The Wizz Air airline will open a base at the Danylo Halytskyi Lviv international airport, where it will base one Airbus A320 aircraft, on July 1 this year. It will become the airline’s second base in Ukraine.

The company announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

Along with the establishment of the new base, the low-cost airline announced that it would launch seven new services from Lviv to Billund in Denmark, Tallinn in Estonia, Lisbon (Portugal), Hamburg (Germany), and Szczecin (Poland), as well as from Kharkiv to Tallinn and Berlin.

The airline also announced the new transportation rules that will be implemented after resumption of flights. "As passenger and crew safety has always been Wizz Air’s top priority, the airline has recently announced several additional measures to support physical distancing during boarding and enhanced cleanliness on board," Wizz Air said. “The measures are easy to follow and ensure the most sanitary conditions. The airline asks passengers to handle bookings online where possible, including online check-in, baggage drop-off as well as opting in for contactless payment during onboard purchases. Wearing masks onboard is obligatory for crew and passengers, thus all are reminded to travel in masks. The aircraft is thoroughly cleaned several times a day and is disinfected overnight, the crew will also handout sanitizing pads to passengers at boarding as well as will observe seat distancing for passengers on flights where the load factor allows."

According to the airline, Lviv-Billund and Lviv-Lisbon flights will begin on July 1 (they will be operated on Wednesdays and Sundays); Lviv-Tallinn and Kharkiv-Tallinn flights will begin on July 2 (they will be operated on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays); Lviv-Hamburg, Lviv-Szczecin, and Kharkiv-Berlin flights will begin on July 3 (they will be operated on Mondays and Fridays).

As the CFTS portal reported earlier, the Wizz Air airline will resume flights from London Luton Airport on May 1. The first destinations to which flights will be operated from this airport after the resumption are Budapest, Lisbon, Tenerife, and a number of cities in Romania.
