Resumption of Wizz Air UkraineThe prospects for the resumption of the Ukrainian unit of Wizz Air depends on Brexit and how it will affect the signing of an open space agreement between Ukraine and the EU, Vladislav Airport Commercial Director for Aviation said in an interview with Depo. Ilyin.

“If this does happen, Wizz Air will postpone the resumption of the subsidiary for an indefinite period. Because they will have the opportunity to develop many European markets from Ukraine”, Ilyin explained.

According to him, sooner or later low-cost will open all the routes and Europe that he wants, and then, possibly, resume the work of his daughter. A subsidiary will allow Wizz Air to fly not only to Europe, but also from Ukraine to the UAE, Georgia and other countries that are not covered by the agreement on a common aviation space with the EU.

In 2014, after the outbreak of hostilities in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea, Wizz Air Ukraine reduced its fleet to two units. In April 2015, the Ukrainian state employee completely stopped all flights. The parent company took over the flight on some routes.

On November 21, 2018, the head of Wizz Air, Jozsef Varadi, met with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko. “The meeting participants discussed the legislative, regulatory and economic conditions necessary for reaching final agreements within the framework of a long-term business proposal. Based on the meeting results and subject to the above conditions, Wizz Air Ukraine has a goal to obtain a license for the Ukrainian air carrier as early as next year, 2019, ”the airline said in a statement.

Currently, all flights under the Wizz Air brand from Ukraine are operated by the fleet of the Hungarian division of Wizz Air Hungary and its UK subsidiary Wizz Air UK.
