From 30 September Wizz Air Ukraine will operate a thrice-weekly service from Kiev to Vnukovo International Airport in Moscow.
The service will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until 27 October, when the schedule will change to Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Passengers will fly on a 180 seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
Akos Bus, Director General of Wizz Air Ukraine announced, “We are happy to offer Ukrainians a new affordable service to Moscow from Kiev. The opening of the Kiev-Moscow route is a long awaited landmark event for Wizz Air Ukraine.”
He went on to reflect upon the needs of the Ukrainian aviation industry more broadly, claiming “Joining the Open Skies agreement is a proven way to attract more airlines and benefit consumers with lower prices and more choice. It would be the way forward and towards Europe, by democratizing flying and making air travel available to every Ukrainian and not to a few privileged ones.”
