They used to have a good relationship with Luton with it being it's No1 diversion preference if problems at LHR but that was the days b4 CAT3B but even if there was money to be made, what would that add to the pax numbers to push it above 18/19M? Didn't Luton have Netherlines, I think at one point, were they owned by KLM?

Apart from the previously discussed Ljubljana and Verona, the following routes will not be operated by Wizz over the winter season:
Bari, Catania, Tallin, Turku
I don't know if the routes will return for summer 2020 or not

The difference between Tromso and Verona I think was yield. As I said in a previous post some Tromso flights are already sold out and some tour companies seem to be block booking seats on their Northern Lights holidays. Also Stavanger and Moscow start soon as well.

Bari and Catania I assume are more slanted to summer leisure routes, would seem odd to operate year round when you could be making more money from flights to the Nordics for the Northern Lights, or more high yielding winter focused destinations.

Various cancellations today due to the french ATC problem this morning.
Although the Airport website says the departures are cancelled due to “Protect OTP
Never seen this put into the public domain before- could lead to customers copying the web page and using it for future claims.

When I first read that I thought Protect Bucharest! Not On-Time Performance ;-) The Arrivals does state French ATC which pax might relate to though!

3rd multi story for LLAL to be located next to the DART at Parkway but it is meant to be for offices parking. Heard of nothing else but then these plans are getting on a bit.

Dont know if this has been shown before..( you might have to click on the link)
Note the large MSCP next to Parkway!!
Also there is an interesting article in the September edition of New Civil Engineer about the DART and the challenges in building it- sorry no link.
Coordinating seven separate sites at the same time.The viaduct section only being possible due to an agreement with the Newspaper site to use their land for access.
Problems associated with the tunnel under the taxiway and unknown cables, fears of shutting the Airport down if they cut through critical services.
Evidently the Gateway bridge weighs 1,000t and can only be raised into position with certain cranes due to the proximity of the 08 threshold if in use.

The video shows 4 multi-stories around Parkway. The existing one, a new one next to it on the same side of the tracks. The one I highlighted the other day for office parking and another one next to the newspaper printers by the Gateway bridge.

Just noticed the Southbound A1081 is closed overnight on the 16th Sept, does that mean the DART bridge is on the move?
Is it ready to go?

No not yet. One side has yet to have any concrete poured for the track. Also the ski slope has yet to be attached.

Oh dear, not a very good piece of journalism I am afraid. Got to mention Stavanger and Oslo commencing on Monday with Castellon on 1 December operated by Wizz. Plus Fly Bosnia also commencing flights shortly. It grates me personally as I was production manager of a magazine with a similar name for many years and it was drummed into into us by the boss to check and recheck your facts. We all make mistakes but come on 3.1 million in a month!

Szczytno is another name for Olsztyn in North East Poland which Wizz will operate twice weekly through the winter with three weekly flights over the Christmas and New Year period.

Is there any logic which flights are W9 and W6? Are W6 all flights on aircraft based overseas and visa versa for W9?

W9 are usually UK based frames, but a quick search using FR24 shows the odd W6 flight as well. Maybe will become more logical once more G-WUK. come online once Luton can handle the parking overnight in a few years.
