Wizzair Arrive In Croatia And Slovenia!

Wed Feb 01, 2006 4:57 am

I have to say I was a bit sceptical about Wizzair when they first started flying their bright prink airbuses. I have always been a Sky Europe fan (when it comes to Central European LLCs). However today they have become my next best friend!
From 1st of May they are flying between London Luton and Split! and between London Luton and Ljubljana. This is just fantastic news...I've wiated for LCCs in Croatia for years and finally its happened. Its great for Split to get a cheaper connection to London. After years of Croatia Airlines' fantastically expensive and capacity starved service we got BA on the route; however they are expensive (for me any way Smile)

Its also great news for LJ..i love that town and the country and Easyjet's flights are always relatively expensive because its a popular route with too small a capacity. Ljubljana also gets its first LCC link with Belgium...another good move by wizz.
Also as part of their 'revolution' on 1st of may they are launching Budapest to Burgas in Bulgaria...maybe this is in preparation for launching Bulgaria as their new 'in' country?

I wish Wizz all the best on their new routes and its very good that they have got in early..please...Wizz....Belgrade next  crossfingers

Thanks for the info!

I think Wizzair has a bright (pink) future in front of them. I can even see them becoming the Jetblue of central europe. They placed another order for A320/319s just recently, and now more routes. They also operate out of the newly renovated terminal 1 in BUD, which has impressed a lot of passengers arriving into BUD with Wizzair.

This is great news. It wouldn't surprise me if a LTN-SJJ service started up soon, possibly 2-3 times a week, a real first for a LCC. Wizz have overtaken Sky Europe as innovaters in central Europe. LTN-DBV could also work, possibly only in summer as it is more seasonal than SPU.

I have also read they are going to be flying to Bourgas and Sofia direct from Luton.

This is what the the banner says at the top of Wizzair's website, but appears to be no official announcement.

I think the Sofia route is still 'via Budapest'. Maybe they will do the same with Burgas too..have a connecting night flight. I think that Sofia will become a wizzair base in the near future.
Its a shame that Sky Europe haven't taken the lead, they led the LCC expansion into Central Europe. They flew Slovakia-UK way before the likes of FR and Easyjet.

I think that croatia and Bulgaria will become the new battle grounds for the LCCs. Lets hope UK removes the visa for croats and serbs soon to increase the number of travellers. Bulgaria will loose its visa as soon as it joins EU in 11months time (hopefully).

Romania has yet to see significant LCC links....and its the biggest un-tapped market in South Eastern Europe.

Carpatair are rumoured to be flying Timisora-Stansted, so stealling a lead on UK LCC's.

Wizz and Sky Europe are doing all the hard work in opening up these central European areas, I hope FR don't come along and ruin the party by flooding the market with there tat once all the hard work has been done.

It doesn't really matter who starts when: U2 and FR will invariably always out-perform other, smaller airlines, simply because they can afford to loss lead and to effectively drive those smaller airlines out of the market (if they're going to compete on the route). No small airline will win a price war against FR or U2. Look at FR and GO in terms of DUB-Scotland - FR effectively murdered GO on those routes, even though GO was in a better financial and otherwise (i.e. better run and marketed) position than, say, SkyEurope and Wizz.

Anyway, it's always nice to see new no-frills flights from the UK to Central and Eastern Europe.

Their ZAG-LTN has had an incredible start. Wizzair says its bookings are so strong on the route that they have increased it from 4/week to 9.

How much are their fares? I ask because what matters is YIELD and not LOADS. Indeed, if they kept charging, say, £1, they could probably have multiple daily flights but would be earning bugger all - and would be deeply unprofitable.

All lo-co's have dynamic pricing. However, they have been surprised at the uptake on the ZAG route. I am sure that they know what they are doing if they choose to double capacity on a route.

Fares are quite high. Route starts 27 March, fares for the week of 2-7 april are 19.99, 26.99, 39.99 and 67.99. (LTN-ZAG). ZAG-LTN is considerably cheaper, 3.99-19.99.

You are right that loads don't say too much, but just like in your thread of 2 weeks ago, I do not totally agree. Loads can indicate the existance of a demand 'at all' - I assume there must be models, indicating viability by looking at loads at first booking - even at GBP 1. When I have free time I will have a look for these models, otherwise I know a subject for my final master thesis next year  Wink

Quoting Pe@rson (Reply 6):

Again, I do not disagree but I do not agree either. U2 and FR aren't divine - they can not do anything. When a carrier is already well estabilished on a route (other then you, I do believe in a form of brand loyality, even at LCCs*), it takes some time to make people switch carriers. You have to take losses and they will always make the decision if it is worth the money for the start-up losses.

And when the opponent has a similar cost structure, it's even harder to compete. I read an interview with Christian Mandl (SkyEurope CEO), beginning 2005, where he said that their CASM was considerably lower then U2 and only slightly higher than FR - mostly due to cheaper labour in Slovakia and Poland compared to the UK. I suppose Wizzair to be in the same region with respect to CASM.

The longer FR waits, the harder it gets to get the position in the market. Not impossible, but it's a question if it's worth the cost.

* no scientific proof, but perception from opinions of people in my environment. Often, I see and hear people making decisions to pay EUR 10-100
to fly a carrier they know, or flying form an airport they know - their reason is the feeling of familiarity is worth the extra money. Another issue is brand awareness; not everybody knows possibilites of LCCs - hardly anybody in my town (Enschede) knows that DTM is closer than AMS and that you can get very good fares on U2 to several destinations.

At the beginning of May, Wizz Air will start flying first to VAR/LBWN (Varna), then BOJ/LBBG (Bourgas).

I think that "open-skies" agreement will be signed soon, but in order to make both BEG and INI interesting for LCCs, there are two things that had to be done:
1. liberalizing visa restrictions
2. strong tourist promotion of the region; Belgrade might not be the most beautiful city in Europe, but it can offer so much (good night life, many interesting things to be seen, etc.)

Without that, load factors wouldn't be very high, I'm afraid.

Very sad day for aviation in Croatia in my opinion.

LCC have absolutely destroyed the industry I love! I cant understand how there is so much support for LCC here. Fine you save some dollars when traveling with LCC but if your not willing to spend cash when taking a holiday than your going to have a crappy time anyway.

I find this global trend towards LCC very scary.

Croatia Airlines is offers flights to major EU destinations for 99 euro including London! Other places as low as 40 Euro. Anyone else expecting to pay less is committing to the demise of an industry they (on appearing on airliners.net) apparently like!

LONG LIVE TRADTIONAL AIRLINES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They wouldn't be offering these fares if there were not LCCs. Traditional airlines with a sound business plan also still have a market, look at BA, KLM, Air France, Lufthansa, Iberia - all well alive and making profits.

Fares which are very restrictive (booking, availability, number of such tickets) and sometimes more of a marketing ploy than real fares. Going to LeBourget last summer, I got the cheapest fare ZAG-CDG-ZAG with OU of 245 euros, which is not all that much, but not all that cheap - even though I booked the trip 3 months in advance, during the summer cheap season, when more than 80% of all other seats on the flight were free. No cheap fare for me, even though I specifically asked for it.

Quoting Mig21UMD (Reply 20):

On our side of the world, the average monthly paycheck for an average worker in Croatia is around 300-700 euros. A ZAG-LHR-ZAG trip on OU for one adult, booked 3 months in advance, would come out to 260+ euros at the cheapest (checked it myself while writing this). On Wizzair, taking the 68 euro ticket in the worst case, the return trip would be 140 euro - giving a price difference of 120 euros minimum.

Reasons for support of LCCs? About half a monthly paycheck for starters...

But I doubt you'll ever find it when booking a flight. This is probably the same marketing ploy JAT uses, offering similar discounts, but when you actually contact them, you're faced with a completely different reality.

Although I agree with you that legacy carriers have their benefits, LCC's transformed the whole concept of air transport giving an opportunity to more people to have more flights, see more interesting places. After all, how many people in Croatia can spend 250 Euros just to have a weekend in Paris or London?

LCC are guilty of using this type of marketing ploy too. Here in Australia Virgin Blue offers Sydney - Melbourne (1 hour 15 min) flights for as little as A$30 but only allocate a small number of seats for this price.

Booking Via the net, Qantas turns out to be cheaper in some cases and you get a good meal plus beverages for free with Qantas.

Virgin Blue prices could go up in the high 3 hundreds for this flight and you still have to pay for a meal and beverages.

Just to add regard OU,

Im a firm believer that OU could have appealed to the Croatian Population more with better prices and be at a stage with twice as many aircraft in their fleet as they currant operate.

but,
OU seems to have a plan and are sticking to it. As long as they are making a profit, who am I to criticize?

SunAdria, Air Adriatic, Dubrovnik Airlines and the hopeful start up Dalmatian.hr will have a combined fleet which will dwarf OU the national carrier. Seeing these carries come in and OU saying they are happy to sit on 11 aircraft just does not make sense to me. Confused

Very true. But regardless of marketing, LCCs do offer, for our means, significantly lower fares, and that makes a much more important difference to the average Joe than a "free" (since you pay for it in the ticket anyway) meal and drink. The 2 hrs of ZAG-CDG or 3 of ZAG-LTN can be, for most people and especially budget travelers, pleasantly bearable with just a small, bought-on-board snack.

In view of their past financial problems, it is understandable if OU plays it safe. At this stage in the game, OU is holding back from an unsupportable rapid expansion which could throw it really back if it went wrong (read: LCCs). So far, they're sticking to increasing profits and consolidating their ground.

Despite their successes, private companies such as the above are far from united, thus far from posing a really major threat to OU. OU still has the upper hand on the scheduled int'l services, especially from ZAG, while Air Adriatic, Dubrovnik Airline and SunAdria are doing mainly charter work - which is a consequence of their smaller individual fleet sizes.

Some of them are expanding rapidly, Dubrovnik Airline up on the top, but as welcome as their success may be, it'll take more force to topple OU over. Plus, Air Adriatic has PUY (or RJK?) as it's hub, Dubrovnik Airline DBV, while OU holds ZAG and its route network - so not much friction there yet.

What will LCCs bring forward is left to be seen. If Open Skies really picks up momentum, OU may decide for a more rapid move.

EDIT: OU is playing it safe for another, more subtle reason. Croatia has a population of 4.6 million, many of which consider frequent flying a bit of a luxury. Add to that only 8 international airports (7 capable of handling medium and large aircraft) and it boils down to the fact that OU doesn't have much of a domestic market to support it if any faster expansion doesn't go as planned - and if LCCs eat up the international one.

I was just looing into Wizz Air's flights a little further from Luton and they have got a serious number of flights from there considering it is not a base for them...

From the 1st May, Luton will offer the following flights each week...

3x Weekly Flights to Split
3x Weekly Flights to Bourgas
4x Weekly Flights to Ljubljana
4x Weekly Flight to Sofia (Now Direct Flights!)
5x Weekly Flights to Poznan
9x Weekly Flights to Gdansk
1x Daily Flights to Budapest
2x Daily Flights to Warsaw
2x Daily Flights to Katowice

63 Flights a Week! (Potentially over 1.1 million pax a year!)

In addition the connecting flights to Kaunas via Warsaw.

If in a rush to reach Western Romania (Timisoara), South-East Hungary (Szeged) or North-East Serbia (Novi-Sad) from London Stanstead try RyanAir to Verona/ Brescia and then hook onto BlueAir's Verona-Brescia to Arad-ARW (service starting Feb 11) Belgrade is also in a short driving range from Arad .

un-tapped by LCCs maybe, but not by Malev, which now has 5 destinations in Romania, some flight for cost around 19 euro.

Malev.com

"Malév is permanently strengthening its presence in those European countries that are developing dynamically such as Romania, where the airline now operates to five destinations, Bucharest, Timisoara, Constanta, Cluj Napoca (with Carpatair) and from 16th January 2006, to Tirgu Mures. Within just eight months Malév launched three new routes to Romania - Constanta (30 June), Cluj Napoca (11 July), Tirgu Mures (16 January). For her excellent work in establishing these new Malév services Madalina Cretu, Malév's Country Manager in Romania received a special award."

Fly to Budapest with Wizzair, then onwards by Malev!!
