The next delivery is in May 2007 , I think it`s a A319 and in June another A320 joins the fleet.

Somewhat unexpectedly Wizzair ends its route from Luton to Ljubljana Brnik. The last flight will be on 25th of February, officially the route did not meet carrier's expectations.

No surprise, it was never going to bother Easyjet and Adria, who both offered daily flights. A three times weekly(at best) service was hardly going to make inroads into well established quality services.

Next base in POZ/EPPO?

There are strong suggestions that Wizzair will be revealing the location of its next Polish base very soon. Anyway - and that is official - the CEO Jozsef Varadi will hold a press conference next Monday, June 18th, in Poznan.

Question is: New base or just 1-2 new routes? POZ-DTM is new and is already book-able. From the very few times (4 or 5 legs) I used the LTN-POZ resp POZ-LTN the loads were not that good so that a new base was most logical...

Increasing evidence that the Polish traffic to the UK and Ireland has reached saturation point.

LTN-POZ currently has five weekly flights, carried 7824 pax in April, increasing to daily from 7 July. From Oct, the route will only drop to six weekly, so the route seems to be doing ok now.

Just reading this thread last night i saw that someone wrote that the Luton - Ljubljana flight has stoped, and i am meant to be flying to there in August.

Problem is Wizzair never told us it was closed and when we phoned them they said they they were only going to tell us 3 weeks before the flight
i have had this before and the airline (Air Berlin) told us when the route closed, and we were able to get on a new flight, now i have had to go to treiste in Italy to get to Slovenia with ryanair.

but if i didn't look at this site i don't think i would have ever known and would have gone to the airport without knowing

This is very poor service from Wizzair and i shall never fly with them again

You might prefer EZY, nevertheless RYR DOES FLY TO SLOVENIA as well and even in August ticket prices start from 4.99 GBP (+ fees & charges) one way
11:10 London Stansted (STN)
14:30 Maribor (MBX) 3xweek
Maribor is a nice place in Slovenia, not so far from LJU.

Thx for the freqs!

Am I counting correctly when:
POZ:1
GDN:2
SOF:1
BBU:1
KTW:4
BUD:3
WAW:2

?
Total of fourteen (14)

According to Wikipedia Wizz air have 13 machines: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wizzair
Question is if the plane in POZ is counted in there!?
