Wizz Air, a Hungarian low-cost airline, will station a fourth aircraft at its base in Kyiv, the CFTS reports, citing a statement that the airline made on Monday, March 4.
The airline also continues the expansion of its operations in Ukraine this month, thanks to the deployment of the fourth Airbus A320 aircraft at the Kyiv base, Wizz Air said.
The company sees the fourth Airbus A320 as an investment USD 400 million in Ukraine. Expansion of the low-cost airline’s base in the Ukrainian capital will increase the number of jobs created in Ukraine by it to 140.
“With the launch of four new flights and the deployment of the fourth Airbus A320 aircraft at its Kyiv base, Wizz Air once again underlines its commitment to the Ukrainian market. […] We are happy to continue our investment in Ukraine with the addition of a fourth Airbus A320 aircraft at our Kyiv base, creating more new direct jobs at Wizz Air as well as supporting over 1,000 jobs in aviation, tourism and other associated industries across the country," said Tamara Vallois, the airline’s head of communications.
Wizz Air currently offers 44 routes to 13 countries from three Ukrainian airports (Kyiv, Lviv, and Kharkiv).
As reported, the low-cost airline launched four new flights from Ukraine (from Kyiv to Bremen, Riga, and Billund and from Lviv to Copenhagen) during the period of March 1-3.
