10 February , 2021  

Windrose (Kyiv) from February 14, 2021 will open a regular cargo flight between Kyiv and Hong Kong.

According to the company’s press service on Tuesday, from February 14 to December 27, 2021, cargo flights on the Kyiv-Hong Kong-Kyiv route will be performed on Sundays from Kyiv to Hong Kong and on Mondays back.

“Windrose Airlines hopes that the opening of this program will help all market participants to accelerate the delivery of cargo both from Hong Kong to Kyiv and subsequently from Kyiv to Hong Kong,” the company said.

The flights will be operated by Airbus A330-200 P2F aircraft, which has been modified for cargo transportation.

As reported, in November 2020, Windrose signed a wet leasing contract for Airbus A330 aircraft to perform cargo flights from Kyiv to New York and Hong Kong.
