The State Aviation Administration of Ukraine issued an operator certificate to the new Ukrainian low-cost airline Bees Airline on March 12, which gives the right to fly.
Currently, the airline has only one aircraft in Ukraine. This is a Boeing 737-800 that previously flew at UIA. The second plane – also a Boeing 737-800 produced in 2010 is now being repainted in Europe and will arrive in Ukraine after receiving a new livery. Both airliners have the maximum possible number of seats – 189. Ryanair is using the same configuration.
In May, Bees Airline plans to receive two more aircraft and expand its fleet to four airliners.
The airliner will start transporting passengers from March 18 on the Kyiv-Sharm el-Sheikh charter line, and from March 19 on the Kyiv-Marsa-Alam line.
Bees Airline will work on charter flights ordered by tour operators and performing regular flights. The base airport of the air carrier will be Kyiv (Zhulyany).
Now a similar concept in the Ukrainian market is used by the SkyUp airline.
