Thanks to more frequent international flights, the total number of departures in January has also increased by 2%.

Next months, we expect even more active interest for international and domestic flights, primarily due to the expansion of the route map. In March, Ernest Airlines opens flights to Rome and Milan. In May, Buta Airways launches flights to Baku. In June, SkyUp Airlines launches new domestic flights Kharkiv-Odessa. In September, Wizz Air, in addition to existing flights, opens flights to Krakow.
