Good to see WIZZ AIR expanding at LGW.

WIZZ currently fly from LGW to Bucharest, Budapest, Cluj-Napoca (from 31 March 2019) and now Gdansk (from 15 June 2019).

With the airlines huge network especially in Central and Eastern Europe it's anyone's guess what the next destination will be for WIZZ at LGW.

Hard to think that this route needed help from local government just to keep going back when BE ran it 1 daily on a Q400. When KLM came knocking on the door, BE dropped the route almost immediately.

No real surprise regarding British Airways pulling out of Ft Lauderdale, it was enevitable once Norwegian moved to Miami.

The route was very popular with cruise passengers sailing out of Port Everglades.

Once British Airways gains an extra B772 at Gatwick perhaps we might very well see them launching LGW-MIA!

Hainan had been dumping EDI-PEK recently as cheap as £370 return last month even if you bought the ticket a few weeks ahead only, perhaps an indication that the route is not performing well.

Perhaps an opportunity for Loganair to relocate DND flights to SEN if they bid?

https://www.eveningtelegraph.co.uk/fp/a ... nd-london/

Airlines are being invited to bid for the right to run Dundee’s flight route to London.

A new 24-month contract has been put out to tender by Dundee City Council, seeking an operator for a twice-daily weekday flight as well as a single return service to and from the capital on a Sunday.

According to the contract, London is defined as “any airport within a 60-minute rail journey from/to a London Zone 1 station and designated as London according to IATA city code”.

It means flights to London from Dundee could potentially switch from Stansted to airports such as Luton or Southend, should the winning bidder chose to redirect the route.

Tenders for consideration need to be submitted by June 26.

The invitation for airlines to provide a twice-daily connection between Dundee and London comes only a month after the Tele revealed that air links between the two cities could be set for a shake-up, after it emerged funding for the current Stansted route is only to be available until later this year.

The local authority has pledged £145,000 to support the route as part of a public service obligation (PSO) package agreed between itself, the Department for Transport, Transport Scotland and route operator Loganair.

It also comes a week after Loganair announced it would not be introducing its new fleet of planes to the Dundee to Stansted route.

Alison Henderson, chief executive of Dundee and Angus Chamber of Commerce, said the invitation for the tenders was a sign that there was a commitment to the Dundee-London route.

Ms Henderson said: “This is an important route for tourism and business, linking Dundee not only with London but hopefully with an airport that connects to other airports outwith the UK.

“Ideally we would like to see flights from Dundee to an airport that provides a central onward hub elsewhere out of the UK.

“Air travel is hugely important both for business and tourism in Dundee.

“Dundee businesses are very keen to see regular flights to London and would welcome flights to an airport hub.

“We are hoping for the right flights, to the right locations at the right price to be put in place as quickly as possible.”

Dundee City Council and airport operators Highlands and Islands Airports Limited were approached for comment but had not responded at the time of going to press.

SEN seems the most likely option. They’re not going to get the slots they want at LHR or LGW. I reckon the price of slots is too high at LCY. LTN could be an option but Loganair will already be serving from SEN so from an operational cost point of view, it’s seems the best option?

Temporary suspension between 14 January 2020 and 10 February 2020. As Virgin/Delta are launching London Gatwick to New York JFK in Summer 2020, I doubt British Airways will axe the route, as there is still some market they can get (point-to-point). Jan-Feb are the quietest months so are the ideal time for a suspension

Do you have a link to a source to confirm this? From what I've read, its not confirmed if they are coming back or not next year. That would be less of a blow to the airport if this is the case.

Interesting. Why do you think they launched MUC over FRA - isn't the latter the bigger hub?

They can make Glasgow work, the aircraft is supposed to be an A319 but in the past 3 weeks it has been A320 and A321, it's only suspended over the winter

FRA has more Longhaul destinations, but MUC has more Regional/European destinations.

Given NCL is connected to more European destinations non-stop than long haul ones, wouldn’t it be more useful for them to fly to FRA then?

Longhaul destinations don't normally work with one feeder flight a day - there's going to be a long layover one way or the other, whereas those flights with multiple departure banks, you can normally get a reasonable connection in both directions.

The complete CAA April statistics are now released. One interesting thing to note is that BRS is handling more passengers than GLA for the first time in many years.

BRS - 1,013,191 (+44% compared to April 2018)
GLA - 692,185 (-13%)

This brings the total for 2019 to 2,680,145 for BRS and 2,399,552 for GLA. Will GLA finally lose its position to BRS this year? What makes the astonishing booming in passenger volume for BRS in April?

Both false statements, all flights are scheduled to be A320. There will be the odd A319 or A321.

by738, according to FR24 there have been two A319s during the entire month, so not sure where you are getting that information! Nonetheless, it's irrelevant.

From the start of the IATA 2019/2020 Winter timetable Ural Airlines plans to commence flights between Moscow Zhukovsky Airport and London Stansted Airport.

U6745 ZIA 11.00 STN 12.00 320 x 246
U6746 STN 13.00 ZIA 19.40 320 x 246

Thanks to routes online for the update.

I hope that this route works out for Ural Airlines as the recent Pobeda Airlines flights didn't last long on Moscow Vnukovo Airport to London Stansted Airport.

Pobeda Airlines is a low cost subsidiary of the Russian flag carrier Aeroflot where as Ural Airlines have a hub at Moscow Zhukovsky Airport and they have a large network and fly to many Russian domestic destinations as well as those in the former Soviet Republics CIS so there are good connection opportunities for Ural Airlines from London.
94 Countries, 327 Destinations Worldwide, 32 Airlines, 29 Aircraft Types, 182 Airports, 335 Flights.

Looks like BHX has become cheaper for wizz. They had a few flights but BHX cost too much. With Flybe downsizing, and Thomas cook on the ropes looks like BHX is trying to secure up reliable service to the airport.

They served this route until not too long ago, seems a strange resumption when there's arguably bigger holes in Wizz's BHX network. Hopefully it works this time though!

When a LCC like wizz cuts a route or base like Prague, it’s more likely that the cost has changed than the revenue/demand. For example PRG for wizz was a pretty small base, and demand was solid, it was just the cost of PRG went up since they started operating therefore margins get narrower, may still make a small profit but if the aircraft are in need somewhere else with better profitability, the base or route will be axed.

So how is it any different to what FR is doing, which keeps expanding...I mean, they both follow the same pattern and race to drive costs to the bottom..

Not true, if anything the Wizz operation has continued to grow (albeit slowly, but steadily). It started out with a couple of flights to Budapest and Warsaw and they have since gone on to add Bucharest, Cluj Napoca, Poznan, Wroclaw, Krakow and Sofia many of which have seen both frequency and equipment upgrades. Sofia was dropped and Poznan was cut when Wizz closed the Poznan base. Poznan is now returning operating on the Wroclaw aircraft which has had it’s timings changed to accommodate the extra rotation. This winter will actually see Wizz’s biggest schedule from BHX.

"Scheduled passenger flights have returned to Carlisle Lake District Airport for the first time in more than 25 years." :bouncy:

Not earth shattering news, but Stobart Group and Loganair think they can make it work. Good luck to them.
