Hm and for all these airports it's unlikely that they expand the capacity?
I mean not only in the peak times of the day. LCCs can use a less demanded departure and arrival time.
Tuzla increased to 700.000 in May 2019. https://www.exyuaviation.com/2019/04/tu ... l.html?m=1
And in March 2021 they expand againhttps://www.fena.news/bih/business-and- ... expansion/
Luton wants to increase from 18mio to 32mio with one runwayhttps://aeronauticsonline.com/london-lu ... expansion/
In 2020 BUD finished a capacity expansionhttps://www.internationalairportreview. ... 0-million/
STN just got granted an increase by 8mio to 43mio. FR should be happy https://www.itv.com/news/anglia/2021-05 ... ers-a-year
Southwest has 736 aircraft now and they won't have enough for 2022 ^^https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.busine ... 21-6%3famp
Personally I could see them reach 500 planes at some point but only if they keep on expanding to new markets beyond Europe. There are still many markets where they could expand.
I think so, too. Wizz said they want an AOC in Balkan and former Sovjet countries. Which could it be?
Ukraine is set.
Bulgaria, Romania and the Baltics are already in the EU, which has an Open Skies agreement with several countries surrounding the EU.
Kazakhstan has already FlyArystan. The East European Wizz destinations can be reached by 6 hour flights from Almaty or Nur-Sultan. Becomes more likely with the XLR.
Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan may not be developed enough.
Serbia has already Air Serbia, but could still be possible.
Wizz has a quite big presence in Georgia's Kutaisi already
Albania, North Macedonia, Bosnia & Herzegovina – could be.
Montenegro and Kosovo might not have enough inhabitants.
In Yerevan they could go into competition with Air Arabia again ^^ - like in Abu Dhabihttps://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news ... in-armenia
