Wizz has announced that it is cancelling “a large number of flights” from Doncaster Sheffield Airport from 10 June onwards.

The airline says the move is “a result of Doncaster Sheffield Airport indicating that it is unable to guarantee the terms of its commercial agreement with Wizz Air”.

One of the final nails in DSAs coffin IMO

Be interesting to see what DSA's response to that statement is.

Looks like its the Sun flights which have gone, the East European remaining.

I'll keep saying it there's zero demand from Doncaster. Most of the sun flights were less than half full
from a DSA perspective, they've spent almost ten million upgrading the terminal for the Wizz base. What now? Other than TUI no one will touch the place.

I think it's clear the issues here are more DSA related. Wizz have said as much in their presser.

Let's not forget the head guy at the airport quit not long ago, and unless I've missed it hasn't been replaced.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more bad news coming out of DSA before the end of the year.

Yes, Wizz Air's press releases are never bollocks. Maybe the airport should calculate the amount of delay caused by Wizz being unable to crew the base. Which won't be a problem from mid-June, miraculously.

​​​​​​Regardless of blame there's only one loser and it's DSA. Who else is going to step in to pick up the pieces? Every possible runner has already been, and gone.
​​​​​​
Wizz were the only chance of building a decent offering out of DSA. How sustainable is a TUI base of a few aircraft for the long term? Or will Peel just cut and run and concentrate on the land?

Unfortunately I don't know but anyone who considered Wizz the saviour of DSA was gravely wrong. Scroll back a bit and read what I said a few weeks ago. It happened awfully quickly.

Care to quote more than two?

Also do you care to quote why DSA have broken the agreement terms? No, thought not - 1.you dont know and 2. Legal would have you in court. Rather than being a DSA negative fantasist, pipe down.

Wizz didnt uphold last winters quota for new terms and havent this summer, and tried to rewrite the deal, the second based aircraft hasnt materialised which means DSA pulled the strings but won't publicly to keep a relationship.

So if we believe what you're saying, how does DSA return from this? Who does it reinstall confidence in its customers?

How does it grow in future other than TUI?

Why be made out to be the culprit if it isn't their doing?

Doesn't add up

Because if they don't go with the story they will loose the WAH flights as well which would be a double whammy.

See TBSC's reply.

Mr Frost, you don't know as usual and spout your social media rubbish which may ultimately get you in slanderous hot water....

Wizz is like a mini Ryanair. It is always someone else’s fault and never their fault for failing to deliver on its promises.

I have to laugh that someone on here claimed DSA had turned down Ryanair in favour of wizz. Wonder if they'll be going cap in hand now?

Also, it seems the terminal work to enable the Wizz base was paid for by a loan from taxpayers money. Wonder if they'll be getting an explanation?

It's about time this white elephant closed for good. There is no need for an airport in Doncaster!!
