"I am pleased to announce that we are discovering a new airport – Zaporizhia – for ourselves. We will operate six routes from there. I can say that we are announcing such a high-quality list of routes from a new airport for the first time," said Eidhagen.

The flights will begin on March 29, 2020.

The flights will be operated according to the following timetable and frequency:

Zaporizhia – Budapest from March 29 (Thursdays, Sundays);

Zaporizhia – Vienna from March 29 (Thursdays, Sundays);

Zaporizhia – Wroclaw from March 29 (Wednesdays, Sundays);
