Wizz Air to base second aircraft in Belgrade


Low cost airline Wizz Air will base a second plane, an Airbus A320, and open four new routes from Belgrade in mid-May 2017. New destinations include Friedrichshafen, Nuremberg, Hannover and Malta. All will operate on a year-round basis, twice per week. Furthermore, it will boost frequencies on services to Dortmund, Endhoven, Gothenburg, Memmingen and Stockholm Skavsta by adding an additional weekly flight. Speaking at a press conference in Belgrade, Wizz Air's CEO, Jozsef Varadi, said, “We are back in Belgrade after some turbulence. We are seeing significant demand for low cost flying in the country. We decided to deploy one more aircraft in Belgrade, our second Airbus A320 jet, that will be here in May. It is a significant investment of around 100 million dollars. It will create 36 new jobs”. As a result, Wizz will offer 642.000 seats from the Serbian capital in 2017. “This is the right stepping stone forward in this market which is unpenetrated. We are reacting to the increased level of demand”, Mr Varadi said.

Wizz Air's Belgrade expansion will come three years after it decided to significantly slash its operations from the city following a public spat over fees. This resulted in the airline relocating one of the two aircraft it had stationed in Belgrade. At the time, the carrier said the city had become one of the most expensive in its netowrk and accused "wannabe monopolists" Air Serbia and Etihad Airways of being behind the surge in fees. Commenting on the matter, Wizz Air's CEO said today, “The airport charges are still high but the situation has changed. Over the last three years overall traffic has gone up 35%. Given the stronger than expected demand we decided that, despite the high airport charges , we would expand. Should the charges come down we would do much more”.

Wizz Air faces direct competition only on one of its four new routes from Belgrade, that being Malta. The budget airline will compete against Air Serbia, although the Serbian carrier maintains the service only on a seasonal summer basis, whereas Wizz will operate it throughout the year. Wizz Air has expanded its operation across the former Yugoslavia this year. On top of its new flights from Belgrade and Niš this year, it has introduced three new routes from Skopje and two from Podgorica. The airline recently said it has plans to commence services to Sarajevo in the near future while continuing to maintain its base in Tuzla. Furthermore, the no frills carrier is in talks with Pristina Airport. In addition, Wizz will launch a new route each from Skopje and Tuzla later this year.

This afternoon Wizz Air's CEO and its CCO will be in Tuzla and are set to announce the airline's expansion plans from the city.

    1. BEG must have offered them subsidies. Either strong "marketing suppprt" and/or significant reduction in airport/handling fees.

    2. Obviously not

    3. Definitely yes

      Certainly BEG had offered them something, if not apt charges, then other type(s) of monetary support. No LCC/ULCC opens a single new route without financial aid/risk take-over.
      The Wizz CEO won't be that stupid and tell public+competitors the full truth, that is for sure.

    4. Your conspiracy theories are backed with zero evidence.

      On the other side, Wizz CEO has clearly stated what was his company's logic behind this new expansion in BEG.

      You may accuse him of hiding the truth because such accusations are a typical last resort of conspiracy theorists.

    5. Oh please, come on! Everyone with some market knowledge knows how the Low Cost business works and how these airlines finance themselves. Do you really think that an airline can regularly offer 2 hour flights for average of around 25 eur air fare (without taxes/fees)? Every low coster would be bankrupt after few weeks if this was their main source of income. But yes, you are right I have no clear evidence in this particular case and this is all a big conspiracy theory :) I guess there is no point discussing this on here with so many SRB/BEG fanboys.

  8. I presume that Belgrade airport made same discounts or "other benefits" to Wizzair. On that way they can easily and fast increase number of passengers what they really need after one year of decrease. Public is louder and louder about that, so airport management must do something.

    In same time there will be no questions why decrease, is it connected to Air Serbia, and there will be less critics of decrease share of foreign companies in BEG. So basically that is very good move of CEO to prevent public linch.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah because the entire public is so involved in Belgrade Airport. All the public can see if they are even remotely interested is that BEG had its busiest year in history in 2015.

      Delete
    2. Erm... Just because you are obsessed with JU and BEG's number of pax does not mean the public in Serbia shares your obsessions or it's interested in your conspiracy theories.

      W6 opens new routes because they see some opportunity in the market. Plain and simple. Unless of course you are a desperate hater with a desperate need to spin any aviation news against the object of his hate.

      Delete
    3. Of course not. My observation was not about general public, but about media and professionals, what is much more dangerous for CEO to stay on position.

      Let me just point how Wizzair was shouting about Air Serbia privileges and "monopolism", how unfair BEG discount are and that BEG is most expensive airport they have base in. So, if they change rhetoric something change in relations with Belgrade airport and they negotiate some benefits.

      For sure BEG would not do that if they were not in this position with so much less passengers. So CEO was forced to do that by present situation which is more than different than 2 years ago.

      Delete
    4. No. These are all your speculations and wishful thinking. If Wizz have seen some new opportunities or possible strategies in BEG then they will go after them regardless of previous problems in relationships with the airport. Wizz is a business and businesses follow profit, not emotions. Everything else is a cheap conspiracy theory.

      Delete
    5. Or they realized that their partial boycott did not brought BEG on its knees and they could not expect any old sweetheart discounts. A proof that they could work profitable with present fees. That said, they will enjoy some discounts for opening new lines.

    5. That's what they are currently paying. And, yes they can receive volume discount in the future.

      Delete
    6. @11:01

      Actually, no. The 'rules', i.e. fees applicable are set in the AIP, which is subject to instant review without notice should the government deem it necessary. To make the point, latest revision was around the time of introduction of Air Serbia and the subsequent hike of fees for everyone except them and removal of Wizz Air's 2nd aircraft.

      There's a clear conflict of interest. I'm sure you can connect the dots. Clear and fair would mean that the fee structure is tied to a contractual obligation, which is not the case at all here.

      Delete
    7. Sorry anon 11.19, I don't understand your point. The rules apply to everyone and are logical. If Wizz quadruples its departing passengers numbers, it can enjoy further discounts. These rules were double checked by European commission and it concluded that the rules were fair to everyone.
      The deal that Wizz had previously was unfair to other companies. Wizz cannot blackmail BEG or ZAG like they blackmail smaller airpots, or like they blackmailed BEG when JAT was on the ropes. After three years they realized that and moved on.

      Delete
    8. No. Contractual would mean that the airline has to maintain routes for the term of the contract but they can terminate whenever they want.

      Delete
    9. 11:19 here.

      @11:41, I think the point I made hasn't come through really. It's not about whether the rules are fair at a single point in time. It's about their applicability and who and how can alter them. In this there is a clear conflict of interest, and an inherent risk that no reasonable business would agree investing under. My assumption is that something has changed in the meantime for Wizz to agree to base a second aircraft.

      As to the 'blackmail' you refer to, that's business as usual. A hyperbole argument from where I stand.

      @11:43

      It's always a challenge having this conversation with an audience that hasn't had exposure to commercial contracting in aviation. I'm afraid this statement is way off the mark.

      Delete
    10. @12.11 If Wizz quadrupled the departing passenger number and BEG suddenly would decide to drastically change to rules to avoid giving discounts, than Wizz could appeal and EC would revisit the whole issue. This did not happen. So far it is still just a conspiracy theory.
      What has changed is that Ryan is entering Serbian market and Wizz cannot afford to continue their partial boycott and lose the Serbian market. They stopped playing the victim, realizing that their past sweetheart deal is not coming back.

      Delete
    11. @12:25

      Actually, it's solid business reasoning and mitigation of risk, especially given the counterpart is the Serbian government. Nothing to do with a conspiracy theory. I know this for a fact.

      I agree with the first part of the second point. Other than that, the 'sweetheart' deal is blown out of proportion by cheerleaders and not in the same order of magnitude of the fees fixed for Air Serbia. Think tenfold - couple of euros per pax versus tens of euros per pax. :)

  18. Malta is really a logical choice. There is a stable, young, even somewhat increasing Serbian community there. A couple of thousands of them, not too numerous but still quite significant.


    Not just construction workers and hotel workers but also dentists, doctors and professors. Add tourist visits to their resorts and youngsters and adults visiting English learning schools to that number.

    On the other hand, Barcelona has fewer Serbs than Malta. Barcelona is quite seasonal. I am sure Vueling would have increeased frequencies if there was enough demand.

    Note that many people who visited Barca, did that on those bus and ship tours and visited northern Italy and France as well.

  26. Air Serbia is guilty for Airport Belgrade not grow situation. Wizz can add more A320 but Air Serbia can not. Airport did not make new gate or bridge for long time, many years because no need for new gates and bridges. After 10 Airbus planes arrived in Air Serbia only one Atr and one A330 came. Atr needs no gate. A330 is only 5 flights in week. No new narrowbody jets for Air Serbia is no need for new gate, bridge and terminal. Air Serbia will get new A320 neo in 2019 to replace old 737 first. Airport will suffer because Air Serbia did not get more jets and Airport will stay small maybe grow after 2020. It is Air Serbia very guilty for Airport situation because they can not add more A319 or A320 planes!

    1. The airport had its biggest passenger growth since Air Serbia started operating. Check the basic facts first!

    2. My reading of that post, if I understand correctly, is that Air Serbia did not grow core narrow body jet fleet after initial 2013-2014 introduction of Airbus fleet. You are correct about passenger growth, and some of that came from improved utilization, higher LF, additional ATR72 and recently A332 and temporary CRJ900. However he has a point that airbridges are mostly used by A319/320/737 and Air Serbia had no equipment growth in that segment, and will not likely have growth until NEOs arrive, so as a result BEG had no need to add more gates and airbridges. Most of readers here blame BEG management for lack of new concourse, airbridges etc but he points finger at Air Serbia for absence of new airbridges or terminals as there was no need for them.

    5. Why should it be deleted?

    6. I also totally agree with anonymous 4 : 45 pm it's not bridges or gates or plane luck, for low BEG passengers growth, it's those two simple things that mentioned.

    7. No one is talking about passenger growth, but who is to blame for lack of construction at BEG in the past 3 years. It is Air Serbia management, not BEG management.

    3. Isnt it funny how the first city in Bosnia and Herzegovina that got the connection to London, one of the worlds capital is: TUZLA.

      Did Sarajevo had a line to Sarajevo since independence and when?

    10. but why Växjö?

      Well, with a little googling i found this:
      It's near Alvestra, and "Alvesta is an important railway junction, joining the Stockholm–Malmö–Copenhagen railway with the Gothenburg–Kalmar/Karlskrona railway".

    11. U Växjö ima dosta puno bosanaca, a sigurno i hrvata i srba jer Tuzla nije bas toliko daleko od Slavonije i od Srbije. Kod Växjö je i Värnamo a rekao bi da je onima u Jönköping i okolina Jönköping blizi Växjö nego Göteborg. Ima tu sigurno putnika neki, sto moj tata kaze WizzAir nece uvesti destinacije samo onako bezveze, to je sve sigurno provjereno sto se tice potraznje i putnika i profita.

  32. Tuzla needs a new terminal. It is so important because this terminal never handle this

  33. They should have more flights from Podgorica or start at Tivat

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is really funny that they fly from Skopje to Barcelona and not from Belgrade. Spain is so under-served from Belgrade. Vueling is too expensive and they fly only during the summer. Now I really hope Ryanair will introduce flights from Belgrade.

    1. ^Look when Wizz will fly new routes - next year.
      Enough time for Ryanair to announce flights from Belgrade to begin at the same time.
      Wizz will not fly where Ryanair has the upper hand like Barcelona or Bratislava,Weeze...

  35. I really hate the language they use, always at odds with the public entities and taking us all for idiots, gently putting aside the fact that the airports they operate from were built with public money and taxes and are one way or another an indirect state-support. Besides, instead of the usual populist mumbo-jumbo, the gipsy-turned-airline-CEO should better quote some facts i.e how much exactly is W6 paying in Europe and elsewhere so we can really see who is the most expensive airport they operate from. I have hard time believing BEG is more expensive than London or even Bucharest.
