October 19, 2021 -MORE THAN DOUBLING CAPACITY TO OFFER THE MOST SEATS OF ANY AIRLINE FROM THE UKRAINE

Wizz Air, Europe’s fastest growing and a leading low-cost airline in Ukraine, announces today its major expansion in the Ukrainian market, with a doubling of capacity.  This expansion comes as a result of Ukraine signing the Open Skies agreement with the EU yesterday, on 12 October 2021.

The airline announces allocation of 5 new modern, state-of-the-art to its base at Kyiv International Airport. The new Airbus 321 aircraft will join the fleet from the beginning of summer season. With this investment, Wizz Air is more than doubling the airline’s capacity at Kyiv International Airport offering passengers 12 new routes from Kyiv to the long-awaited destinations, such as Paris Beauvais, Brussels-Charleroi, Eindhoven, Nice, Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Malaga, Porto, Palma De Mallorca, Chania-Crete, and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg.

Furthermore, Wizz Air also announces the allocation of 2 new Airbus 321 aircraft at its Lviv base starting from the summer season as well. The new aircraft will support operations of 9  new routes to Paris Beauvais, Madrid, Eindhoven, Barcelona, Brussels-Charleroi, Nice, Treviso, Athens, and Thessaloniki.

With these new allocations, Wizz Air more than doubles its capacity in the Ukraine, and increases its fleet to 8 aircraft in Kyiv International Airport and to 3 aircraft in Lviv International Airport.  In addition, the airline will also invest to bring more travel opportunities for passengers traveling from Odesa and Kharkiv, as the airline is adding new routes from Odesa to London Luton, Pardubice, Athens, and from Kharkiv to Thessaloniki and Pardubice. Moreover, Wizz Air expands the frequency of 25 routes already operated from the Ukraine.  .

Seats for all routes are already available on wizzair.com or on the airline’s app for fares as low as UAH 809 / EUR 24.99*

This large-scale expansion of WIZZ operations in Ukraine will enable the airline to achieve 120% growth in summer season 2022. This will make Wizz Air the largest airline providing direct seats from the Ukraine.  The newly allocated capacity of over 1,4 million  seats per year will further contribute to the Ukrainian aviation market and to the creation of over 288 new direct jobs with Wizz Air further  supporting 1050 additional local jobs in associated industries .

Wizz Air started operations in Ukraine in 2008 and since then the airline has carried over 11 million passengers in Ukraine. By basing new aircraft at its Kyiv and Lviv bases and commencing new services, Wizz Air further underlines its commitment to Ukrainian market,  bringing truly affordable air travel services to even more travellers. With today’s announcement, WIZZ brings more all-time favourite European destinations even closer to passengers from Ukraine, offering in total 117 routes to 21 countries from 6 Ukrainian airports.

Speaking at the press conference in Kyiv, Robert Carey, President of Wizz Air Group said: “Today marks a major expansion of Wizz Air in the Ukraine and brings great news for Ukrainian travellers, as well as those who wish to visit the country. Thanks to the new EU Open Skies agreement, we are delighted to announce that we will more than double our capacity to the Ukraine, with the addition of 5 new aircraft to our base in Kyiv and 2 new aircraft in Lviv. These additional aircraft will allow us to launch  26 new routes from Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa and Kharkov and increase frequencies on 25 existing routes from the Ukraine. In total, Wizz Air will operate 117 routes to 22 countries from the Ukraine, including 11 total based aircraft.  Committed to the Ukrainian market, more based aircraft and more low fare routes mean more jobs, and more support to ramp up tourism in Ukraine.  In addition to giving more Ukrainians the chance to travel thanks to our low fares, this investment will further stimulate the local economy, and the aviation and tourism sectors. 

We look forward to welcoming more passengers on board our modern aircraft with great service.”

Denys Kostrzhevsky, Head of the Board of Directors of the “Kyiv” International Airport, added:Wizz Air has been our strategic partner for many years. Today’s news is another testament to our strong relationship. We are glad together with Ukrainian citizens that from now on they will have even more opportunities to travel from IEV. And we will continue to care about the best and more comfortable service for our passengers.

Wizz Air was one of the first airlines to introduce a new era of sanitized travel, with enhanced hygiene measures to ensure the health and safety of passengers and crew across its network. Click here to view Wizz Air’s health and safety video.

By adding WIZZ Flex to a booking, passengers can rest assured that if circumstances change, or they simply wish to travel on a different date or to a different destination, that they will be able to rebook on any WIZZ flight of their choice. This provides an  extra layer of protection and peace of mind for passenger bookings during these uncertain times.
