Ukraine’s State Aviation Service has concluded negotiations with German and Hungarian aviation regulators on increasing the frequency of their flights. This will allow Ukrainian airlines to fly to these countries more frequently, the CFTS reports.

"52 flights per week. This is the aggregate frequency that is now available to airlines on the main routes between Ukraine and Germany (from Kyiv to Berlin, Frankfurt, and Munich). In addition, the frequency on the Kyiv-Budapest route has been increased from 9 to 14 flights per week (for passenger and cargo flights)," the State Aviation Service said in a statement.

Previously, the Ukrainian airlines UIA and Yanair were refused permission to increase the frequencies of their flights or launch new flights to these destinations. In particular, Yanair planned to launch Kyiv-Munich flights and UIA intended to operate flights from Kyiv to Budapest more frequently.

The State Aviation Service is also negotiating with the Finnish aviation authorities on increasing the frequency of flights on the Kyiv-Helsinki-Kyiv route.
