Ukrainian SkyUp Airlines will change its home airport, placing its fleet from Zhuliany Airport to the Terminal F of the Boryspil international airport (Kyiv region) on March 31, 2019, as Interfax-Ukraine reported.
The airline said that the decision to change the home airport was made due to restrictions on the operation of aircraft, which currently exist at Zhuliany airport.
"SkyUp Airlines is developing very dynamically, the airline plans to expand the fleet and the number of destinations. We see that the Kyiv airport works with our heavy aircraft at the limit of its capabilities, both in terms of their operation and in terms of operational characteristics. Therefore, we have made a decision to place SkyUp Airlines aircraft on the territory of the Boryspil airport, in Terminal F, which, after repairs and some changes, will be opened at the end of March," SkyUp Director General Yevhen Khainatsky stated.
The airline said that changing the airport will not significantly affect the schedules of flights – the entire flight program will be in line with the schedule, and passengers will not feel discomfort. Transfer of flights to the new airport will occur gradually, and passengers will be warned in advance.
