SkyUp Airlines (Kyiv) on November 30, 2020 will operate a nonscheduled flight on the Baku (Azerbaijan) – Kyiv route.
The company’s press service said on Wednesday, the cost of tickets starts at UAH 9,067.
SkyUp said that according to the latest update of the list of countries in the “red” and “green” zones of the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) disease, which was announced by the Health Ministry of Ukraine on November 6, 2020, Azerbaijan remains in the “green” zone.
After entering Ukraine from Azerbaijan, people do not need to self-isolate or take a PCR test. However, passengers need to have an insurance policy, which provides for treatment for COVID-19.
Lviv International Airport has started serving the Azerbaijani low cost carrier Buta Airways, which made its first direct flight to Baku from Lviv. The airport’s press service said on its Facebook page the company will fly to Lviv during the winter season on Mondays and Thursdays. The minimum one-way rate is EUR 29.
Some 51 passengers arrived on the first flight, 64 passengers departed. The flight was carried out on board an Embraer 190 aircraft.
“This direction is not new for the airport. For several years it has been operated by the largest Azerbaijani carrier Azal Airlines. But these flights were stopped for the winter season. This year the airline decided to change its policy and transferred the flight to its subsidiary low cost company Buta Airways,” the report says.
Currently, Lviv Airport also serves such low cost airlines as WizzAir, Ryanair, Pegasus, Ernest, and SkyUp.
As reported, Lviv airport in 2018 increased passenger traffic by 48% compared to 2017, to 1.598 million people.
Azerbaijan’s low cost airline Buta Airways has started servicing flights from Baku to Odesa and back, newly appointed ambassador of Ukraine to Azerbaijan Vladyslav Kanevsky has said.
“Ukraine and Azerbaijan are getting even closer! From today, Azerbaijan’s low cost airline Buta Airways will service flights on the route Baku-Odesa-Baku. Odesa has become the third city where flights from Azerbaijan will be operated. The company is already flying to Kyiv and Kharkiv,” Ukrainian diplomat wrote last week in his account on Twitter.
