Losses for Luton airlines

Wizz is the latest Luton Airport airline to announce massive losses.  The London Stock Market listed but Hungarian-based carrier said in a statement that the figure up to the end of March could exceed €590m.

The Ryanair negative sum is €850m, this for an airline that is four times as large.  The third major Luton low-cost operator, easyJet, posted a mammoth loss of more than £1.6m

Despite these appalling figures Wizz Air UK presses on and from 22 June, will operate flights twice weekly to the popular Mediterranean hotspot of Antalya in Turkey, and from 22 September, flights will commence three times a week to the historic Polish city of Rzeszow. With the addition of these new destinations, Wizz Air will now operate a total of 74 routes from its Luton base.
