|Wizz Air operating flights from four EX-YU cities this winter|
Wizz Air will maintain a strong presence throughout the former Yugoslavia during the 2014/15 winter season, which begins on October 26. The low cost airline recently revealed its schedule and put tickets on sale until late March 2015. From Skopje, its busiest base in the former Yugoslavia, Wizz Air will maintain a similar schedule to that of this summer. The airline will operate two weekly flights to Charleroi, Cologne, Bergamo, Hahn, Beauvais and Treviso, as was the case this summer season. Instead of the current three weekly services to Gothenburg and Dortmund, the airline will maintain two weekly flights over the winter. Eindhoven will be boosted from two to three flights per week while Basel and London Luton will see a reduction of one weekly flight. Services to Memmingen will be operated three times per week. During the New Year and Christmas holidays, Wizz Air will run additional services to select cities. The airline’s upcoming winter schedule from the Macedonian capital sees a significant increase in operations compared to last winter.
Despite suspending flights from Belgrade to Charleroi earlier this month and reducing frequencies on several other destinations, the low cost airline will maintain all of its services from its Belgrade base this winter. Furthermore, Wizz Air will continue operating flights to Larnaca in Cyprus, which were launched at the start of the summer season and were originally planned as a seasonal service. Flights to London Luton, Dortmund, Basel, Memmingen, Stockholm and Eindhoven will run twice per week, while services to Beauvais, Malmo and Gothenburg will be maintained with three weekly flights.
This summer will also see the launch of new flights from Dortmund and Eindhoven to Tuzla, both of which will be maintained during the winter. The airline will operate two weekly flights from Basel and Eindhoven, same as this summer, while services from Dortmund and Gothenburg will be reduced from three to two flights per week. Malmo will continue to run with three weekly flights. Finally, the no frills airline will maintain its services from Charleroi and London Luton to Ljubljana, which will operate two and three times per week respectively. Wizz Air is in talks with Ljubljana Airport to launch new routes to the Slovenian capital at the end of the year, primarily from Scandinavia.
