Wizz Air resumes flights from Ukraine

The Hungarian low-cost airline Wizz Air has announced the reopening of its base at Kyiv International Airport (Zhuliany) and flights from Ukraine to six countries.

"Wizz Air, the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the leading low-cost airline in Ukraine, announced today the resumption of operation of its base at Kyiv International Airport and flights from Ukraine to Hungary, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Greece and the United Kingdom," reads a press release of the airline.

From June 17, Ukrainian passengers will be able to plan a trip with Wizz Air to the following destinations: Athens (Greece), Billund and Copenhagen (Denmark), Tallinn (Estonia), Berlin Schönefeld, Cologne, Dortmund, Hamburg, Hanover, Leipzig, Memmingen , Bremen, Nuremberg (Germany), Budapest (Hungary) and London Luton (the UK).

The airline also notes that since the safety of passengers and crew is its top priority, the company has announced a range of enhanced hygiene measures. As part of these new protocols, throughout the flight, both cabin crew and passengers are required to wear facemasks, with cabin crew also required to wear gloves. Sanitising wipes are handed to each passenger upon entering the aircraft, onboard magazines have been removed from the aircraft, and any onboard purchases are encouraged to be made by contactless payment.

Passengers are requested to follow physical distancing measures introduced by the local health authorities and are encouraged to make all purchases prior to the flight online (e.g. checked in luggage, WIZZ Priority, fast security track), to minimize any possible physical contact at the airport. 

Wizz Air’s aircraft are regularly put through an industry-leading fogging process with an antiviral solution and, following WIZZ’s stringent daily cleaning schedule, all of the airline’s aircraft are further disinfected overnight with the same antiviral solution. 

As Ukrinform reported, on June 15, Ukraine resumed international scheduled passenger flights after a several months of coronavirus quarantine break.
