Interesting flights. Actually, AMS is kind of an oddball in the route network. For all the important cities, Wizzair chooses the same secondary airport as Ryanair:

Brussel - CRL
Milano - BGY
London - LTN
Stockholm - NYO
Rome - CIA
Barcelona - GRO
Paris - BVA

AMS is the only 'main' airport, except from of course their bases in BUD and WAW. Well, there is just no real alternative for AMS as of now, we will have to wait for LEY, which will not have commercial service before 2008.

The AMS-BUD route will now have strong competition. KL and MA have 4 daily codeshared flights (1 KL, 3 MA). SkyEurope flies the route too, and now Wizzair. And with Malev joining oneworld, it still has to be seen if the codeshare will remain.

Why don't they fly WAW-AMS? Interestingly, SkyEurope dropped this route. Were the yields that bad?

I scratch my head, therefore I am.

The reason SkyEurope decided to drop the route among others was due to high landing fees at WAW. Instead, they decided to concentrate on expanding the KRK base. Perhaps yields were low but I wouldn't be surprised if Wizz start WAW-AMS sometime soon once they acquire more A320s.

The only question I have is, who thought up the name and is the beer free?
