Wizz Air Airline to resume flights to Ukraine, despite war with Russia

Low-cost airline Wizz Air has allowed customers to book flights from the United Kingdom to Ukraine in July after suspending them at the start of Russia’s invasion.

On February 24 the carrier, whose routes cover much of eastern Europe, suspended its flights to Ukraine following the invasion by Russian forces.

At the time it said that “the safety of our passengers and crew remains our top priority” and added, “we hope that normality will return to Ukraine soon.”

Its website still carries a notice that says “all Wizz Air flights to/from Ukraine are temporarily suspended until further notice.”

However on Friday, Wizz Air’s website let customers book twice-weekly flights from the U.K. to the Ukrainian capital starting from July 5.

In news shared by social media users, a one-way ticket for a flight from London Luton airport to Zhulyany airport in the Ukrainian capital was available for prices starting at £70.99 ($91). The next flight between the cities was available on Saturday July 9.

Flights from London Luton to Lviv were also available on Tuesdays and Saturdays starting from July 5.

Last week, Interfax Ukraine reported that from July, Wizz Air flights are planned between Kyiv and Milan, Rome and Larnaca. There would also be routes with Warsaw as well as other Polish cities Wroclaw, Katowice and Gdansk.
