Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) is considering launching flights between regional airports in Ukraine and Poland. UIA’s Sales Director for Europe and North America Andrii Pavlenko announced this at a press conference in Warsaw on Thursday, the Polish publication Pasazer reports.
"We believe that the offer of flights between Ukraine and Poland is insufficient in comparison with other neighboring countries. This is specifically why we are considering the possibility of launching flights from an airport in western Ukraine to Poznan or Gdansk. A decision will be made before the end of this month," Pavlenko said.
At the same time, UIA’s Sales Director in Poland Krzysztof Kolodziej said that the Ivano-Frankivsk airport was being considered. The flights will be operated twice a week, and the Ukrainian company plane will be based in Polish airports. According to Kolodziej, Ivano-Frankivsk is an attractive destination for Poles.
In addition, the airline is considering the prospect of launching Kyiv-Krakow flights. However, this will not happen until next year. "When it comes to flights from Kyiv, the most likely is a flight to Krakow. However, it will certainly not be launched this year," Pavlenko said.
As reported, UIA will launch flights from Ivano-Frankivsk to Valencia in June.
