New airline to conduct flights in Ukraine
A new Ukrainian airline company, Yanair (code IATA: YE, ICAO: ANR), will start performing flights from Kyiv to Chernivtsi in early September, a company representative has told the avianews.com website.
"The company has already received the certificate of the operator. The airline will operate at Zhuliany Airport in Kyiv," reads the statement.
At the first stage Yanair fleet will consist of two Saab 340 aircraft. One of the aircraft, with hull number UR-YAB, has already been included in the State Register of Civil Aircraft of Ukraine.
The sale of tickets through global booking systems on the Kyiv-Chernivtsi route will begin in about a week or two. According to a Yanair representative, the airline plans to develop domestic routes in Ukraine. However, he did not specify the details.
According to the flight tracking website Flightstats, Donetsk, Mariupol and Odesa are also among the airline's possible destinations.
