I do not know but it would be sound business sense to think both of these.

A few days after Ryanair anounced their ATH expansion. There will be lots of overcapacity on overlaping routes.

Wizzair UK is an interesting concept for brexit no deal. Obviously convinced the market is there to stay...

Wizzair will have both a European and UK AOC soon.

And with a UK AOC am I correct in saying Wizz can apply for traffic rights between the UK and Russia?

Luton to Moscow?

I suppose they could, but why would anyone want to do it? Been tried.

The world cup doesn't last long enough to make it sensible for any airline to get involved in Russian bureaucracy; it's hard enough to run international buses there!

Wizz Air already flies to and from Russia. So, clearly they know what is involved with "Russian bureaucracy" which, by the way, isn't as scary as Sky News and the like would have you believe.

Wizz could easily run a scheduled service to Russia for 3 months from LTN. This would certainly be a gold mine.

Wouldn't Wizz need to be granted traffic rights to Russia from the UK? Aren't there nominated airports?

Rather than being needlessly rude and arrogant, why don't you explain what "some people just don't get" so we can all get it?

I would suggest Wizz have got better fish to fry than Luton-Moscow.

The airline has officially applied for its UK AOC. If granted it will base several UK registered aircraft at Luton from March 2018 employing over 100 staff. Full details on the Wizzair website.

I wonder if these will be additional, or if they will be used to replace outbased aircraft. The present morning influx into Luton of up to 15 aircraft from Eastern Europe is convenient for Wizz as it takes advantage of the time difference between UK time and CET.
I wonder too if a UK base and AOC will herald a change in strategy to link UK with non-Central European destinations.

Cullum Paterson..
I just stated in my first that some don`t seem to get it with all the issues that would surround even requesting the authority to fly UK-Moscow or Russia as you state. You realise do you that only two Russian Cities are to any degree "open" to normal western visitors.
I then gave you details of 3 other posters with a view which would help to answer your first question to me which you chose to ignore but then launch a yet further personal comment...
Just answer the views & statements matey, being the way you are doesn't further the cause.
To give you a chance to educate would you perhaps care to illuminate the forum the precepts behind your statement "Russian bureaucracy which by the way,isn`t as scary as Sky News & the like would have you believe".
