I think this has been on the cards for a while, and the reason behind the terminal enhancements and extension will be going ahead soon.

Also states there is an intention to bring in further aircraft as part of the agreement within a matter of months.

Interesting developments. Will certainly give Jet2 a run for their money being situated halfway between their bases of Leeds and East Mids and now easier to get to via the motorways, at much cheaper prices.

Not just LBA and EMA, Newcastle and Teesside will welcome this news like a hole in the head.

Interested to see future developments as it sounds like this is just the beginning.

They started with an expanded Europe sun spots at Luton and I would expect some Canaries stuff for next year at Doncaster as well as an increased offering from their existing base at Liverpool.

I wonder how much DSA is paying Wizz UK. The last time they gave sweeteners to an airline it didn't end well (Flybe).

Who says they are?

They have a 15-year relationship, and as stated previously, this has been on the cards for a while now.

Think you are comparing chalk with cheese - Wizz are in a far better financial position and will know the DSA market well having been there many years. This move will have a lot of people looking over their shoulders.

OMG, Timmy is now some sort of expert! One wonders why he didnít mention the negotiations in this post from January.

A quick reminder to his previous trolling. Only one person looking pretty stupid at the moment.

May also be a little unsettling for TUI who have basically held a monopoly on holiday routes at DSA for a while now.

Great news for the airport and a 180 from the naysayer.

Interestingly the below article names Tenerife, Barcelona, Prague, and Szczecin which aren't on the list today - genuine mistake or Freudian slip?.

The DSA press release states that further aircraft will be added soon, so maybe these are just yet to be announced officially.

It says they go on sale today and that just looks like a cut and paste from a press notice - maybe an early version and there have been late changes?

Seens the most unlikely city paring.

Offers a quick and easy road connection to Amsterdam City Centre, which is a massive city break destination for U.K. travellers, with wizz already large number of flights out of EIN.

any new destination should be welcome news during these times.
