. Lyon is known for its UNESCO-listed Old Town, impressive architecture and thriving food scene – not to mention it is a short drive away from a selection of ski resorts in the French Alps.

“With the launch of 42 new routes in the UK over the past year alone, we continue to bring better connectivity, affordable fares, and even more choice to our UK customers. We look forward to welcoming passengers onboard our young and green aircraft.”
