SkyUp Airlines launches new direct flights


SkyUp Airlines, a Ukrainian low-cost carrier, launched scheduled flights connecting Prague with Lviv and Kharkiv today. Direct flights from Václav Havel Airport Prague to these destinations will be available to passengers twice a week, on Thursdays and Sundays.
The new routes will be operated by Boeing 737-800 aircraft with 189 seats. Today, the SkyUp Airlines aircraft was welcomed with a water salute as its inaugural flight from Kharkiv touched down at Václav Havel Airport Prague, while passengers departing from Prague had drinks and appetizers served to them at the gate.
“We appreciate the newly established cooperation with SkyUp Airlines and welcome a further increase in capacity on flights between Czech Republic and Ukraine. Last year alone, we handled nearly 240,000 passengers on the regular flights between them. I believe that the new routes to Kharkiv and Lviv will be appreciated not only by a large number of Ukrainian passengers, but also by Czech tourists interested in exploring non-traditional destinations. Based on our estimates, we expect to carry as many as 60,000 passengers per year on these routes in both directions,” says Václav Řehoř, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Prague Airport. There are now four destinations in Ukraine that are directly available from Václav Havel Airport Prague. Besides Kharkiv and Lviv, passengers can fly to Odessa and Kiev as well.
SkyUp Airlines has been consistently working on building its own network of international routes since its flight programme was launched in May 2018. “We’ve taken another step towards implementation of our strategic programme aimed at expanding the map of flights from Ukraine’s regions. From now on, it is even easier for Lviv and Kharkiv residents to discover the Czech Republic. Although, the importance of opening Ukraine to the world remains a priority. We’re glad that we can show Czechs Lviv, the centre of Ukrainian traditions, with its baked goods well-known as placeks, coffee, and the old city, and also to introduce them to Kharkiv, a city of students, the architecture of the Soviet avant-garde and modernism,” says Yevhen Khaynatsky, CEO of SkyUp Airlines.
