Ryanair, an Irish low-cost airline, performed its first flight from Odesa on June 19.
The carrier operated the first flight from Odesa to Krakow, the CFTS portal reports.
The airline now transports passengers to four Ukrainian cities, namely Kyiv, Lviv, Kharkiv, and Odesa.
Odesa-Krakow flights will be operated twice a week: at 13:05 on Wednesdays and 12:50 on Sundays. The flight duration is 1 hour 45 minutes.
“We are pleased to launch a new Odesa-Krakow flight as part of our summer timetable for 2019. To mark the opening of the route, we are announcing the sale of tickets from Odesa for only EUR 28.99 from September to November 2019. Tickets are available at this price on the official website of Ryanair until June 21," said Olga Pawlonka, Ryanair’s sales and marketing manager for Central and Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
Krakow is the first of six destinations that the airline has announced from Odesa. Berlin, Wroclaw, Gdansk, Katowice, and Poznan will be added to the winter timetable from October 2019.
The Odesa airport’s Director Pavlo Prusak stressed that the launch of flights from Odesa by the world's largest low-cost airline was a major aviation event for Odesa and southern Ukraine.
