They need /$/Ł. Losing what little credibility they have left does not seem to be an issue. EASA let them do it so why not.

When do Wizz usually release their winter schedules?

Not much available for this winter as yet

pabely 3rd Mar 2022 14:51

Last year it was on 18th Feb so it looks late!

Possibly unsure of how many hulls they will have in their fleet by October.

Don't think this has been printed here.

Wizz Air offers 100,000 free flights to refugees from Ukraine and says four planes are stuck in the country (inews.co.uk)

Another 14 routes from Vienna are cancelled (after the 12 chopped three months ago).

Vienna was bound to be a blood bath with Ryanair, Wizz and Austrian all in the running,
That was obvious the day Wizz and RYR announced they were going to go head to head against each other on multiple routes.

A cynic might say Wizz have issued a press release so as to look good to media... but are actually still happy to take money from credit cards for something they appear to say they are not doing

Is there something I am missing here, so as to square the circle ?

Minus 26 routes from Vienna but the new Abu Dhabi-Mattala Rajapaksa flight will make up for the loss.

Meanwhile two 2 addition al Ryanair aircraft in Vienna (+15 routes). Obvious who is winning that one at the moment.

pabely 10th Mar 2022 23:39

The latest load factors, Feb 2022 shows across the group WZZ were 91% whereas RYR was 88% which would imply more bums on seats. I know that doesn't mean profits but if Vienna is weak then it makes sense moving aircraft to more profitable markets. Was not Austria one of the very last EU counties to pull back from travel restrictions due to covid? Anyhow I can't see Austria being a particularly busy Inbound or Outbound destination currently. I'm sure RYR were offered a great deal, they do not go anywhere without a gift of a deal from the airport..

Malta subsidiary

Anyone able to give a rough estimate of the potential tax saving by putting maybe 30% of its UK/Hungarian fleet into a Malta-domiciled company ?

LTNman 17th May 2022 17:07

I doubt Wizz could put any of its U.K. based aircraft into a Malta based company.

pabely 17th May 2022 18:38

Malta Air (Ryanair) Max 9H-VUA started it's working day today from STN so I assume no issue having Maltese registered aircraft.
French Law have a good article about benefits of registration with 9H-

There will be for Wizz UK if they want to meet their UK licence obligations. The same issue as Ryanair had with Ryanair UK

pabely 17th May 2022 19:30

Ryanair UK aircraft tend to fly to non EU destinations, example Morocco whilst being based in UK. Perhaps Wizz Air UK are looking at such routes from UK eg Egypt ?
Then the EU routes could use Maltese AOC with resulting tax benefits.

No - 9H-VUA actually began its day in BGY. (Not wanting to detract from the WZZ thread but the point may be relevant.)
