Wizz Air has continued to reduce frequencies across its bases for the upcoming 2024/25 winter season, which begins on October 27, as the carrier’s A320neo-family fleet undergoes inspections due to manufacturing issues with engines. The matter has resulted in Wizz Air currently having over forty of its aircraft grounded. The airline has modified its winter operations which will see a reduction in frequencies on nine routes out of Skopje compared to its initially planned schedule from earlier this month, with Belgrade seeing a reduction on six routes. However, the airline has also decided to boost services on select destinations, including three out of Skopje and four out of Belgrade.

Wizz Air has reduced frequencies on its initial plan on flights from Skopje to Charleroi and Eindhoven from five weekly to four, Berlin from five to three, Cologne, Milan, and Hamburg from four to three, Hahn and Bologna from three to two, and Malta from the initially planned four weekly rotations to three weekly. As previously reported, the airline has discontinued ticket sales for the winter on services from the Macedonian capital to Bremen, Copenhagen, and Stockholm Skavsta. On the other hand, services to Nuremberg will increase from two to three weekly, Malmo from three to five weekly, and London Luton will grow from three to four weekly flights.
In Belgrade, the low cost carrier will reduce frequencies on its initial plan on flights to Beauvais, Barcelona, Berlin and Eindhoven from five weekly rotations to four, as well as to Bergamo from four weekly rotations to three. However, it will increase service to Dortmund from three to four weekly, as well as to Gothenburg, Malmo and, Stockholm Skavsta from two to three weekly rotations. Further changes remain likely. Wizz Air previously told EX-YU Aviation News it plans to return to growing its frequencies and network out of both its Skopje and Belgrade bases from the summer of 2025, despite engine issues expected to dog the airline for another two years.
