Flights will commence at the beginning of December 2005.
Wizz Air will launch a route from Warsaw to Kaunas on 01 December 2005. Following a similar model to their recently announced new route to Sofia, they are offering flights to Kaunas from 6 additional airports.
Wizz will offer connections to Kaunas from London (Luton), Paris (Beauvais), Stockholm (Skavsta), Dortmund, Liverpool and Malmo (Sturup). This will involve a change of aircraft at Warsaw (and collection and re-checking of baggage).
While airlines are aware that many passengers may ‘unofficially’ transfer from one flight to another, perhaps interchanging at a major hub such as London (Stansted), most of the low-cost carriers do not endorse this behaviour for cost-saving reasons. Wizz Air appear to be embracing it, and it will be interesting to see how this area of their business develops.
