Wizz Air begins EX-YU expansion

Wizz Air to add four new routes from the former Yugoslavia

Wiz Air will begin expanding its route network out of the former Yugoslavia today with the addition of four new routes from two bases over the coming week. The budget carrier will first launch flights from Skopje Alexander the Great Airport to Berlin this morning, which will be followed by services to Copenhagen tomorrow morning and Bratislava next Monday. With the new routes, the airline has more than one million seats on sale from Macedonia this year, representing capacity growth of 22% on 2015. However, Wizz Air will decrease peak summer frequencies to Beauvais, Bergamo, Gothenburg and Malmo in order to facilitate aircraft for its planned new services. On April 17, the carrier will introduce flights to Hamburg, as a replacement for its Lubeck service, which will be suspended on April 15. Lubeck Airport has struggled with insolvency over the past three years, resulting in Wizz Air pulling out of the city altogether. Meanwhile, the airline will maintain services out of Ohrid to Basel and will resume its seasonal flights to London Luton on March 30.

Following over a year of downsizing at its Belgrade base, Wizz Air will introduce a new service from the Serbian capital, with flights to Baden-Baden in Germany to launch next Monday. The no frills carrier cut its capacity from the Serbian capital by 130.000 seats over the past two years, with 700 fewer flights operated as a result of Belgrade Airport's decision to increase fees, which Wizz says has made it one of the most expensive airports in its network. The Baden-Baden service will become the airline's first new route out of Belgrade since it introduced services to Larnaca in March 2014. However, this summer, Wizz Air will operate a flight less to Gothenburg on a weekly basis compared to last year, while services to Cyprus will be served once a week until mid-June, before increasing to last summer's two weekly flights. From Niš, the airline will maintain two weekly services to both Basel and Malmo.

No major changes are currently planned for Wizz Air's newest base in the former Yugoslavia in Tuzla. It suspended services to Sandefjord in Norway last winter, which will not be resuming over the summer. However, the budget airline will add an additional weekly flight to Malmo but will decrease one weekly service to Basel instead. Wizz Air has continued to fuel passenger growth at Tuzla Airport this year, which handled 39.174 travellers during the first two months of 2016, an increase of 56.6% compared to the same period last year. The airline carried 268.748 passengers in and out of Tuzla last year, up almost 75% on the year before.

Wizz Air will continue serving Ljubljana Airport this summer with services from Charleroi and London Luton, operated two and four times per week, respectively. Furthermore, the airline will resume seasonal flights from London Luton to Split as of June 19 and will run daily services on the route from July through to mid-September when the flights terminate. Please note that the changes listed in the tables above are preliminary and based on the airline's current availability as of March 27. Furthermore, the tables display the peak weekly frequency on each route during the course of the summer season. Some frequency changes might not come into effect until later on in the summer and operate for a limited period.

  1. It seems to me Wizz has pretty much shifted focus away from ex-Yu this year because it is dealing with Ryanair on a few fronts in Eastern Europe. Even the new Skopje flights were launched to beat Ryanair to it and not because they wanted to make a big expansion (like last year) and the fact that they decreased other frequencies to launch new flights proves it.

    1. Seems like there is a real fight going on in the north, more specifically in the Baltics. That area will become a bloodbath. Six million people and four airlines based there!

      As far as BEG goes, well... if FR launches flights then it will be the end for them. They have been stagnating for the longest time now, it's time to wake up.

      Delete
    2. FR will never launch flights with the current BEG setup. They are much more aggressive on costs than Wizz.

      Delete
    3. Well, Ryanair already operates from numerous 'expensive' and centrally located airports so launching BEG wouldn't be that unreasonable.

      Furthermore, seems like they are going for the kill when it comes to Wizz Air and BEG is one of their hubs in the region. So far FR has expanded in BUD, SOF, OTP, TSR... so BEG should be the next logical step, especially since it's the biggest single market in ex-YU.

      Delete
    4. It would be completely unreasonable to launch flights at an airport where the game is fixed against competition.

      Delete
    5. They do operate to expensive airports, true, but only because the market yield will return on the investment. BEG is expensive due to protectionism and the majority of the market yield isn't worth operating there. Serbians (all ex-yu pax, actually) don't have the same incomes as their western European counterparts, unfortunately.

      Delete
    6. I agree but at the same time I wasn't implying that they should open a base at BEG, I was merely speaking of introducing flights from their bases throughout western Europe.
      Ryanair's business model is slowly changing and part of it seems to include the total destruction of Wizz Air. That's where Belgrade comes to play. Their flights would be introduced as a mechanism to harm W6, not to make crazy cash off of Serbian passengers.

      I am sure Belgrade is more lucrative than Lublin, Zadar, Brno and so on. They could launch a few weekly flights from Sweden, Denmark, Germany, The Benelux and maybe even Barcelona. One advantage they have is that they are far more flexible than Wizz Air when it comes to their fleet.

      Delete
    7. @ Nemjee,
      Wizz are weak enough in Belgrade. I believe this is the reason for which they are not attacking them in BEG. They try to destroy first their strongholds such as BUD, OTP and SOF.

      Delete
    8. And guys, do remember that BEG is the only city of all that you mentioned that is not in the EU/EEA. Enough said.

      Delete
    9. The most important thing is that Serbs can travel without visas. Our diaspora is big enough to fill those seats so the fact that we are not in the EU is not such a handicap. I mean, do you honestly believe that all this lowcost presence in Sofia is realistic? Of course not. Their market demand is similar to the one in Belgrade. The reason why so many seats are on offer is because of the ongoing war between FR and W6; but also because of a relatively weak national carrier.

      Anon 10.17

      True, I agree but what will happen in a few months when FR consolidates its position in SOF, OTP..? They won't stop and launching a few lines here and there to/from BEG could happen. But the thing is that JU might end up being collateral damage, especially if they end up competing with FR on certain routes.

      Delete
    10. @Nemjee,
      TAROM are already out of the game. Today I've read that they have exceeded the planned loss for 2015 - from planned 8 mln RON to 41 mln RON and all this in year with record cheap fuel.
      Regarding SOF - they have bigger demand than BEG. Don't forget that they are not making any transfers - just the opposite of BEG. In BEG the transfer passengers are around 1 mln. When you take this 1 million from the BEG traffic figueres - you will see the real difference between SOF and BEG.

      Delete
    11. The biggest loosers in fight between FR and W6 will be mostly legacy carriers (FB, JU, RO), who cannot compete with such low operating costs.

      Delete
    12. I fear that unless Tarom finds an investor with deep pockets they are bound to go bankrupt sooner rather than later. Bucharest might be a busy airport but RO can hardly compete with Blueair, Wizz Air and Ryanair; especially not with their uncompetitive cost structure and a lack of a concise business strategy.

      As far as BEG vs SOF goes, there is something else we have to keep in mind. Sofia has far less competition from neighboring airports. Their closest rivals are Nis and Plovdiv, two airports which barely see any aircraft movement. Belgrade on the other hand has to compete with Timisoara, Budapest and even Tuzla to a certain extent. So even if BEG might get a million passengers from transfers it still loses quite a bit to its neighbors. The whole of northern Serbia is basically surrounded by airports which are linked to all the major cities in Europe.

      Delete
    13. FR got their asses kicked badly in BUD. They based 5 aircraft (from 0) when Malev went bankrupt and quickly scaled back to 2, with Wizz going up from 5 to 10. FR 'destroying' Wizz is not so obvious..

      Delete
    14. Who said that they were destroying them? I said that it seems they are heading in that direction and that it's their ultimate goal. Whether they will make it or not is a completely different story.

      Also, Malev went bankrupt over four years ago. Much has changed since then. Given that Ryanair is launching five new destinations out of BUD can only indicate that they haven't given up just yet on the Hungarian market. Budapest is Wizz Air's stronghold and if they lose it then they are as good as dead.

      Delete
    15. I'd rather say FR want a piece of the cake in every European market. I don't buy the idea they would enter any market only to harm Wizz, and since I don't see BEG being a profitable market for them at the moment due to a number of circumstances, I'd say FR entering BEG is a bit far fetched at this moment.

      Delete
    16. Which is why I said that their BEG flights would not happen immediately but at some point, like once they consolidate their operations in neighboring Romania and Bulgaria.

      Also, I don't see why BEG would be unprofitable for them. Sure, a base might turn out to be a financial fiasco but linking BEG with several European cities might not be such a bad business move.

      I'm not talking about W6 or FR. I'm talking about private companies which aren't reaching the pockets of the taxpayers. If somebody wants to run a company, let him run it on market mechanizem and not make the tax-payers to pay for his adventures and passion. I hope you understand me well now.

      Delete
    23. I do but it does not work like when you sell smartphones. Massive transport is a strategic industry, it has always been. People should have options to efficiently move themselves from point A to point B even when the commercial market does not see enough interest in it.

      If you travel on a bus, you use roads for which your government has paid a lot of money. If the government decided that the existence of that road should be left strictly to market mechanism, the road may have never been built.

      The world would look much different today if only (highly) profitable things were available. And it would not be a good look, if you will.

    24. You can see that there a lot of companies which are successful without getting subsidies from the government. You can see how a small company like Pegasus have grown over the years. Actually there a lof of examples in Europe of successful comnpanies running on market bases...

    28. To the successful companies you can add another 2 private companies from the Balkans - Aegean and Bulgaria Air. They aren't the best, but at least they are not subsidized.

      Delete
    29. 'Successful' companies in what terms? Financially successful or successful in offering many different categories of customers what they need?

      When you fly Pegasus (or some similar carrier) everything except the price you pay is an utter nightmare - starting from the check in at SAW. It actually saddens me that most of humanity are too poor to afford traveling like human beings in the 21st century. Their primary goal is to get somewhere with the money they can spare and I understand that - but I am not in Pegasus's target customer group. And I don't deny their financial success but to me in person it means nothing. Just because there are suddenly 2 billion new people in the world who can spend $50 on a flight once per year does not necessarily mean we should all plan our journeys from their perspective.

      Government subsidies of certain industries are centuries old and they are very unlikely to cease. Many of the richest and most powerful countries in the world have built their success on protectionism and subsidies. Economy of the European Union would be the first to fall apart if tomorrow morning we woke up with zero subsidies and zero protectionism everywhere in the world. US and Japan would follow.

      And if the largest European carriers ever reach the edge of going bust, we will all see how quickly their governments will pump the cash into them. Hungarians will then ask: 'Hey wait, but when we did the same with Malev you ordered us to back off and let the company go, what is this?'. And the response from big guys will be: 'Well, too bad for you...'

      I don't mind the government spending my tax money on its airline. Just as some of my fellow citizens don't mind the government spending some of their tax money on a joint venture in the car industry, or any other project that the market itself would never support. Some of us benefit here, some of us there, some don't benefit at all. But the bottomline stays - free market that regulates everything does not serve all of us either. There is no model that can please everyone.

      Delete
    30. Ah, as soon as we come closer to discussing some tangible results, a politician appears. Welcome to the discussion.

      I agree with most of what you said regarding governmental double standards. On the other hand, the comparison of different business models is pure hyperbole.

      None of the above justify limitless governmental financial coverage and subsidies. We can have a fair debate once a clear set of measurable goals are defined and tracked. Until then, cash is king.

    32. For the ones just tuning in, Wizz have been in war with Ryanair since 2007. Take special notice of Poland, Hungary and Lithuania. Some places they've won, some they've lost, some places they're even. I don't see the dynamics changing significantly.

      Delete
    34. Anon 4:21 PM,

      I am not a politician. I am just a customer who does not want to fly Pegasus-like carriers.

      When you say cash is king, it is more like 'poor man's cash is king' because this is what drives so many customers to Pegasus and Ryanair - the fact they are poor and cannot afford a flight worthy of a 21st century customer. In the lowcost segment there is no such thing as modern standards when it comes to customers - this is what makes them profitable. They don't give them any value because they know their passengers' primary goal is to get to their destination on a low budget and they will take any humiliation that goes with it, so that the private lowcoster can be profitable.

      If a government can promote a different experience among its citizens I would not be against that. After all, subsidies do not need to last forever. TK is a good example of how a government can pour billions of dollars in its airline and then start taking billions of dollars back from the airline's profit. I kinda doubt any private owner would do something like that.

      We can also approach this 'market/cash is king' from the opposite end: how about lowcosters stop receiving incentives and subsidies from airports? Why don't we leave that part to the market as well? And how about the courts worldwide order them to introduce customer service standards because we are not in middle ages anymore? Mandatory seat pitch, mandatory check in service, mandatory boarding service, mandatory conditions for the airline employees etc. etc... and then we see how profitable they will be?

      Free market has its tricks, it is not a fairy tale.

      Delete
    35. Great comment Anon 5:54PM. Btw, if I am not wrong, Austrian and Swiss received very generous financial support from their governments before being taken over by Lufhansa. That is also a form of subsidy. And the play field is not really leveled in Frankfurt, Vienna, Zurich. These airports favor Lufthansa and co. far more than BEG favors AS.

      Delete
    36. How are their airports favoring them? I don't buy it because all the airports you mentioned keep on seeing more traffic from non-Star airlines. If the situation was like in BEG then they would be fleeing, not adding capacity.

      2010: There is no traffic history. No proof this market will work at all.
      2011: They are launching London? It will never work, they need visas to travel to the UK.
      2012-now: Ha, they're basing an aircraft. They will leave as soon as the subsidies are over.
      2014: A 2nd aircraft? For sure it can't be as good as the first one. Look at the destinations, they are all gaestarbeiters. They are running out of ideas.
      2015: A 3rd aircraft? They can't go on growing by 20% indefinitely.
      2016: FR negotiating basing an aircraft? It's just to go after Wizz. The two can't coexist. SKP is a inflated baloon.

      And the beat goes on..

      Thank God *somebody* believed in this market and business model and put their heart and brains giving it all they got. Otherwise it would have never happened. Naysayers like the above are pervasive, both on this blog and in Wizz.

      You have to take into consideration the new aircraft fleet allocation by Wizz. I am certain the three new destinations would have actually been a 4th based aircraft had there been another available one. Of course, FR making a push across CEE doesn't help.

  10. Vidim da pocinju letove za HAM tjst prebacuju sa nekog areordroma u blzini na HAM.
    Iskreno mi nije jasno zasto nije ta linija uspostavljena iz BEG,jer bi sigurno imali dosta putnika,ali sta da se radi ASL je sad tu i za njih nema mjesta.(Inace oni bi trebali da pokrenu opsti rat protiv EasyJet-a,nek W6 puste i ovako ce on sam puci).FR bi definitivno trebao da uvede Madrid iz BEG,ako se ne varam tu je prije letio SpanAir.Sto se tice ovog rata za SOF izmedju W6 i FR,ne znaci da ce Ryanair da pobjedi jer su oni isto ratovali sa LH,ali su posle jake ekspanzije samo pokupili kofere i pobjegli.

  11. Some 10 days ago I accidentally found (and bought) ticket Belgrade - Maastricht Aachen (MST). I was sure I never saw it before, went here to check is there any news and found none so I thought it could've been existing route I wasn't aware of. But then, no one knows about it so maybe it is a new one. On Wizzair's site it stated it begins May 31st

  13. Steta sto se ASL tako lose pozicionirala na LCA. Wizz ima mnogo povoljnija vremena za DEP/ARR i trenutno je dominantan na ovoj ruti. Prosto je neshvatljivo ponasanje ASL i potpuna indolentnost, demand postoji i to za nekoliko polazaka nedeljno.

    1. Wizz leti samo 1x nedeljno za LCA tokom zime.

    2. +1

      Even crippled, old Jat had about 50 to 70 passengers with their horrible pricing and random times. I guess JU doesn't have the necessary aircraft to introduce a 'normal' flight like they did for stupid Malta.

      Delete
    3. Malta is that 'stupid' that they have increased its frequency from 2 pw to 3pw

      Delete
    4. Yeah, fascinating especially when you remember how many frequencies Larnaca had before Wizz Air took over. ;)

      Delete
    5. Malta is not too great of a decision based on loads actually, since even during July and August loads are so so. I don't have concrete info for the whole month period, but last summer on 3-4 occasions the flight had around 70 pax. Not bad, but during summer there is more priority for that aircraft to fly somewhere else.

      Delete
    6. In a meeting with Dane he said that Malta is being increased because of JFK though I think most connect via FCO.

  14. Hm, Malta - proslo leto sam pokusao dva puta preko touroperatora da uplatim sedmodnevni aranznan. Oba puta nije bilo mesta u avionu. Cini se ipak da ima demanda ali nema raspolozivih kapaciteta. A sta tek mozemo ocekivati ovo leto obzirom na desavanja u Turskoj. ASL jos uvek spava ... nadam se da neko iz komercijale cita ovo.
