Cake of the Week: Wizz Air’s Budapest to
Displaying the cake celebrating Wizz Air’s new route from Budapest to Dortmund were Patrick Bohl, Budapest Airport’s Head of Airline Development; Balázs Varro, Wizz Air’s Consumer Communications Manager; Péter Domian, First Officer; Kirstin Wulczyn, Wizz Air’s Corporate Communications Manager; and Captain Ferenc Mester. The new route replaces Weeze services and competes with easyJet.
- Wizz Air moved one of the German routes operated out of its home base in Budapest (BUD), the base analysed this week, on 13 January. The Central and Eastern European ultra low-cost carrier suspended its route to Weeze and now instead serves Dortmund (DTM) with its 180-seat A320s; initially twice-weekly, but increasing to three times a week at the start of the summer scheduling season. Competition comes from easyJet, which has operated the route since 2004, currently with three times a week.
