    No matter how massive their cash reserves are, no one can handle this crisis easily. Look at DL, one of the most profitable airlines in the world and overnight they had to ask for help.

    1. The fact they asked doesn't mean they HAD to ;)

      But they did. Cancellations overtook the number of bookings. They burned through their reserves overnight. A friend of mine flew on UA from LAX to Hawaii and they were 15 on the 772.

      Beograd, 24. mart 2020 – Wizz Air je objavio danas da, usled uvedenih ograničenja putovanja, privremeno zatvara svoju beogradsku bazu i produžava trenutnu obustavu dolaznih I odlaznih letova sa Aerodroma Nikola Tesla Beograd i sa Aerodroma Konstantin Veliki do 1. maja 2020 godine.

      Ograničenja putovanja predstavljaju meru sprečavanja širenja pandemije kovida-19. Putnici sa rezervacijama u ovom periodu će biti automatski obavešteni putem imejla ako su rezervaciju izvršili direktno na sajtu wizzair.com ili preko mobilne aoplikacije ove avio-kompanije. 120 odsto orginalne cene karte će biti automatski prebačeno na WIZZ račun putnika i taj iznos će moći da se iskoristi u naredna 24 meseca za kupovinu Wizz Air proizvoda i usluga. Putnici takođe mogu da se odluče za refundaciju u novcu – koja podrazumeva dužu proceduru – i biće obavešteni o neophodnim koracima za bankovni transfer ili transfer na bankovnu karticu u odvojenom imejlu. U tom slučaju putnici imaju pravo samo na 100% originalne cene karte.

      Putnici koji su karte rezervisali preko putnih agencija – uključujući onlajn putne agencije – treba da se obrate kompaniji od koje su kupili karte.

      Iako je trenutna situacija van kontrole Wizz Aira, avio-kompanija se izvinjava zbog mogućih neprijatnosti izazvanih zabranom putovanja i naglašava da su bezbednost i dobrobit putnika i posade najvažniji prioritet ove avio-kompanije

      Maybe MMX is the only route they plan on resuming that early? Sweden is behaving very irresponsibly with the virus so I am sure they won't be closing down their airports any time soon.

      No, they just haven't updated their site yet. Ryanair was selling tickets between Montenegro and Italy for days after Montenegro banned all Italy flights.

    5. "Sweden is behaving very irresponsibly with the virus"

      Swedes are the most risk-averse nation in the world. They just didn't submit to the mass hysteria.

      What do you mean closed? It's not closed, there are flights in and out of Schengen!

      Mass hysteria? the deaths in Italy are the result of mass hysteria? no. They decided to go for the money, not for human lives.

      Those deaths are much less than people dying from other causes.

    Even May 1st is optimistic, and certainly if flights resume by then from BEG, it most definitely not be to those countries like Sweden, Germany, Switz, Italy, France and Spain who are currently in a death spiral as far as the spread of this virus goes.
