Gran Canaria is being added to Wizz Air’s Canary Islands network from Luton airport this summer.

The budget carrier is also raising the frequency of flights from Luton to Tenerife from three times a week to a daily service.

The new Gran Canaria route starts on June 4 with three flights a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays with fares starting at £35.99 one-way.

Wizz Air is adding daily flights from Gatwick to the Bulgarian capital of Sofia from June 1 at a cost of £30.99 single.

Owain Jones, managing director of Wizz Air UK, said: “It’s great to see our UK network go from strength to strength with the addition of two new routes which will provide UK passengers with even more low fare travel opportunities.”
