WINDROSE INTRODUCES NEW SKYPASSES FOR DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

Updated routes and fares are already available on the airline’s website

WINDROSE became the first airline in Ukraine to develop its own Skypasses. Their advantage was a fixed price and no restrictions for booking. The sales of Skypasses were suspended for a while due to the necessity to change their format.

The commercial director of the airline Olha Tolstykhina commented on the service update: “We considered  our passengers’ requests and offers. Our route map within Ukraine has significantly expanded over the past six months, so we need to make our fares more flexible. These Skypasses include additional services — Skypass can be “freezed” or its validity can be extended, in addition, our passengers can choose the type of Skypasses depending on their most frequent flight destinations”.

4 types of Skypasses are available on WINDROSE website:

–        ZHOVTYI

–        BLAKYTNYI

–        ZHOVTO-BLAKYTNYI

–        ZHOVTO-BLAKYTNYI+

BELARUSIAN AIR CARRIER BELAVIA EXTENDED SUSPENSION OF ALL OF FLIGHTS TO UKRAINE

The Belarusian air carrier Belavia has extended the suspension of all of its flights to Ukraine until September 30, 2021, in line with a similar decision adopted by Ukraine, the Belavia press service told Interfax.
“The Ukrainian side informed us of the extension of its ban on Belavia flights until September 30, 2021. This is their official position. Consequently, the suspension of all fights to Ukraine has also been extended. We can’t say at this point how the situation will unfold in the future,” the press service said.
As reported, due to the Ukrainian authorities’ ban on Belavia’s flights, the Belarusian air carrier had to cancel its flights to Ukraine between May 26 and August 25 of this year.
European Union member states, Ukraine and some other countries prohibited Belarusian airlines from passing through their airspace in late May due to the Ryanair flight landing incident in Minsk. Thus, Belavia has lost access to more than two-thirds of passenger destination countries after it was banned from using the airspace of a number of countries.
