Passenger air transportation is planned to be resumed in Zakarpattia region, the head of the Zakarpattia department of the Servant of the People party, MP Mykola Tyschenko has said.
"We have finally reached an agreement with Windrose and ... I want to tell you the good news: we are resuming passenger air transportation in Zakarpattia," he said during a briefing.
At the same time, the parliamentarian recalled that in 2019, air traffic was restored for a short time, but due to the fact that it turned out to be economically unprofitable, the transportation stopped.
