The Irish low-cost carrier, Ryanair, may consider launching flights from Ukraine to the Israeli resort town of Eilat in the future.
Ryanair’s Chief Financial Officer David O'Brien announced this in an interview with the RBK Ukraine publication, the CFTS portal reports.
Asked whether the airline was considering launching a flight from Ukraine to the Canary Islands, O'Brien replied, “Not next summer. We have already completed the creation of the route network for the summer season. Besides, the Canary Islands are quite far away. Perhaps we will offer Eilat in Israel as a new destination in the future if such an opportunity presents itself."
As reported, O'Brien recently flew to Kyiv to announce the Irish low-cost airline’s new routes from the Ukrainian capital, which will be launched in summer 2019. The airline plans to launch flights from Kyiv to Manchester, Dublin, Athens, Sofia, and Paphos. The flights to Dublin will begin in May and the flights to the other four cities will begin in April.
The new routes from Kyiv will be launched in the summer, and the total number of the low-cost airline’s flights from Ukraine will be 22.
