Wizz Air are starting a thrice-weekly Doncaster Sheffield to Gdansk service in July 2007.

Services from Liverpool to both Gdansk and Katowice are being increased from 3 to 5 flights a week.

larshakan -

EGS (Egilstadir) is the largest town in Eastern Iceland. Wizz are running once weekly overnight Sat/Sun flights to/from Katowice.

But I don't know why. (Polish emigres or trips to see reindeer?)

WZZ expects to be carrying around 2.5m annual pax through Luton by Summer 2007 with a number of new routes planned for next year.

A little bird told me today that Durham Tees Valley, as the next UK destination, is to be announced soon? Anyone know any more?

The purpose of this weekly flight is to exchange the polish workers (blue-collar mostly), who are building aluminium plant somewhere in Iceland, I don't know exactly where.

I don't think that there is much chance of anything happening at EMA now that they have announced Coventry, but I have always thought that Wizzair could do well with an EMA to Katowice, Warsaw or Gdansk, because I can't see FR starting these destinations.

Wizzair aren't interested in EMA due to large Ryanair base.

Has not stopped either airline at the even larger Ryanair base at Liverpool or indeed Luton.

Just look at the shareholders of both Ryanair and Wizz, any of them look familiar? So yes they will work against each other but yes they will line each others pockets.

SAM - Polish routes are very strong performers from EMA. FR have WW well within their sights down at BHX and you can be sure they will give them a good pounding. Likewise they will not let Wizzair get the upper hand from either CVT or DSA. Both Gdansk and Warsaw are both destinations FR fly in to - therefore keep your ears open for future FR expansion from EMA to Poland.

Route map

In the last week or so Wizz Air have put a new route map on their website. No new destinations or routes, but more countries in Eastern Europe are now visible.

Possibly Wizz Air will announce new routes soon to one / some of these countries?

New countries on the map include:
Ukraine
Finland
Turkey
The Baltics
Russia
North Africa

It could be very interesting indeed. In fact Finland is so underserved by low-cost carriers that anything new will be received very well. Look at Ryanair's load factors to London or Frankfurt-Hahn! Unfortunately FR doesn't want to see the opportunities that could be created if they decided to make ANY links further to the Central and especially SOUTHERN Europe. People in Finland do miss a few sunny days, in particular during the autumn and winter months. ANYTHING counts. For many of us even low-season breaks are very attractive.
So, if RYR really doesn't want to start a few routes more, Wizz is welcome as well

Ljubljana expansion

Someone editing Wikipedia seems to think (know?) that Wizzair plan to shortly introduce:

Ljubljana - Dortmund
Ljubljana - Malmo

There was a rumour that Wizz Air were looking at CWL to start some polish routes, but nothing seems to have come about so far.
