Wizz continues to be a hit at DSA, 38 departures weekly at its peak next summer plus some A321 services. Katowice and the new Krakow service running concurrently is quite impressive. I know Lviv was discussed years ago, so with Wizz Ukraine restarting it may happen.

Bucharest 3xweekly
Budapest 3xweekly
Cluj 3xweekly
Debrecen 2xweekly
Gdansk 4xweekly (5xweekly during summer)
Katowice 6xweekly (Daily during summer)
Krakow 3xweekly
Poznan 3xweekly
Riga 3xweekly
Vilnius 2xweekly
Warsaw 3xweekly (4xweekly during summer)

On top of the above Wizz are now basing another A321 in Bucharest so that will be going from 3 to 5xweekly.

If Brexit wasn't happening then Wizz would continue to exand but after Brexit and the ending of free movement how sustainable is their network from DSA and other UK airports?

Well given that half of the offerings are routed to previously unserved destinations that the airport was seeking for anyone to take ' city breaks ' or business visits
The rest I think it's safe to say that the migrant population will be staying as part of the Brexit deal protects the right to remain in whatever country after Brexit .
I doubt the Airline that had had its tough times financially would open new routes if it didn't think they could fill a large Airbus .
Besides one route is going to be an A321 and from 3x weekly to five X weekly but with my illness affecting my memory I cannot recall which route .
However I'd hope to see the mainstream Irlinez buy up the Airbus A220-100/300 on routes that don't quite fill the Airbus 320/21 etc

Brexit or not, the usual pattern when new members join is for migration to increase as people from the new members look to increase their income by moving and then for it to decrease as living standards increase "back home" - this pattern has been followed by all accessions back to Spain and Portugal. The relative value of the pound and the Euro also has an impact.

No. TUI have operated them on winter charters to the Caribbean for the past few years. Infact one was in just a few weeks ago from Malaga too.

From what I have seen/been told, all the Flybe routes are doing well - some for the best loads on the Flybe network. What happens moving forward with their takeover however remains to be seen....

If the routes have been performing well, DSA will hopefully still feature in the plans of the rebranded FlyBe

Air Cargo News reporting Cargologicair are to start flights from DSA. This coupled with the continued increase in Nairobi widebody cargo flights will keep a good stream of non EU business at DSA..

Should be in the next week.

One route should be IAH-DSA-FRA-DWC-HKG other should be ORD-DSA-SVO-HKG or some variation.

Thank you for the info/update.
Their press release says it's to be a Hub.
We might finally have struck lucky if it was at least one based 747. But if reckon on more ..

Lazy / incompetent journalists (delete which not applicable!) often use the word "hub" to describe anything but - often spokes. Great news for DSA though, and right under the noses of the country's principal cargo airport - EMA. One in the eye for MAG!

Agreed , there was a poster on the EMA forum admitting and also bemoaning how DSA ( how one can say this about an airport having one dual carriageway and a a motorway ( though sadly a section famous for all the wrong reasons ), anyway he said DSA Is better connected ( maybe it is with the proposed rail terminal), I mean the new ' HS2 ' goes right under the Airport terminal at EMA. How they didn't secure a subterranean rail stop is beyond me .

But I digress , anyway the poster having praised DSA he said it had a better catchment than EMA but kept ' Poaching , Eg TUI, I think he meant 'Lomghaul' , from under the airport's nose.

It would be nice for a ' standard carrier ' like a loco to serve DSA, plus a few Niche routes .
And I understand reading the latest ' Routes shop ' DSA is still chasing ABZ and Dubai.
( The latter easily now servable by Wizzair ).

But as they say onwards and upwards , I'm.still hoping we are getting a ' Based aircraft ,that article was more of a press release.'.
