Wizz Air, a Hungarian low-cost airline, announced a major expansion of its operations in the Ukrainian market on 13 October. It plans to launch 23 new flights from four Ukrainian airports in 2022 and launch flights to three more destinations in December 2021.

In particular, Wizz Air plans to launch flights from the Kyiv airport to Paris Beauvais, Brussels-Charleroi, Eindhoven, Nice, Barcelona, Madrid, Alicante, Malaga, Porto, Palma de Mallorca, Chania-Crete, and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, the CFTS correspondent reports.

The airline also plans to launch flights from Lviv to Paris Beauvais, Madrid, Eindhoven, Barcelona, Brussels-Charleroi, Nice, Treviso, Athens, and Thessaloniki.

In addition, it plans to launch flights from Odesa to London Luton, Pardubice, and Athens and from Kharkiv to Thessaloniki and Pardubice.

Flights from Kyiv to Paris, Eindhoven, and Brussels will begin in December 2021 and flights to the other destinations in spring and summer 2022.

According to Wizz Air, the airline will fly from Ukraine to 22 countries instead of the current 18 after the launch of the new routes. In total, Wizz Air will operate 117 routes to 22 countries from Ukraine.
