Low-cost European carrier Wizz Air has announced plans to resume some flights from Luton Airport on May 1 – including to Tel Aviv, Israel.
The airline said it will restart selected flights with “enhanced” health and safety measures due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cabin crew will be required to wear masks and gloves on all flights and will distribute sanitising wipes for passengers, the airline said in a statement.
New distancing measures will also be introduced during boarding and aircraft will be disinfected overnight.
From May 1, flights will resume from the airline’s base in Luton, Bedfordshire, to Israel, as well as destinations in Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Portugal and Spain.
Customers will be asked to check in and make any additional payments for services – such as additional bags – online to reduce physical interaction at the airport.
Passengers will also be “encouraged” to make any on-board purchases using contactless payment methods, the airline said.
