The FlixBus bus operator will launch three new routes from Ukraine on November 5.
Michal Leman, FlixBus' managing director for Ukraine, Poland, and the Baltic states, announced this at a press conference, the CFTS portal reports.
Two of the new route will fully comply with FlixBus’ "green" standards. They are the Kyiv-Warsaw-Szczecin and Chernivtsi-Warsaw routes. The company will operate buses on these routes two and three times per week, respectively. FlixBus’ partner FOP Sergei Sherstyuk will operate buses on the first of these routes and IV-Auto on the second.
The third route announced by the company is Lviv-Ostrava. It will be serviced by FlixBus’ Polish partner ASIK. Services will be operated on this route twice a week.
Together with the new routes, the bus operator's network in Ukraine covered 16 cities in 12 regions, which are connected by routes to 48 cities in six European countries as of October 2020.
Tickets for buses on all these routes have gone on sale. Prices start at UAH 149 (promotional rate).
"With the launch of these three routes, we will fulfill almost all the plans that we had for Ukraine when we started operating in this region, except the two large cities of Dnipro and Kharkiv, which I hope we will add soon," Lehman said.
As reported, FlixBus launched new international routes from Ukraine in July, when it launched the Kyiv-Krakow-Prague and Kyiv-Vilnius routes.
