Wizz Air Names 5 Destinations On UK Green List

Flights to five of the UK government’s ‘Green List’ destinations are being re-started by Wizz Air from May 17th.

For those who have been dreaming of that post lockdown getaway, tickets are available now on or the airline’s mobile app.

Whether it’s a cultural escape to the vibrant cities of Faro or Lisbon in Portugal, a relaxing beach holiday to Larnaca in southern Cyprus, an adventurous trip to Reykjavik in Iceland or a getaway to the Mediterranean peninsula of Gibraltar, Wizz Air will have a total of 80 destinations on offer from 11 UK airports.

And passengers can book tickets with confidence, thanks to the airline’s travel insurance package which includes Covid-19 cover* and WIZZ Flex. With WIZZ Flex, travellers can cancel their flight up to three hours before departure without any fee and receive 100% of the fare immediately reimbursed in airline credit. Wizz Air’s new travel insurance now covers Covid-19 related cancellations and medical related expenses whilst travelling abroad.

As all holidaymakers are still required to take a pre-departure PCR test before their arrival back into the UK, Wizz Air continues to offer passengers an exclusive discount on Covid-19 tests and certificates through its partnership with Randox Health.

Owain Jones, Managing Director of Wizz Air UK, said: “The Wizz Air team welcomes the announcement from the UK government on the green list countries for the restart of international travel. At WIZZ, we are prepared to ramp up operations quickly when restrictions ease, with the recent delivery of four brand new A321neo aircraft and the expansion of our UK network.

“In the past year alone, we have launched over 20 new routes to Europe and beyond, providing affordable airfares to exciting destinations. We are looking forward to welcoming passengers back on board our young, green aircraft, where they can rely on our stringent health and hygiene measures and excellent service as they head to their post lockdown getaway.”
