      Wizz already flies from SKP and TGD to MXP and in the next month they will also start from TIA (to BGY) and PRN. Will definitely be interesting to see

      yes there will be impact like all the other routes had impact = none

      congrats for thinking Wizz will canibalize its own existing routes

      France-Szerbia is right. The SKP-MXP route might be affected or hurt as there was no flight from PRN.
      It seems that all the airports in the region are connected to Milan's airports MXP and BGY. I think it's time for a connection to Milan's 3rd airport: LIN.

      and why would Wizz hurt their own route to SKP? #questionsthatbotherme

      The same way extra flights to LJU affect zag? In aviation there is a term called overlapping catchment area. #aviation101

      we see the same question popping up with every new route launched from PRN or even INI (but never for OHD funny enough). wondering why.

      people on this blog seem to overestimate the amount of people from neighbouring countries using SKP airport. yes of course there are but not of a crucial amount

      another thing AirPristina offers charters to Milan as they do to Verona among other charter companies. They are the first to be "impacted" by this if at all

      The only reason OHD grew so much in 2019 is because Wizz has not been growing in Albania. That changed recently so let's see what happens of that little airport. So far they only had one great year.

      It was reported on here that CEO of PRN said that about half of passengers at SKP are from PRN area. He is in the business so I doubt he would be making this up.

      Now the story that was told about SKP is switching to OHD.Let's see this, let's see that...PRN/TIA (even INI) will overtake their passengers and lots of other blah blah!

      Relax... Wizz is only starting to grow in TIA and PRN, still too early to determine.
      Albanians are essential for Macedonian airports

      Needless to mention that PRN is doing widebody A340, BA LGW and has its pluses when it comes to connectivity. PRN does not entirely rely on 1 airline and enjoying legacy plus LCC mix.

      I think only SKP and TZL have such reliance on one carrier. Not good.

    Wow! They are aggressively expanding in MXP and LCA �� and aggressively entering Greece and Spain! Exotic airports such as beautiful Menorca and Santorini.
    PRN is the only ex-Yu connection. Sad fact is that W6 is really skipping the region.

      there are so many yugos around Salzburg. Cheap flights from SZG will attract every gasto south of Munich. Wizz could easily start BEG,SKP,PRN ..

      Is INI-SZG that popular? Seems like the new BEG-FKB!

    5. Anonymous17:21

      there are no numbers publicily available for INI-SZG so please refrain from words like "killing it" (we know how the german numbers look like and they are far from it)

      SZG seamed like a logic destination for long time for the eastern parts of Ex-Yu if it wasnt for the expensive airport

    6. Nemjee17:30

      From what I know only STR is a bit weaker, the rest are ok. Lufthansa added some 60.000 passengers on BEG-MUC in 2019 so I would consider that a success.

      As for INI-SZG, we might not have the numbers but we have this:

      So SZG is the logical choice for eastern ex yu but you doubt their success in ini? ok, odd

      a logical destination doesnt mean automatically a success. look at ZRH-INI

      Delete
    9. Nemjee17:43

      ZRH-INI performed just fine until JU launched their subsidized flights to that German village right on the border. It's not like the route failed in a Star Alliance hub with minimal competition.

      Delete
    10. Anonymous17:58

      I would be very surprised if ZRH failed because of launching FDH. We have seen a LF of less then 30% in some months. Then more probably because of Basel and Wizz or just the yields were not right

      Delete
    11. Nemjee18:04

      Well, LX was pretty full to INI and the A320 was a regular visitor especially in summer. They operated for years until JU launched FDH. I'm just putting two and two together. ;)

      The moment Tuzla pays them more money they will add flights.

  12. Wizz knows where the money is. Lastly they banged on it by launching Vienna-Prn, now this!
    It feels that June will get in motion all exYu Airpirts at last. This is excellent!

      Oh yes, Mon Ami omnip. varadi is a clever person. He is Eastern European and knows very well what is what and when is when. The influence of Wizzair today has reached to a point of operating SKP-BTS or TSR-MAD. This is how it is today....
