Kharkiv Airport Opens New Travel Routes

“This year, a greater number of international flights will operate from Kharkiv Airport,” informs the airport’s press service.

On January 16, Ryanair, an Irish low-cost airline, launched nonstop flights to the Hungarian capital Budapest twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays.

Due to the great demand, Belavia Belarus Airlines increases the frequency of direct flights to Minsk, the capital of Belarus, from five to seven services per week from April 30.

“The Eastern Paris,” as Azerbaijan capital Baku was called in the 20th century, is now much more accessible to Kharkivites due to its popularity. Buta Airways, an Azerbaijani low-cost carrier, increases in the number of flights from two to three per week. In addition to already operating flights on Tuesdays and Fridays, the air carrier is adding one additional service on Sunday from May 17.

Ukrainian low-cost air carrier SkyUp is opening a new route for beach lovers. Flights to Heraklion, a port city and the capital of the Greek island of Crete, will be launched on Saturdays from May 2 and on Wednesdays from May 27.

Windrose and SkyUp Ukrainian airlines announced the launch of a regular flight from Kharkiv to the new destination – Lamezia Terme – the city in southern Italy. Windrose will perform flights on Fridays from May 29 and SkyUp Airlines is going to start service to the new destination on Mondays from June 1.

To date, Kharkiv Airport operates regular flights to 19 overseas and two domestic destinations.
