French slot coordinator COHOR said it redistributed a pool of 6,672 slots at Paris Orly for the summer 2010 season, with half awarded to carriers with new entrant status and half to incumbents. New entrant slots were allocated to easyJet Switzerland for two daily flights to Venice, Vueling Airlines and Pegasus Airlines for one daily flight each and to Wizz for four weekly flights to Bratislava. Incumbent slots were allocated to TAP Portugal for three daily flights, Iberia for one daily flight, Midex Airlines for three weekly flights and Air Algerie for one weekly flight.
The Wizz Air slots stand out to me, considering they use secondary airports mostly - in the case of Paris, BVA. Also the choice of route - Bratislava. Looks like they wish to expand beyond just FCO service from BTS and further replace former SkyEurope capacity
