In February of 2018, 53.4 thousand people used the services of the Kharkiv International Airport. This is 33% higher than in February of last year figure when the passenger traffic was 40 thousand.
The share of international flights also increased, reaching 74% of the total number of flights. In February of 2017, this figure stood at 70%. The most popular destinations are still Istanbul (Pegasus, Turkish Airlines, Atlasglobal), Kyiv (UIA), Sharm El-Sheikh (Windrose, Azur Air Ukraine, Bravo Airways, YanAir, UIA), Warsaw (LOT), Tel Aviv (UIA), Minsk (Belavia).
In 2018, we expect that the list of popular flights will expand. We already can report on the opening of a number of new international directions. Three directions are opening in April. The airline “UIA” launches direct flights Kharkiv‒Milan. Georgian Airways — direct flights to Tbilisi. Low Cost-Carrier Wizz Air — direct flights to Dortmund. In June, Wizz Air will also launch flights to Katowice.
Fresh news from Wizz Air was a message about the opening of another direction from Kharkiv. The company launches direct flights Kharkiv‒Vienna from November 25th, 2018.
Except for new flights, the frequency of usual flights will increase. In June, the frequency of flights to Warsaw will grow from 9 to 11 per week. The popularity of these flights has been growing for the second year. Would like to remind that until October of 2016, the carrier LOT was making only five weekly flights to the Polish capital.
