You could bet on Ryanair to launch the same routes from Dublin if Wizzair did start these routes from Dublin regardless of the DAA charges and 10 travel Tax.
Its called protecting your back side!!!! something MOL will never admit too.

Vilnius ?

Rumours circulating around Wizz and Vilnius (VNO)...
Could mean new LTN flights, as Wizz has a strong base
there but IIRC is not present at LTN and LGW.

---------
April next year in Vilnius, Hungary, fly low cost company Wizz Air.
News portal lrytas.lt data Vilnius International Airport (VIA) has signed a partnership agreement on Friday. "Wizz Air fly to eight destinations in Europe. VIA on the news so far does not speak. According to sources, the portal of Hungary, the company would not much competition in Riga has altitude flight companies. Meanwhile, negotiations with other low-cost Irish company Ryanair stuck. A few months to promote plans for flights to Vilnius and establishing the base, it failed because the Irish unduly disadvantaged. Fulfillment of them could have been the dissatisfaction of other carriers. Ryanair flying from Kaunas, and last year it established the base. In Vilnius, Lithuanian company bankruptcies Star1 Airlines aircraft currently flying 17 destinations.

It was dropped at the end of September but it is due to resume next summer but Wixzz havn't put 2011 on sale yet.

It used to be year round.

VNO base

Soon official.
Routes now bookable, LTN starts 17th April 2011, 5 weekly. This is a 6:30 departure from VNO, so must be a based or overnight aircraft. I'd expect BT to go into attack mode now, so let's see how far they get.

It will be the next base of Wizz.

Knees trembling....

"I'd expect BT to go into attack mode now, so let's see how far they get."

Why would Wizz be worried about Air Baltic?

In VNO, yes. VNO is still a BT base, and they could suddenly move aircraft back there, go 7+/week to LGW and other places and take a lot of business away from Wizz. They've done that before. FR at KUN will also give them a hard time. But sure, I do wish them luck ! Note Wizz added no German destination, which on short-notice seems clever as there is the new air-tax, but then in May 2011, the German job market will open to the Eastern European countries which joined in 2004, which will add traffic. The wealthiest part of Germany is south-west and south (FKB and FMM come to mind). FR hasn't cut KUN and RIX from HHN, they know why. Thanks Wizz though, also for sticking to HHN !

I don't think Wizz will be too worried about Air Baltic. They are more than capable of holding their own against Ryanair so an on-off Air Baltic VNO operation shouldn't be too much more than an irritant for them. Likewise for FR at KUN

Do you mean our failure on the regularly flown RIX-LTN route? Which every time I've flown it as Captain has always had 160+ passengers?

Let's face it, Wizz didn't open a base in RIX for reasons that we just don't know. It most probably wasn't all about BT's presence though.

Wizz is a business, not a charity. If the maths don't add up, or there's better opportunities elsewhere, we will go after them and not waste resources where they're not best utilised.

Wizz had to cancel Riga-Turku wich airBaltic still flies and Riga-Oslo Torp is rumored to be discontinued after winter season. So there will be only one route left to Luton. And I do not see Wizz opening any new routes from Riga which they claimed to do later when they started flying there.
