  • Read more 16APR2014: Germany's Lübeck Airport facing uncertain future
    Ryanair (FR, Dublin Int'l) and Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) could be forced to abandon their Lübeck, Germany operations following reports the airport is now facing serious viability problems. Germany's NDR says Egyptian investor Mohamad Rady Amar has sold his shares in logistics and project management firm, 3Y Logistic und Projektbetreuung GmbH, which is responsible for running the facility. Amar is also alleged to have "disappeared".

    3Y's parent firm, Yasmina Flughafenmanagement GmbH, itself is also facing serious funding problems in light of lingering debts and a poor credit rating.

    The fallout comes after Amar was dismissed from the post of Managing Director of the airport following a decision taken during a meeting on March 31. Berlin businessman Adam Wagner has been appointed the new Managing Director, said a Lübeck court spokeswoman.

    Amar bought the airport for the symbolic sum of EUR1 in late 2012 promising to bring in over EUR20million of foreign investment to the airport. Among the conditions of the sale was Amar assumption of the airport's accumulated debt of almost EUR40million. NDR claims none of the promises were fulfilled.

    Lübeck Airport is a minor international airport located 54km northeast of Hamburg.
  • Read more 09APR2014: Wizz Air Ukraine scales back capacity as demand for travel wanes
    Wizz Air Ukraine (WU, Kiev Zhulyany) has returned one of its four A320-200s, UR-WUD (cn 5660), to parent Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) as demand for travel to Ukraine continues to decline.

    As a result of the reduced capacity, Wizz Air Ukraine's chairman Ákos Bús said the LCC will base two aircraft at Kiev Zhulyany and the other at Lvov in preparation for the upcoming summer season.

    Ukraine is currently in the throes of severe civil unrest following the recent annexation of the Crimean peninsula by Russia.
  • Read more 03APR2014: Wizz Air slashes Belgrade flights following service charge hike
    Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) will slash its Belgrade operations by half after the airport's operator, Aerodrom “Beograd - Nikola Tesla” P.E., hiked service charges by 40 per cent. Among the routes affected are Oslo Torp and Brussels Charleroi whose services will be axed from May 6 onwards.

    Executive Vice President, John Stephenson, lamented the move stating that the fee increase would benefit carriers like Air Serbia (JU, Belgrade) at the expense of the Serbian travelling public as well as tourists.

    "As one of the most expensive airports in Europe it should incentivise low cost air travel instead of unfairly protecting high fare wannabe monopolist Etihad Airways (EY, Abu Dhabi Int'l)/Air Serbia. Wizz Air was willing to grow traffic and low fare services in Serbia, but regrettably we now must take one of the two Belgrade-based Airbus A320 to Latvia where low cost flights are welcomed and where a vision for passenger growth exists. The loss of half of our Belgrade capacity is reversible if Belgrade Airport reduces costs and competes with other, cheaper airports in the region,” he said.

    The Hungarian LCC also warned that remaining services to Basle/Mulhouse/Freiburg, Dortmund, Eindhoven, Gothenburg City, Larnaca, London Luton, Malmö, Memmingen, Paris Beauvais and Stockholm Skavsta will also see their frequencies reduced.

    Wizz Air designated the Serbian capital a base in 2010.

From Turkey's Onur Air: cn 1482 and 1509.

  • Read more 23MAR2014: Wizz Air to start Riga base operations from mid-June
    Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) will establish a base in Riga using one A320-200 effective June 19. To mark the occasion, the Hungarian LCC will launch new flights to Barcelona El Prat, Doncaster/Sheffield, Dortmund, and Paris Beauvais while boosting existing frequencies to Oslo Torp and London Luton.

    At a press conference held in Riga last week, József Váradi, Wizz Air’s CEO said: "[Our] announcement underlines Wizz Air’s commitment to Latvia. We started our operations in Riga just 4 years ago and already carried 200,000 passengers in 2013. The new Riga base will not only bring a significant capital investment, but also create a number of local jobs with Wizz Air and our local business partners. Latvia is becoming our 10th country where we have established base operations.”

    Wizzair counts Vilnius as its other Baltic base.
