The Ryanair airline (Ireland) intends to carry half a million passengers on routes between Ukrainian and Polish cities in 2019.

The press service of Europe’s largest low-cost airline announced this to the CFTS portal.

"Ryanair began flying from Poland to eight destinations in Ukraine in winter 2018. We will grow as a whole to 16 routes and transport more than 500,000 customers between the two countries this year," the airline said.

As reported earlier, Ryanair began flying to Ukraine’s third city – Kharkiv – on June 17. It operates flights to the Polish city of Krakow from there. Flights from Kharkiv to Poznan will begin on October 27.

The low-cost airline will fly from Odesa to five destinations in Poland: Poznan, Krakow, Wroclaw, Katowice, and Gdansk.
