WINDROSE CELEBRATES FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF LAUNCH OF UKRAINIAN DOMESTIC AIR TRAFFIC PROGRAM

Last year, Ukrainian aviation faced many challenges, so there were almost no encouraging forecasts regarding the resumption of flights or the opening of new directions. However, immediately after the lifting of restrictions on flights, the Ukrainian airline WINDROSE carried out its first domestic flight. It was a bright start for a new stage in the company’s development, the goal of which is to raise the culture of transportation in our country to a higher level.

In February 2020, WINDROSE CEO Volodymyr Kamenchuk announced the launch of a new project. “WINDROSE has been providing services of tourist transportation to different parts of the world for more than 16 years. Subsequently, it became clear that it was time to apply our experience to domestic flights. This year we are launching a new domestic program that will connect the large cities of our country with convenient and fast flights.”

The network started with the six largest Ukrainian cities. However, over the year, the flight map extended to 12 destinations: Kyiv, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odesa, Kherson, Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv, and in June of this year new routes were opened to Uzhgorod, Kryvy Rih and Chernivtsi. With the start of the new program, WINDROSE has renewed its fleet – domestic flights are carried out mainly on board ATR 72-600 aircraft. These are aircraft of increased safety, reliability and comfort, specially designed for regional flights.

A new modern trend is to fly within Ukraine. “Creating a habit of flying within Ukraine is now our main goal. During this year we have made a lot of efforts to make Ukrainians know as much as possible about this opportunity. We are already seeing the result and the shifts are very positive. First of all, Ukrainians must understand that to travel by plane across the country is accessible and comfortable,” PR manager of the company Iryna Levenko said.

Now the company is developing a network of domestic transportation and successfully opening new directions. We hope that soon Ukrainians will be convinced of the availability and speed of domestic flights and travel around Ukraine with the reliable wings of WINDROSE Airline.
