Wizz Air is forced to cancel 10% of its flights in Bucharest due to night curfew enforcement

Wizz Air, the largest low cost – low fare airline in Romania and in Central and Eastern Europe has been forced to cancel 10% and reschedule 75% of its winter timetable to/from Bucharest Baneasa Airport, owing to an airport decision to change the night curfew enforcement. The restrictions mean that, with effect from 29 October, flights will not be permitted to operate between 22:00 and 06:00.
“Due to this restriction in Baneasa Airport, we have been forced to reschedule 75% and cancel 10% of our winter flights. According to our estimates, the airport will lose some 40.000 departing Wizz Air passengers in the winter season. The new restriction will affect Wizz Air passengers most, as we have the greatest passenger traffic in Baneasa and in Romania. Wizz Air is one of the few companies that continues to grow and invest in Romania, but that strategy will need to be reconsidered given the restrictions in Baneasa airport and plans to further restrict operations next year” - said György Abrán, Chief Commercial Officer of Wizz Air.
The numbers of services to London Luton and Madrid have been reduced and services to Larnaca and Alicante have been suspended for the winter season.
All Wizz Air passengers will be notified about the new schedule by e-mail or by telephone, according to the contact details they have entered in their reservation. Affected passengers will have the possibility to rebook their flights, use the equivalent amount on other Wizz Air flights/services or get a refund.
Wizz Air is disappointed that such a large number of customers will suffer changes in their travel plans at late notice due to this restriction and will do its best to minimize the inconveniences caused by the airport’s restrictions.

Wizz Air cuts back its Cluj operations and moves flights to Tirgu Mures

Wizz Air, the largest low fare - low cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe announced at press conferences today that it would reduce capacity by 26% at Cluj-Napoca Airport. The affected capacity would be accommodated at Tirgu Mures Transylvania Airport.
The decision follows the airline's recent dispute with Cluj Airport management who opened discussions on the existing contract and announced the introduction of new additional airport charges. The airline stated clearly that such new conditions would result in scaling back its operations in Cluj and reallocate capacity in favor of Tirgu Mures.
Subsequently, Wizz Air will reduce its Cluj operating base by one Airbus A320 to two aircraft and move it to Tirgu Mures Transylvania Airport to effectively advance the start of the airline's 15th base to the 5th of May from the earlier announced 16th of June.

Destinations affected in Cluj Frequency /week Change
Dortmund 5 Cancelled
Rome Fiumicino 5 Cancelled
Weeze Dusseldorf 2 Cancelled
London Luton 7 -1

Should an airport increase charges for whatever reasons we will react to it in order to protect our travelers from higher costs and higher fares.” - said John Stephenson, Executive Vice President of Wizz Air. "It is hard to understand why Cluj Airport increases charges in the middle of the economic crisis in Romania losing a quarter of a million passengers and putting hundreds of jobs in the region on jeopardy." - he added.

An ultra low cost carrier always enjoys a ‘growth premium’ compared to the balance of the airline sector no matter whether the industry is in good times or facing challenges.” – said József Váradi, Chief Executive Officer of Wizz Air. “Throughout our history we have demonstrated how effectively we can address challenges while continuing to build market leadership in our home territory in Central and Eastern Europe. That approach to the business remains critical to the success going forward especially in light of the troubled European operating market conditions as a result of the state of the European economies and fiscal policies as well as the impacts of disruptive regulatory measures.” – he added.
