22 February 2016 / by OAG


In our latest report, OAG explores drivers of growth in Eastern Europe.

Download our latest report today to see how the region is experiencing strong growth, with carriers adding 9% more seats this February versus last year once the effect of the leap year in February 2016 is stripped out.

Discover how LCCs, and in particular Ryanair and Wizz Air are at the forefront of this growth, operating the majority of capacity in Hungary, Poland and Romania, and collectively adding over 200,000 extra seats compared to last year. Average LCC market share is 50% across the top 5 countries in Eastern Europe and growth continues unabated to the more mature country markets of UK, Germany and Italy.
