What did you do then? Did you find a reasonable new connection and air fare? Once I made a self-transfer in VIE. The first flight was going to depart late, so I asked the FR staff at the gate if they could do anything. The reply was "We are a point-to-point airline". xD In VIE I was shocke...Jump to post
I do self-hubbing by myself. But the majority of passengers hasn't done it before. BUD, BER and BGY support it. But all the other European airports don't. Having a layover of 1:50h, the first flight only needs to be late 1:30h and you miss the connecting flight. With checked luggage 1 hour delay mea...Jump to post
For longer distances you can always transfer somewhere halfway. Just for passengers a direct 6:30h flight would be easier. In 2023 Wizz gonna introduce long routes with XLR. The air fares will be of course higher than the current air fares. So the customers get used to somewhat higher prices on lon...Jump to post
I think I know now, why Wizz hasn't flown longer routes than 2265 nautical miles (KTW-AUH range, 6 hour flight). Because of the maximum duty time of the pilots. In Europe pilots are allowed to fly up to 13-14 hours per day including preparation and review. In order to fly the two sections with the s...Jump to post
Aside from the fact that any new destination in South Asia means setting up new stations (which is doable of course), the fact that the UAE isn't allowing flights from India, Sri Lanka, etc. currently and continue to extend the ban may have something to do with not announcing anything there for the...Jump to post
it looks like the actual range of the A321ceo including buffer is not enough for this route for Wizz Air.
There was never a longer route than Katowice<>UAE in their network: 2270nm / 4200km
The A320ceo, A320neo and A321neo have a longer range than the A321ceo.
They also increased AUH-BEG from 2 to 3 weekly flights the other day. Alright. 3 weekly from October to March. For the Western European it's nice to have one additional weekly flight option for a one-stop connection to AUH ;) currently from Western Europe to the UAE from about 60€: https://www.kiwi...Jump to post
Could you say if there has ever been an A321ceo flying AUH/DXB/DWC and KTW?
on one of these routes:
yeah. Ryanair has it's biggest base also in London, just at STN. BUD is still the second biggest base of Wizz. Followed already by Vienna with 62 destinations and Bucharest with 61 destinations. – Any tips, hints or guesses on what 5W will do next out of AUH?

Btw during the pandemic Wizz got 29 new planes. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Wizz-Air-Holdings-Plc No transatlantic flights with the A321XLR. There is surely enough competition as US airlines also ordered the XLR. I just wonder that the CCO says, the A321XLR will be used from AUH to India. ...Jump to post
And a runway of 1.5 meters is long enough?Jump to post
Im comparison: BUD has 66 Wizz destinations.
But BUD is not the biggest base!
It's Luton with 79 destinations!
Wizz schedules from DTM 48 destinations. Not bad, I sayJump to post
Currently there may be no base profitable because of entry restrictions, lower demand and lower load factor. But that does not mean to close a base with international connections. Only if a base is not profitable after the pandemic, it might become closed. Wizz Air's first flight to Morocco was from...Jump to post
You're welcome. I just saw that St. Petersburg is still a base and OSL isn't one anymore. OSL was set up for domestic flights which did not work out. Wizz got new aircraft through the pandemic so they needed to put it somewhere :) The bases can show if they are profitable after the pandemic. For UK ...Jump to post
Anyone know what bases that were launched during covid survive to this day? How are they doing in Italy?

You convinced me with Vilnius! I remember I read that WizzAir has a critical view over banning Belavia from the EU. But Wizz surely gonna avoid the Belarus airspace for some time.
