    1. This is a good news. Competition between airlines is good, because WIZZair has become much expensive than it was before.

    2. You mean Wizz Air out of Tuzla, right? If that's so then it's no wonder growth has slowed down.

      I wonder what's next for them.

    3. This is a great news for Banja Luka!

      As already expected FR will not stop on 2-3 destinations and Banja Luka will finally get the positions it desrves in Ex-YU

    Već sam par puta napisao: modus operandi Ryanaira je prvo najaviti dvije linije, onda svakih par tjedana najavljuju nove linije, do nekih 4 ii 5 koliko je uobičajna praksa da lete iz neke destinacije koju pikiraju. Tako je bilo i u Nišu, i u Podgorici, i u Rijeci, i u Puli… U svim tim gradovima imaju 5 linija i na isti način su ih pokretali.

    Stoga možemo očekivati do kraja ljetnog reda letenja 2019 da će Banja Luka imati 5 linija Ryanaira sa po 2 leta tjedno (10 letova), a nakon toga povećanje frekvencija i broj linija raste samo ako se postojeće pokažu isplative. U nekim slučajevima nakog godine dana linije se zamijene drugima, ukinu su linije, pa čak se ukinu i baze (Temišvar npr.).

    Ryanair otvara linije kako im dolaze avioni. U početku linije i ovako imaju manju popunjenost pa im je više-manje svejedno. I ovako prvu reviziju isplativosti i prilagodbu linija i frekvencija rade nakon godine dana, nakon što vide cjelogodišnju popunjenost.

  4. I just checked on internet that there are up to NINE daily buses from BNX to ZAG:

    So, when the flights to NYO become a reality and FR prices 30€ it will definitely work out well for the bus companies operating between the 2 cities.

    1. I am waiting if Wizz will respond to all this.

    2. NYO already available on FR from RJK - double closer to ZAG and with no border crossing, so I doubt it would attract lot of ZAG passengers. Memmingen is to close to go opposite direction from ZAG - time needed to BL - already in Austria and just couple more hours to "Munich West'". The only of these 3 which could affect ZAG a little bit is Charleroi, but than again there are FR flights to it from PUY and ZAD, even RJK in peak season, so at least for this initial period, Banja Luka will definitely not become "Zagreb East". And for some later time and more destinations, let's wait and see

    3. Truth be told, Banja Luka will never become 'Zagreb East' so there is no need to belittle them.

      Also, you are forgetting that all of Slavonija used to fly from ZAG but now there is OSI, TZL and BNX. Growth in April was already down to like what, 5%?

    4. Norwegian has weekly flights to ARN, so not every pax will choose BNX to travel there by bus

    5. ZAG is incomparably more expensive than LJU, BNX, OSI and TZL.

  5. Iberia introducing route from DBV to MAD during winter is bigger news than this.

    1. Perhaps there is a reason it has not been published as a news flash item. Be patient.

    2. Will do. Thank you for answering.

    3. Forgot to add, congrats, Banja Luka!

    4. It's not only DBV. Iberia is going year - round to ZAG as well starting this winter
