flydubai has announced its entry into Ukraine with the launch of flights to Kiev, Donetsk and Kharkov.
Flights to Kiev and Kharkov will begin on 16 September while flights to the eastern-city of Donetsk will start a day later on 17 September.
Anton Volov, director of Kiev’s Boryspil International Airport, commented, “We are very much looking forward to welcoming flydubai to Kiev in September. flydubai is a quality airline offering affordable flights on brand new aircraft and this will be a major benefit for passengers wishing to travel between Kiev and Dubai.”
flydubai CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith, noted, “Ukraine is a fascinating country ideally located at the edges of North, South, East and West Europe. The potential to develop the economic relationship between Ukraine and the UAE is huge and I am confident flydubai’s three new destinations will have a large stimulant effect on this relationship.
“Boryspil International Airport in Kiev is an impressive modern airport and we have been granted the privilege of flying into the prestigious Terminal F, a terminal usually not offered to low cost airlines,” added Al Ghaith. “I would like to extend flydubai’s thanks to the authorities in Kiev for giving us this honour.”
