Turkish Airlines airline is ready to increase the number of flights on the existing routes to Ukraine if this is agreed at the intergovernmental level. This was announced by the head of the airline’s Kyiv office, Dinçer Sayıcı, the Interfax Ukraine news agency reports.

"Of course, we would like to increase the number of flights on the existing routes, especially to cities such as Kyiv, Odesa, and Lviv. This requires the granting of certain permits. In particular, it requires amendment of agreements at the Ukrainian-Turkish intergovernmental level. We currently have permits for 16 flights to Kyiv, 11 flights to Odesa, and three flights to Lviv per week," he said.

The airline’s network of Ukrainian routes covers seven cities – Kyiv, Odesa, Lviv, Dnipro, Kherson, Zaporizhia, and Ivano-Frankivsk.
