Wizz Air увеличила киевскую базу Wizz Air increased the Kiev base at Zhulyany Airport to four Airbus A320 airliners.

Thus, the number of aircraft based in Ukraine reached the pre-crisis figure of 2013, when a subsidiary, Wizz Air Ukraine, based three A320s in Zhulyany and one A320 at Donetsk airport.

In the spring of 2014, the Ukrainian low-cost planned to import the fifth A320 to Ukraine for base in Lviv.

Simultaneously with the increase in the Zhulyany base, the air carrier opened three new routes from the Ukrainian capital.

From March 1, the low-cost launched flights Kiev-Bremen with a frequency of twice a week on Mondays and Fridays, from March 2 began to fly from Kiev to Billund (Billund) twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and from Kiev to Riga three times in week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Two of the three open routes – Kiev-Billund and Kiev-Bremen – are new for the Ukrainian market – previously direct flights were not performed on them.

On the Kiev-Riga line, Wizz Air will increase competition. Previously, two airlines operated flights on this route – UIA and airBaltic.
