In June 2021, some 21,113 flights were performed in the airspace of Ukraine, which is 59.6% of the June volume of flights in the pre-crisis 2019, the press service of the State Air Traffic Service Enterprise (UkSATSE) said on Wednesday.
According to UkSATSE, the absolute value of the number of flights in May of this year increased, the dynamics can also be called positive – the indicators for May were less: 56.6% of the number of flights in the same period of 2019.
According to UkSATSE, the increase in the intensity of flights is due to the beginning of the tourist season, the gradual opening of the borders of foreign countries, the restoration of a number of international flights to Europe suspended due to the pandemic, and the entry of new air carriers into the Ukrainian aviation market.
“An important impetus for the revitalization of transit in the Ukrainian sky was also the revision of the rates for air navigation services over the Black Sea. New air navigation rates began to operate on June 1 of this year, at which the cost of a 100 km flight is EUR 25 instead of EUR 51.1. First of all, Ukrainian airlines revised their plans of flights in the southern and southeastern directions with Ukraine and resumed flights in the Simferopol flight information region,” the press service quoted head of UkSATSE Andriy Yarmak as saying.
He also said that UkSATSE is actively working to attract foreign carriers to operate flights in this part of the Ukrainian airspace.
Ukrainian airlines performed 8,953 flights in June 2021 (20% less compared to June 2019), foreign airlines performed 12,160 flights (49.8% less).
