Eastern European low-cost carrier group Wizz has unveiled plans to expand its Vilnius base in Lithuania and establish its third Ukrainian base in Lviv. The announcements follow other recent expansion announcements that will see Wizz expand its bases in Bulgaria and Macedonia.
In the Lithuanian capital Vilnius, Wizz Air will expand its fleet of A320s at the airport to three aircraft. The carrier will use the additional aircraft to launch three new routes and increase frequencies on five existing routes.
Meanwhile the group’s Ukrainian subsidiary Wizz Air Ukraine plans to base one A320 at Lviv from 30-Apr-2014. The aircraft will be used to launch five new routes from Lviv, which Wizz Air Ukraine now serves with three routes. The A320 to be based at Lviv Airport will be Wizz Air Ukraine’s fifth aircraft overall.
As American and US Airways move to close their merger in Jul-2013 and set out on a complex integration process, speculation over the status of the nine hubs comprising the backbone of the combined network was revived after a report from a US government watchdog questioned Philadelphia’s role in the combined network. Similar queries have also arisen over the status of Phoenix once integration is complete.
The network optimisation that occurs during a merger integration inevitably results in some service cuts and eliminations as unprofitable flights are culled. Southwest has been weeding out AirTran’s unviable routes for the last year (notably, without a huge amount of criticism) as it attempts to complete integration of the two carriers.
While it is natural to assume some hubs might lose prominence in the combined American-US Airways network, the reality is that during the last few years all the major American carriers have undergone network overhauls that resulted in concentrating flying at their hub strongholds, leveraging strength where they have a commanding presence. US Airways and American have notably embraced that strategy, evidenced by US Airways placing 99% of its flying at its Charlotte, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Washington National hubs while American continually touts its cornerstone strategy that entails building its network around Dallas/Fort Worth, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York.
In 2007-2008 the airlines most feared the rising cost of fuel and, especially in the US, used the expense to dramatically cut service, scale back operations, retire aircraft and reduce capacity. But the positive effects of those actions were almost immediately negated by the recession, which brought a whole new set of problems.
Mother nature is going to cost easyJet as much as GBP100 million this year, but the UK-based LCC does not expect that to prevent it from posting a healthy profit. Winter snow disruptions in 2009 and 2010 resulted in losses of approximately GBP25 million. The recent ash-related airspace shut downs are expected to cost another GBP50-75 million.
Aviation headlines in the Middle East tend to be dominated by the ambitious sixth freedom hub players (the ‘Big Three’: Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways). However, there are some major developments at the second tier full service carriers in the region, such as Oman Air, Royal Jordanian, Gulf Air and Middle East Airlines, as featured in this report. These carriers are reshaping competition in and beyond the region and are being reshaped themselves by dynamic change in the Middle East.
Union leaders expressed alarm at easyJet’s decision to stop flying from East Midlands Airport and to scale back its Luton operation, which could threatens about 250 jobs. Up to 1.5 million passengers will be effected by the plan to axe 360 flights a week.
