Wizz Air opened its 14th base in Vilnius, Lithuania, on 16-Apr-2011. Wizz Air’s expansion comes as Ryanair also expands in the Lithuanian market, with six new routes to be launched to/from Vilnius in May-2011. The entry of two of Europe’s largest LCCs has resulted in airBaltic downsizing its presence at Vilnius “due to crowding” in the market. Vilnius remains the second-busiest airport in the Baltic region, behind Riga International Airport.
Estonian Air’s Chairman, Joakim Helenius, has indicated the carrier plans to develop a new route plan using Vilnius (Lithuania) and airports in Poland as layover points for services into western Europe. The carrier has already trialled Tallinn-Vilnius-Amsterdam services, achieving average load factors of 83%, including a record 90% average in Jul-2010. Using the scheme will allow the carrier to operate daily services to Paris, London, Milan, Rome and other western European routes. Some profitable direct services, such as Moscow, Brussels and Copenhagen will be retained. Estonian Air hopes to announce further details of the strategy in early Feb-2011.
Latvian flag carrier and dominant regional airline airBaltic has announced plans to serve more destinations over the forthcoming northern winter and to offer additional flights to improve connections for travellers flying via northern hub Riga to/from more than 70 destinations in Europe, CIS and the Middle East. Between them, Riga Airport and airBaltic threaten to become a major force not only in the small Baltic States but in Scandinavia, Russia and the CIS states, the Middle East and further a-field. AirBaltic already carries over 60% of all passenger traffic at Riga.
The European Parliament in mid-Jan-08 adopted a Directive to set common (and therefore, hopefully more transparent) principles for calculating airport passenger taxes, to try to prevent any abuse of a dominant position in the market by individual airports.
