On July 1, a Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air opened a second base in Ukraine with a location at the Lviv Danylo Halytskyi International Airport. This was reported by the press service of Ukraine’s Infrastructure Ministry.
The agency noted that the company would operate five new flights from Western Ukraine to several European cities in July.
In particular, flights to the following cities will be conducted from Lviv: Billund (Denmark); Tallinn (Estonia); Lisbon (Portugal); Hamburg (Germany); Szczecin (Poland).
In addition, Wizz Air is expanding its route network and commencing flights from Kharkiv to Tallinn and Berlin.
The Ministry of Infrastructure also stated that the opening of Wizz Air's new base would bring Lviv more than 100 million dollars of investment in 2020 and would create more than 30 jobs.
As we reported earlier, Kyiv international airport reported a gradual cutting of the staff so as to avoid bankruptcy.
"Kyiv international airport begins gradual dismissal of its workers due to the deep crisis that the aviation branch has been experiencing because of the Covid-19 pandemic, which leads to a rapid fall in the number of flights and reduction of passenger flow," the message reads.
