Thanks for your replies about W6's cut routes.

Gatwick

Next airport in London! WizzAir will fly to London Gatwick from Katowice! The first flight is said to be 31th January 2008. It is the third London airport that WizzAir will be flying to from Katowice. Flights will be daily (in the evening). So from Katowice WizzAir will be operating 2x daily LTN (except Saturday evening), daily STN and daily LGW..

Anyone know how well, in terms of load factors the new wizzair routes to/from Coventry and Durham Tees Valley airport are doing? I have heard the new Bournemouth routes seem to be performing really well.

Thanks

Not got any precise figures to hand yet for the month of July for Coventry (route started on 13th July).

However, as a rough estimate, when looking on the wizzair site for the CVT-KTW flights, there are very very few times when more than 20 seats can be booked.

Therefore implying a booked load factor of above 85%, indeed this does backs up the comment made by Coventry Airport Managing director, Mr Chris Orphanou, that loads on the CVT-KTW-CVT route were over 85%.

Just as an aside, this route, and hopefully more CVT Wizzair routes to come (if any Wizzair people might be reading...), could help Coventry Airport appeal the terminal refusal decision...one of the reasons given for refusal was the probability that public transport would not be used much. Upon my return from Katowice a couple of weeks ago, approximately 40% of the passengers on the flight (the flight contained about 160 passengers) used the bus to transport them from the airport.

Unfortunately I do not have any indication about the loads from MME

SeamusCVT,

The reason so many people arriving from KTW use the bus is because they're Polish nationals arriving on a one-way ticket to work in the UK.

I've worked the Polish flights at BHX and CVT and I'd say that about 90-95% of the inbound pax are Poles/Slovaks.

Coventry - Katowice carried 2525 passengers in the start up (part) month of July (CAA figures) which I reckon is a load factor of just under 88%. So they must have good loads both ways.

All the delays take place because on plane is out of order. It is said to be because in Warsaw airport staff destroyed the plane by the stairs. There is also an option that 4 birdes flew into the engine while landing. Lack of one airplane causes these delays. What is more Girona filghts to Katowice have been cancelled untill the plane will be in service again.

The problems also affected some flights yesterday.
Despite the Bournemouth Airport website showing the Wizzair flight as cancelled it did in fact operate to and from Katowice using the BOH based Titan B733

They are part owned by Indigo Partners, a US investment house. They have money to burn.

Financial websites are saying they've ordered an additional 50 A320s today.

That will make them a pretty substantial airline.

50 + 25 options.

Takes them up to over 100 aircraft by 2016 if the options are exercised.
