Ukraine's SkyUp Airlines will expand its flight map with seven new countries in summer, the airline’s press service reports.
“We have big plans for summer 2021. In addition to the already familiar SkyUp destinations such as France, Italy, Greece, Czech Republic, Georgia, Spain, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Armenia, Albania, Israel, Portugal, Slovakia, and Turkey, we are preparing to start flying from Kyiv and regions to Poland, Germany, Denmark, Jordan, Sweden, Serbia, and the Netherlands,” the report reads.
In 2020, SkyUp performed 8,745 flights, and carried 1,250,792 passengers.
“Starting a year with a fleet twice as large as the previous one (2019 we started with five aircraft and only in December received the 10th aircraft), due to the pandemic and lockdown, we did not reach even half of the passenger traffic planned for 2020,” the airline added.
As Ukrinform reported, in March 2020, Ukraine temporarily suspended air traffic as part of quarantine measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Domestic flights were resumed on June 5 and international flights on June 15 last year.
