Wizz Air to boost Pristina operations

NEWS FLASH


Wizz Air will increase frequencies on its services between London Luton and Pristina next year to three per week, after announcing the opening of its base at the British airport. The additional flight will be added from March 25, 2018. Wizz Air entered the Kosovan market this April with the launch of state sponsored flights from Budapest, which was followed up by services from London. Both the airline and airport have been engaged in drawn-out negotiations in the past over the introduction of new flights. Wizz Air's Chief Commercial Officer, George Michalopoulos, previously said the carrier was "in continued discussions with Pristina Airport over new routes". "Hopefully this is just the start", Mr Michalopoulos noted. The only airline flying between Pristina and London, besides Wizz Air, is Germania.

  1. I guess their SKP flights are performing really well if they are adding flights to PRN.

    3. With Monarch's collapse, OU's incoming demise and BA's prices, LTN-ZAG would make the most sense.

    1. No. They do get the regular incentives that Pristina Airport offers for new routes and they will extend them by adding more frequencies.

    2. Are those the new incentives introduced to counter those in SKP?

    3. Niiice so it seems they are working. This will be such an interesting area to watch as competition is mounting between SOF, INI, SKP and PRN.

  3. Most lucrative destinations for Wizzair from Pristina would definitely be Bratislava and Eindhoven!

  5. Have Wizz Air dropped the Tuzla route??

    I was looking at flights from Luton to Tuzla in May 2018 but they've disappeared off the Wizz Air website!

    1. They said it would be seasonal. Maybe it starts later on during summer?

    2. They were already seasonal - starting up again in April time. The flights were there earlier in the week, but have disappeared.
