Austrian Airlines launches flights to Zaporizhzhia

 Austrian Airlines launches flights to Zaporizhzhia

• City in Ukraine to be served three times a week from 17 May

• Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa complete the Ukraine programme in the summer

Austrian Airlines will fly to Zaporizhzhia in Ukraine from 17 May. The route is being offered for the first time and will be served three times a week with an Embraer E195. An increase to a daily connection is planned in the course of the summer. Austria's home carrier is thus strengthening its presence in Ukraine. In addition to Zaporizhzhia, the program already includes Kyiv, Lviv and Odesa. Today's announcement of the new route comes on a special day. On 1 April 1991, Austrian Airlines flew to Ukraine for the first time. The destination was Kyiv.

“We are pleased to announce the launch of Zaporizhzhia on today's 30th anniversary of our Ukraine connections”, says Austrian Airlines CCO Michael Trestl. “It not only strengthens our Ukraine offering, but also our traditionally strong network to Eastern Europe.”

On the Austrian Airlines website, passengers can find information on the topics of travelling in times of Corona, the obligation to wear a FFP2 mask, country-specific travel regulations or flexible rebooking arrangements. The information is updated on an ongoing basis.
