The Romanian national airline, TAROM, will begin operating its own flights on the Odesa-Bucharest-Odesa route on September 2. The Odesa airport confirmed this on July 31, the CFTS portal reports, citing the airport’s Facebook page. 

"The flights will be operated three times a week – on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The flights will depart from the Odesa International Airport at 04:15 and from the Henri Coanda International Airport (Bucharest) at 01:00, local time. Modern ATR 42/72 turboprop aircraft are planned for operation on the route," the report says.

At the Bucharest airport, passengers will be able to connect to the airline’s flights on more than 30 routes to Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as flights to 10 destinations within Romania.

Direct flights to Romania from Ukraine are currently performed only by the Windrose airline, which flies from Kyiv’s Boryspil airport to Bucharest.

The Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air announced at the beginning of this month that it would launch five new routes from Chisinau in mid-December. In particular, the airline plans to launch flights from the capital of Moldova to Copenhagen, Memmingen, Dortmund, Brussels-Charleroi, and Paris-Beauvais.
