The Hungarian low-fare airline, is due to operate the services on Mondays and Fridays from 5 July using an Airbus A321 aircraft. Fares start from £17.99 one way.

Both routes, which are due to be in place until late September, were previously operated by Flybe.

Matt Thomas, chief executive for Ports of Jersey said: 'We are delighted to welcome another partner airline, Wizz Air to our increasing route network this summer.

'Cardiff and Doncaster have proved popular routes in the past. Therefore, it’s great to see the confidence shown in Jersey by Wizz Air in providing both residents and those wishing to holiday in the Island this summer an opportunity to reconnect.'

Meanwhile, Economic Development Minister Lyndon Farnham said: 'We have now successfully replaced all routes lost by the demise of Flybe, which is testament to both the work of Ports of Jersey and the strength of Jersey as a destination. Wizz Air is a very welcome addition to the portfolio of airlines serving Jersey and I wish them every success.'

Flights can be booked online at wizzair.com or by calling 09057 070 000.
