The Swiss airline has announced that it will resume flights to Ukraine on March 26, 2018, reports.

The airline will perform its first Zurich-Kyiv flight after a four-year hiatus on that day. Flights on this route will be performed four times a week: on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

A detailed timetable has not yet been published. Ticket sales will begin on October 25, 2017.

Swiss is a member of the Lufthansa Group. The airline flew from Zurich to Kyiv’s Boryspil airport from October 2013 to October 2014. Flights to Kyiv were suspended due to economic reasons, because "the development of the business on the route did not meet expectations," the airline said at the time.

The resumption of Swiss flights to Ukraine will increase the number of Kyiv passengers’ options for connect flights on routes to Europe and America within the Lufthansa group, which also includes the Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines, which operate flights to Ukraine.

Connect flights through Zurich will be available from March 26, 2018.
