Do Wizz plan to keep any aircraft or crew stationed in Ukraine overnight, after mid January, or is it only ever turns of under an hour ? I'm thinking particularly about airports other than Lviv...

Lviv and Kyiv IEV are bases, all flights to/from HRK, KBP, ODS and OZH are from other bases along with selection of flights at the 2 bases.

New Seating for the A321XLRs

This article seems to have gone under the radar...

Back in November, WizzAir revealed the new seats they have the ordered for the new A321XLRs.

It seems they are continuing with the extremely high density seating on the new longer range aircraft and will be light weight, slimline seats, which do not necessarily equate to a comfy flight for these longer flights I assume the A321XLRs will be operating.

Were you expecting Business Class or Lie Flat? Not really Wizzair style.

According to Seanm1997 on Twitter, Wizz have bought 15 daily slots at LGW from Norwegian. They will base an additional 4 aircraft there.

So, the slots that Norse need were given by Norwegian to Wizz?

Couldn't say for sure but I'd assume it's more the ex-Norwegian short-haul slots and maybe some of the later evening turns that Wizz will have secured.

The short haul slots went to EZY last year, so Iíd assume itís the long haul slots - utterly useless for a based aircraft operation

Wizz have a lot of destinations beyond the typical low cost Eastern Europe - Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Almaty.

The new BA ops will also operate at all sorts of unfavourable times so if the prices are right it will still work.

15 daily slot pairs with 4 based aircraft suggests a high proportion of short haul flying... not places which are 7 hours flying time away

I know but it was to demonstrate they have a wide choice of destinations to use the slots for. They are also reported to have said they will use aircraft from other bases in addition with Budapest being named.

Previously the mentioned routes in the article were planned. Maybe they might launch UK domestic routes or shorter ones like CRL, EIN, CGN, DTM, BVA?

Letís be realistic, all theyíre going to do is dump capacity on bucket and spade routes in an attempt to trash yields for the competition. If itís based aircraft itís going to be Malaga, Faro, Palma, a couple of Greek islands, Milan and the Canaries.

Which is a shame because there are plenty of gaping holes in the route map south of the river, such as Warsaw and most of the Balkans, that would be most useful for Gatwick.

Personally I cannot see Wizz doing domestic but who am I, as for the other routes Eastern Europe must be the main priority as people have said an awful lot of competition to Spain etc. although they are already scheduled to fly to Malaga.

I doubt BE are on any WUK radar. The map on the simply flying linked article would still be current in having strong feed to Eastern Europe.

Simply flying have no info. Itís incredibly poor as a source.

Wizz did enter the Norwegian domestic market but it didnít last long.
