The SkyUp airline company has obtained permission to fly to Europe, having obtained TCO (Third Country Operator) authorization, the CFTS portal reports.

This authorization gives the airline the right to fly to 28 European countries that are members of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), as well as to four countries that are members of the European Free Trade Association (Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein).

In connection with this, the airline company is preparing to announce new routes to Europe.

“We are pleased to announce that SkyUp has passed the TCO procedure, thus obtaining permission to fly to European countries! We will announce the first routes in the near future,” the airline said.

The Join UP! tour operator’s Commercial Director Oleksandr Alba recently said that obtaining a TCO certificate would allow the airline to "transfer European flights to the wings of SkyUp and start flying to Tenerife directly without an intermediate landing."

As reported, SkyUp recently announced plans to launch low-cost flights during the winter.

The airline received new call signs in in late August.
