Doncaster Sheffield Airport has been announced as the second UK full-based operation for the budget airline Wizz Air - creating new routes and increasing its annual capacity at the airport by 300,000 seats. 

Until now the airline has had its main base in Luton and focussed on central Eastern European routes, but the deal means that today, seats go on sale from DSA to Alicante, Malaga, Larnaca, Faro, Lublin, Kosice, and Suceava.
