Low-cost airline Wizz Air suspended its flights from Sofia to Varna in November. The news confirmed for Darik CEO Christian Krastev of Bulgaria. At the time the idea of the carrier to stop flights on that route for the winter season, as during the destination is not profitable, said Krastev. It is not yet clear whether the line will be restored next spring. The prices of the company in this direction up to 20 Euro including taxes for one-way ticket for early booking.

Low cost airline Wizz Air will operate flights from Sofia to Varna at least the next several months, explained Christian Krastev:

Suspend flights for the winter season - from early November to March.

What happened? That line is not busy?

Yes, winter is less Load. Our type of aircraft are larger. It is not profitable. In spring, we will consider whether to restore or not, how many frequencies. Summer is possible to recover it again.

Do you somehow explain this to their customers, because as far as I know your site is no longer able to make reservations?

No. Why should I explain? The moment you enter the destination Varna, will show that there is no possibility for reservations. Whether you know them officially or not? We have no such practice in principle, but it's a good idea, we will consider the matter.

The company operates flights between Sofia and Varna from mid-year 2008. Krastev said that last winter line was much less busy and now have decided it stop.

The Wizz Air fares for flights between Sofia and Varna have been charged by most passengers as a bargain. The average price was moving about 60 euro for a reservation, and provided an early booking ticket for about 20 euro one way.

After the withdrawal of airline Wizz Air Sofia Vrana will be served by Bulgaria Air, whose fares are relatively high.

It interesting that they say you can't see any available flights, when if you go to the site it does show there is

All sounds good at the moment but I do wonder how long for? the big problem here is going to be the green tax which will effect all airlines its just a case of how they deal with it and where the cost ends up going s

Walsh sees his pay taking off as he lands top slot at airline

British Airways boss Willie Walsh will be handed a 12 per cent pay rise thanks to the carrier's merger with Spanish airline Iberia.
The increase is certain to infuriate unions, which have been locked in long running disputes with the airline's management.
Walsh will ascend to the position of chief executive of International Airlines Group, the company formed out of BA’s £5billion marriage with Iberia, should shareholders approve the tie-up in a vote on November 29.


The new role will see his basic pay increase from £735,000 to £825,000, while he will also be entitled to a performance-related bonus worth up to £1.65m in cash and shares. Keith Williams, who will succeed Walsh as chief executive of BA (down 1.9p to 278p), is in line for an even more substantial pay hike. He will take home a basic salary of £630,000, a 43 per cent rise on the £444,000 he earned as BA’s chief financial officer and a bonus of up to £945,000.
BA pointed out that both men had seen their pay frozen for two years, while Walsh had turned down bonuses in deferred shares for two years in a row. Both Walsh and Williams also volunteered to work for free for a month last year as the airline's financial performance floundered.

BA chairman Martin Broughton – who will be deputy chair of IAG – will take home £306,000, plus £153,000 next year as a generous reward for helping to manage the merger.Broughton courted controversy yesterday by launching a broadside against ‘completely redundant security checks at British airports. He said Britain should stop ‘kowtowing’ to American demands for security checks such as removing shoes. His controversial comments were immediately backed by Colin Matthews, the chief executive of airports operator BAA. ‘It may be simple for some people to take their shoes off, but for many of our passengers it's really uncomfortable.’

Matthews spoke as BAA reported a dramatic narrowing of losses at the airport operator, owned by Spanish construction giant Ferrovial.

Pretax losses for the nine months to the end of September were £192.6 million, compared to £784.7 million last year, helped by a 3.1 per cent increase in passenger traffic through Heathrow as business travel increased.

BAA, which also owns London's Stansted airport, also hopes to raise up to £325 million in a through a bond issue to refinance the remainder of a £465.8million pounds loan facility due in 2011.

No we see why ?

Maybe this has something to do with the BA problem

Next week’s rise in Air Passenger Duty (APD) will make foreign family holidays unaffordable for many, travel companies have warned.

APD rates increase on Monday, with those flying in better seats to long-haul destinations particularly badly hit. A couple flying premium-economy class to Australia or Argentina will face £340 in taxes – up from £220. A family of four flying economy to Florida will pay £240 in tax.

However, a loophole means travellers beginning their journeys from Highlands and Islands airports – including Inverness, Campbeltown and Wick – will not pay the tax and could save hundreds of pounds.

For everybody else the new tax will put summer plans in jeopardy and harm the economy, tour operators warn.

Trips to the Caribbean will be particularly expensive.

Colum Murray, from John Semple Travel, Glasgow, said: “It’s going to be a nightmare once people realise how much they’re paying out in tax on their holiday. They’re going to be in for a bit of a shock. It’s definitely the smaller retail businesses that are going to feel it.”

For APD purposes, the Caribbean has been put in Band C, which means passengers will be paying more to fly, for example, to Barbados, which is only an eight-hour trip, than to Los Angeles, which takes nearly 12 hours by plane.

This is because the whole of the USA has been put in Band B, where APD rates are slightly lower.

Turkey falls into Band A, while Egypt is classed as Band B. This means a family of four travelling in economy class to Turkey will pay £48 APD in comparison to £240 in APD for the same family to travel to Egypt.

Flights to Europe and Western Russia are placed in Band A, costing £12 for an economy flight and £24 for better classes.

A spokesman for BAA, which runs Edinburgh and Glasgow airports, said: “Increasing airport duty way beyond our competitors will hurt the UK economy and make it a less attractive place for people to travel through.”

A spokesperson for HM Revenue and Customs said: “The exemption for flights from the Scottish Highland and Islands takes into account the low population density of the region and the reliance upon air travel for essential communications.”

Who or what do we believe. Yesterday British Airways were telling us how much money they had lost and what caused it

Today they are telling us how much profit they have made, (see report below) and saying good-bye to Varna

29 October 2010 Last updated at 09:58 Share this pageFacebookTwitter ShareEmail Print British Airways in first profit for two years

Chief Executive Willie Walsh paid tribute to staff for the ''excellent'' progress
British Airways (BA) has reported a half-year profit of £158m ($252m), its first in two years, as the company prepares to merge with Iberia of Spain.

The stronger-than-expected results come despite the impact of cabin crew strikes and the Icelandic ash cloud.

Meanwhile, Iberia has reported a nine-month profit of 53m euros (£46m;
$74m).

Separately, it has emerged that BA boss Willie Walsh and other executives will receive substantial pay rises after the two airlines merge.

Analysts had been expecting a profit figure for BA of about £75m - half of what the airline actually made.

Revenues were up 8.4% to £4.4bn, thanks to a particularly strong 39% rise in cargo revenues, according to the airlines official release.

Costs were cut by 1.5%. The company said that cost control was something that it continued to focus on.

More data on this share price
Performance was much stronger during the latter half of the six-month reporting period.

Pre-tax profits in the three months to September - which was free of strikes and ash - were £322m.

This more than offset a loss in the previous quarter, which saw 15 days of strikes as well as the eruption of the Eyjafjallajoekull volcano in Iceland in April.

The company also suffered under European air traffic control strikes during the period, though Mr Walsh boasted that despite this, 74% of BA's Heathrow flights and 84% of its Gatwick flights still departed on time.

The half-year results mark a complete turnaround from the £292m loss that BA made during the same period in 2009, at the depth of the recession.

Pay packet

British Airways and Iberia will merge on 21 January.

Mr Walsh will become chief executive of the combined company - International Consolidated Airlines Group - and will see his basic pay rise 12% to £825,000 a year.

He will also be eligible for performance-related bonuses under the merger deal, that will be capped at twice his basic pay, or £1.65m.

Mr Walsh's colleague, BA chief financial officer Keith Williams, will see his basic pay rise 43% to £630,000 after his promotion to replace Mr Walsh as BA chief executive within the enlarged company.

Mr Williams' bonus will be capped at 1.5 times his basic salary.

APD is a bad environmental tax as there is no relation between the level of the tax and the level of emissions”

Easyjet official statement
Mr Walsh used the opportunity of the financial results release to criticise a tax rise on passengers due to kick in next week.

"
Excessive taxation puts aviation's social and economic benefits at risk,"
said the company in its press release.

Air Passenger Duty (APD) will increase by up to 55% on some long-haul flights, the company claimed.

"
Aviation supports more than 500,000 jobs in the UK and provides the transport links that are vital to the success of UK businesses in a globalised economy."


The UK government says the tax increase will better reflect the cost of carbon emissions by the airline industry.

"
We already meet our carbon costs twice over even before these increases,"
claimed BA.

On Thursday, BA's bitter rival Virgin Atlantic also criticised the tax change, claiming it would make family holidays unaffordable for many.

'Bad tax'

Easyjet also joined the bandwagon, saying that the rise, to £12 on flights within Europe, means the tax will have increased by 140% since 2007.

"
APD is a bad environmental tax as there is no relation between the level of the tax and the level of emissions,"
said the budget airline on Friday.

"
Transfer passengers joining flights departing from the UK pay no tax and those travelling on private jets remain exempt, while ordinary passengers bear the full burden of the tax."


Both parties in the coalition promised during the election to switch the duty from a passenger tax into a per-flight tax, in order to reflect the actual environmental impact of the airline industry
