Wizz Air launches new Luton-Tenerife South route
19 November 2019 @ 21:52

BUDGET carrier Wizz Air is the latest to announce a new route from the Canary Islands to the UK which could help fill the gap left by long-established package tour giant Thomas Cook, following its sudden collapse in September.

The Hungarian airline, which runs 340 routes Europe-wide, currently only operates about 12 in Spain, but it is a young company with some of the newest aircraft in the industry at present.

Managing director for Wizz Air UK, Owain Jones, says the firm is 'delighted' to be able to expand its network by offering 'direct and affordable' flights to and from 'the beautiful island of Tenerife'.

“Lots of people know Tenerife for its beaches but, as always, we want our passengers to discover the other wonderful and lesser-known hidden corners of their destination – forests, volcanoes, mountains, are all waiting to be uncovered,” Jones says.

The inaugural Wizz Air flight from Luton to Tenerife South landed at exactly 16.41 on Saturday, and the island government, or Cabildo, organised a special reception for passengers and crew with a costumed parade and a free promotional kit about Tenerife which included a detailed map, playing cards with questions about their destination, and a bag of typical savoury snacks known as rosquetes.

Wizz Air's new route between Tenerife and the UK comes shortly after Jet2 announced an additional 197,000 seats from Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow to the island, as well as promising to continue increasing places available for the coming summer and for winter 2020.
