Wizz Air to pull out of Slovenia, suspend eight Bosnia routes


Low cost carrier Wizz Air will temporarily suspend its sole service to Slovenia over the coming winter, as well as eight routes from its base in Tuzla. With this latest development, Wizz Air will have temporarily suspended 36 routes from markets in the former Yugoslavia.

The final service this year between Charleroi in Belgium and Ljubljana is scheduled for October 24, with two weekly flights to be reinstated on March 30, 2021. Wizz had made plans to downgrade its year-round operations on the route to a seasonal summer service last year but reconsidered following the collapse of Adria Airways in September 2019. Ticket sales for flights past this October were suspended this week. Wizz Air began serving the Slovenian market in October of 2012 and has continuously maintained flights from both Charleroi and London until last October, when operations from Luton Airport were discontinued, while services from the Belgian city were briefly suspended in October and November. During its last full year of service from Charleroi to Ljubljana in 2018, Wizz Air carried 33.642 passengers on the route.

Wizz Air will be adding a further four routes to the other four which have already been suspended from its Tuzla base. The airline will discontinue services to Berlin, Cologne, Baden Baden and Vaxjo over the winter season, with plans to restore them in late March 2021. Services to Salzburg, Vienna, Billund and Friedrichshafen, which have already been suspended but were to be reinstated in late October, will not return to the network until the 2021 summer season next March. As a result, Wizz Air will run flights from Tuzla to Basel, Dortmund, Hahn, Memmingen, Eindhoven, Gothenburg, Malmo and Skavsta over the winter.

Wizz Air warned last week that its industry-leading recovery could stall as Covid-19 warnings and restrictions hamper travel across Europe. The low cost airline has been one of the fastest to recover from the ongoing coronavirus crisis, currently flying at 80% of last year’s capacity. However, ticket data shows Europe’s travel recovery began to stall in August after a stronger performance in July, and Wizz said 80% capacity was as high as it could go under current circumstances, and that capacity might fall again. “From here on, either you’re going to be able to hold the line or somewhat come down on capacity”, CEO Jozsef Varadi said.

      @Purger: The majority of those bases (you call an expansion) were open with 15 aircraft taken away from existing bases resulting numerous cancelled routes and frequency cuts. Since then huge cuts in frequencies were done at the new bases (eg. TIA and MXP) as well. Wizz Abu Dhabi will be started with only 2 aircraft (and only 14 weekly flights altogether) instead of the 6 originally announced. 25 destinations out of Budapest were suspended for September. Per their latest announcement only 60% of the capacity is being used in this quarter (ending in September) and even less flights will be operted in the winter with 30+ aircraft grounded. They are expanding only in words and theory so that they can take the money from ticket sales.

    2. "Iako je broj tjednih redovnih letova za Ljubljanu u kolovozu bio ekstremno nizak, tek 36 (5 dnevno), ove zime taj broj će biti značajno niži.

      Od letova je odustala Transavia za Amsterdam (2 leta tjedno u kolovozu), a LOT je prekinuo letova od 16.9. do 25.10. pri čemu je vrlo upitno hoće li letjeti ovu liniju zimi (u kolovozu 5 letova tjedno). Od obnavljanja linija je odustao i British, Brussels, Windrose i Israir.

      Istime je broj letova za Ljubljanu pao na tek 29 tjedno (4 dnevno) i to za Frankfurt (12 tjedno), 6 tjedno za Paris, te po 3 tjedno za Istanbul, London Luton i Beograd, jednom tjedno za Berlin i za Podgoricu. Za Ljubljanu lete sa po jednom linijom Lufthansa, Turkish, Air France, Air Serbia, Montenegro i sa dvije easyJet.

      Da je Adria na životu ovakva tragedija za Ljubljanu ne bi se desila. Isto je evidentno u Beogradu i Nišu (gdje većinu letova leti Air Serbia), Zagrebu, Splitu, Dubrovniku i Braču (Croatia), te Podgorici i Tivtu (Montenegro).

      U ovom momentu Ljubljana ima manje dnevnih letova od Pule, Zadra i Podgorice (koji su uvijek bili daleko od nje), a na razini je Sarajeva i Tuzle."

      do you really believe that LH group would base an aircraft in LJU if you give them 10 eur/pax? Even with that price Slovenia would spend 10 mio EUR per year (which is much higher than it was yearly loss made by JP)

      Not to mention that new carrier would employ Slovenians which would not take money from Employment institute anymore. In addition those employees contribute to Slovenian economy 40% of salary.

      At the end it's much much cheaper to establish own carrier rather than subsidize foreign carriers.

      Why would they need to base the aircraft in LJU? Slovenia mainly needs hub connectivity and this can easily be achieved with LH Group's existing business model.

      Only LH had quite solid business model as they had aircraft here over night. There were still space for improvement but ok. For other LH group flight it was complete disaster in any aspect. One flight per day and even this one was in the middle of the day. With such business model LJU connectivity will remain as it is - catastrophic.

      Didn't say that company should be established because of job. But among all other advantages, this is another one to reconsider that option.

      @Anonymous09:24:

      Unfortunately, there is one tiny, albeit fatal flaw in your plan. Nobody will want to fly to LJU if there are other markets were more money can be made. Even if someone would be willing to fly empty planes (with costs covered by Slovenian taxpayers), as soon as a new, more lucrative market emerges, they would move there. That's how profitable airlines work.

      Now, on the other hand, with a national carrier, if it can break even, you do not have such a problem.

      Unlike. Once the Covid economic impact kicks in, people will start cutting down on their expenses and paying 20 EUR for a ticket will always have higher yield than a 200 EUR ticket with the legacy carriers.

      And don't forget, most state-owned airlines in Europe got enormous amounts of loans to survive, that will need to be paid off at one point, while LCCs typically have large cash reserves and don't need to adapt their business model as much, as they can depend on low ticket cost to boost demand.

      Wizz said they have cash for year and a half. Covid crisis in the travel industy will last at least 3 to 4 years, so Wizz will be in trouble. Governments will give more subsidies to their airlines and extend loan terms if needed. Long term losers are LCCs.

    3. Anonymous15:24

      I keep on saying the same thing from the beginning: This crisis will hit LCCs most, unlike everyone's expectation. Because LCCs' business model relies on heavy demand. The problem aviation industry faces now is the collapsing demand, which no-one was able to reverse until now. This is not a price sensitivity problem, the demand collapsed completely. And the remaining travelers do travel because they have to, which means the ticket price doesn't play any role in these remaining travelers' decisions.

      If this crisis continues in 2021 summer, we may see for the first time in 21st century that LCC traffic lags behind the legacy one.

      FLAG CARRIERS pay its employees respectable or even decent wages. Salaries represent a higher % of the cost to the company.
      Flag carrier is also expected to be SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE because of this its operations and services are held to higher standard (flying quality, safety reserves, passenger care) and it is expected to also serve interest of the country that it represents.

      LCC pay low wages to administration and flight hours to pilots. So, it represents lower % of the cost to the company.
      LCC is known to fly with min fuel reserves; if there is a holding on a destination airport, they would be the first to declare emergency due to low fuel and force first in que landing.
      Care for passengers in non-existent and RESPONSIBILITY ONLY TO INVESTORS.

      Indication how serious the situation is in LCC is:
      -Fire and rehire policy of Wizz
      -Ryanair approach if you do not take the collective agreement where starting salary is below minimal wage salary of the country, they will close the base

      In short if flag carrier would do half of the shady business that LCC it would be closed long ago.

      Salaries-wise, LCCs in Europe tend to pay much more money than "legacy" carriers in exyu.

    Slovenians are still flying from nearby countries: mainly from Italy and some from Croatia.
    Now they are doing it mostly for Spain and to a small extent to Nederland and even smaller to Belgium.
    To Spain they are vacationers from Slovenia: flying to Italy: they are avoiding isolation on return easily.
    Strange that Slovenia bureaucrats are not doing nothing against this meanwhile at the Croatian border is different.
    Numbers of Slovenians flying to Spain are not negligible. Many among them are working in the health sector and they have a schedule for vacation end of this or next month.

    How many daily departures are expected in LJU this winter? I now see a rough number of 6-8 daily flights and there is a flight to Las Vegas this weekend!
    Interesting to see Trade Air operating Greek charters, too:

      What, Las Vegas??? Wow, Skobir, you have really outdone yourself this time. When can we expect Emirates and Qatar? I know you have been in talks with them for the last decade. Surely, something will come out of it.

    With many airlines leaving the region, who ask to be subsidized, I wonder if airports/governments will want to subsidize the carriers once all this is clear. Money will be tight.

    The management of Wizz Air made a bet on the virus which turned out to be a failure. The price are being paid by the employees (20% already fired, the remaining ones had to move base and are working for a reduced salary with a bad roster and there is a strong rumor about another round of redundancy) while the members of the management are still getting their fat bonuses and selling shares for 100+k GBP on a daily basis.

      Correct. And Varadi just sold some shares and earned a whopping 3.000.000 GPB by being an a*hole.

      LJU will surely be a goldmine in the Covid winter. How isnt OU using this opportunity to lose more money? It's what they do best after all

      Slovenia is throwing money into those two while ignoring aviation and maritime transport. I hope the rest of Europe is smarter than that.
