The Ryanair low-cost airline will begin flying to the Kherson airport in December this year.

Ukraine’s Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Kryklyi and Ryanair’s Chief Commercial Officer David O’Brien announced this at a joint news briefing at the Ministry of Infrastructure, the CFTS correspondent reports.

Flights to Kherson will be operated from Krakow (Poland) from December 21 this year.

"…We agreed at the meeting to launch a flight from a new airport in Ukraine. Kherson will be this new airport. Flights to Krakow will be operated from there from December 21," Kryklyi said. According to him, flights on this route will be operated twice a week.

As reported earlier, the Wizz Air airline’s Executive Vice President and Deputy Chief Executive Officer Stephen Jones said in August last year that the Hungarian low-cost airline had also held talks on possible operations in Kherson.
