First of all in May, Wizz Air launched a daily service from Luton - Katowice, they then annouced they were going to go head to head with easyJet and fly daily to Budapest.
A couple of weeks later they have announced both routes are going to go twice daily.
Then yesterday they announced they will be launching twice daily services from Luton - Warsaw and a daily service to Gdansk!
It seems the likes of easyJet and Ryanair have been to slow to react and the countries of Eastern Europe have beaten the big boys to these new routes.
Wizz Air does not seem afraid of competition, by taking on easyJet on the Budapest route and the likes of SkyEurope and Air Polania who already operate routes between London, Warsaw, Katowice and Budapest.
Wizz Air seems to be a very smart little outfit and seems to know exactly what they are doing. They have major financial backing from US Investors and have just secured a deal giving them 40million US Dollars to invest. They also have some quite high profile directors on the baord, with József Váradi as the CEO and was formerly the CEO of Malev, and Lynn Wotherspoon as the Vice President and she use to the be CEO of Buzz before KLM sold it to Ryanair.
I love the livery on their A320's and they offer leather seating throughout.
