Cheap Flights to Antalya Start from Kharkiv

On May 22 a new private Ukrainian low-cost air carrier SkyUp launched charter flights to Antalya from Kharkiv international airport. The first plane took off at 2:33 p.m.

In the near future, the company is also launching a number of other charter flights, and some regular flights are to follow.

As early as June, SkyUp will let Kharkivites fly at reasonable prices to Barcelona (Spain), Burgas (Bulgaria), Larnaca (Cyprus), Rimini (Italy) and Tivat (Montenegro).

SkyUp announces cheap regular flights in late June. The airline plans to launch Kharkiv-Odesa flight first. The price of a one-way ticket for domestic flights starts from UAH 499 ($20).

Currently, SkyUp tickets are included in the tours price, but the airline representatives say the tickets will be sold separately soon.

The air carrier has a fleet of two Boeing 737-800. According to its recently signed $624 million contract, Boeing will produce and deliver to Ukraine five new-generation Boeing 737 MAX in 2023.

Reference: The new low-cost private airline SkyUp announced its entering the market in December 2017 and planned to start performing charter flights in April 2018. However, the company received an air operator’s certificate granting the right to operate flights only on May 16. The first flight was the one from Kyiv to Sharm el-Sheikh on May 21.
