Wizz Air expands at Warsaw

Following the earlier announcement that Wizz would launch a new route from Warsaw to Kaunas, they will also launch routes from Warsaw to Dortmund and Budapest.

Flights will commence at the beginning of December 2005.

Wizz Air moves in on Kaunas

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.
