SkyUp launch 11 new international routes to Ukraine

Following the Ryanair UK saga over the last two weeks, some good news is that Ukrainian airline SkyUp have been given permission to begin flights from Ukraine to 11 new international destinations, including the UK and Germany.

The State Aviation Service of Ukraine decides who can fly to Ukraine and how often, in their meeting they have granted SkyUp permission to fly;

  • Kyiv – London (UK) – Return trip three times weekly, permission starting immediately but flights expected in March
  • Kyiv – Marseilles (France) – Return trip twice weekly, starting April 6th 2021
  • Kyiv – Podgorica (Montenegro) – Return trip three times weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Kyiv – Hamburg (Germany) – Return trip three times weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Kyiv – Nuremberg (Germany) – Return trip twice weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Kyiv – Hanover (Germany) – Return trip three times weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Kyiv – Brno (Czech Republic) – Return trip twice weekly, starting April 25th 2021
  • Kyiv – Ostrava (Czech Republic) – Return trip three times weekly, starting April 23th 2021

In addition, they have also been granted;

  • Zaporozhye – Berlin (Germany) – Return trip twice weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Lviv – Munich (Germany) – Return trip twice weekly, starting March 28th 2021
  • Odessa – Munich (Germany) – Return trip twice weekly, starting March 28th 2021

In December, SkyUp announced a twice weekly Kyiv – Stuttgart return trip from March 29 and a three times weekly Kyiv – Dusseldorf route from May 28. The airline last month also resumed Kyiv – Sofia flights and started two new routes to Istanbul.

For those unfamiliar with SkyUp, they are a Ukrainian airline that started operations in May 2018 with a flight from Kyiv to Sharm El Sheikh. Currently, the airline has a fleet of 11 Boeing aircraft, with 8 more on order.
