The Hungarian company Wizz Air and the Romanian one Blue Air are competing for the first place on the Romanian low cost flights market, Gandul informs. Thus, each company claims they are the leader. Meanwhile, the two “strike” by offering new holiday destinations. After the clients of traditional airways migrated, last year, to low cost companies, now the latter are battling for the first place. Alongside adding up the number of passengers, each of the two companies is trying to draw as many clients as possible by introducing new destinations. Wizz Air announced it had become the leader of the Romanian low cost market, at a 45.5 per cent market share, compared to the 43.8 per cent reported by Blue Air. The company’s commercial director, Gyorgy Abran, quoted, to back his claims, the statistic figures of the OAG independent organization for June, based on the number of take-offs and landings and on the capacity accommodated by each plane. “This year we will have a 31 per cent rise on Romanian routes and will amount to more than two million passengers,” Abran stated. The Blue Air representatives challenge, however, the calculation means used by OAG, according to which Wizz Air would rank first.
