The State Aviation Service has reached agreement on increasing the number of destinations for direct flights between Ukraine and two EU countries (the Czech Republic and Lithuania), the press service of the agency announced.

Kaunas and Palanga have been added to the network of arrival/departure points in Lithuania. Currently, Ukrainian air carriers fly only to Vilnius. Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) announced in May that it would launch flights to Palanga on 19 June.

Prague-Dnipropetrovsk has been added to the list of major routes to the Czech Republic. Flights to the capital of the Czech Republic are currently available from Kyiv and Odesa. Previously, Ukrainians were also able to fly to Prague from Kharkiv, Lviv, Donetsk, and Uzhhorod.

According to the press service of the State Aviation Service, the new destinations will be taken into consideration at the next meeting of the commission on assignment of new routes.

As reported, the State Aviation Service recently denied the UIA the right to perform flights from Kyiv to Palanga because of the absence of Palanga in bilateral agreements.
