WizzAir is to cancel Lviv-Luton, but will continue its Kiev-Luton flights.

A rare failure for Wizz Air at LTN, but IIRC the route had a very high starting frequency for a new market, which cant have helped

Was it 4x weekly? I can't recall.

I think it might have been 4xWeek. 2xWeek might have been more prudent as an initial frequency

Great shame, Lvov is a beautiful city. I think the problem is the high fares; I checked a few months ago and it was something like £69.99 + taxes on LTN-LWO, although only about £15 including taxes on the return - same with KBP, which to me seems very odd. However, KBP is in the middle of the Ukraine, whilst Lvov is served by frequent coaches from Poland, where you can fly to from €0 on FR. The Ukraine is generally a poor country, and the starting difference in fares is almost a month's wages for the average person.

The route stopped last week with immediate effect, the route was operating 4 times weekly... It was a brave route for Wizzair, considering all other routes from the UK to the Ukraine with other airlines originate from Kiev, I think 2-3 times weekly would have been a better option.

The Lviv to Luton route was only operating for three months, so Wizzair didn't really give the route much time to mature. It must have been operating very low payloads to cancel it after such a short time.

Wizzair is operating over 100 flights a week from LTN, which isn't half bad considering not a single aircraft is based their and demonstrates how strong their other routes are!

Their has been a couple of other failures on routes from LTN with Wizzair and these include:

Kaunas
Ljubljana
Split
Skopje

Split

Strange that this one failed..I know they operated to Split and Ljubljana in W patterns and they must have felt they could make more money using the aircraft elsewhere. Zagreb is still operated by wizzair in a W pattern (from Wizzair Bulgaria i think). I think they should open a base in Zagreb, maybe with 1aircraft and fly daily to london, Germany and maybe within south East Europe...
