VILNIUS - Wizz Air, the largest low-cost, low-fare airline in Central and Eastern Europe, has announced further route growth at its Vilnius base with a low fare service to Kiev, starting from 112 litas (32.4 euros), the company said in a statement.
This direct flight between the Lithuanian and Ukrainian capital cities is in line with Wizz Air’s strategy to offer a varied route network connecting exciting secondary airports as well as primary airports such as Vilnius and Kiev. The Kiev Zhulyany airport is conveniently located eight kilometers from Kiev city centre and will be the entry point to Ukraine for both revelers and business customers flying with Wizz Air’s low fares. It is expected that this route will also be very popular among Ukrainian citizens with Ukraine already seen as a fast growing market for tourism in Western Europe.
On March 22, UTair-Ukraine Airlines expanded its route network, connecting Vilnius and Kiev, the company said in a statement. The regular flight will be operated three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but from April 27 it will be operated daily.
Connections in Kiev (Zhulyany) Airport allow residents of Lithuania to travel to other destinations of UTair-Ukraine - Odessa, Lvov, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Lugansk and Tbilisi. Starting June 1 the connection Vilnius - Simferopol will be available as well.
