Airlines airBaltic to extend partnership with Ukraine International
airBaltic has released, that it plans to extend the existing partnership with Ukraine International Airlines.
Airline airBaltic has announced, that it will extend its codeshare agreement with Ukraine International Airlines as of March 28. Then, passengers will have more options while travelling from Vilnius to Kyiv and beyond.
Since 2013, airBaltic and Ukraine International have been working together over the course of a codeshare agreement on the route between the Riga and Kyiv hubs. For the upcoming summer season, airBaltic will continue to operate direct flights between Vilnius and Kyiv.
Two times a week, the airline will connect the Lithuanian capital with the Ukrainian, using state-of-the-art Airbus A220-300 aircraft. In June, the flights will be increased to three a week. On all flights, the marketing codes will be placed to allow customers to benefit from a more seamless travelling experience.
The airlines hope, that especially after the Covid-19 crisis, the demand for air travel between the cities will increase. Passengers will be able to book flights directly via only one website and can use the international network of Ukraine International. This allows for a seamless travel experience, as the baggage will be checked through.
This latest expanded cooperation underlines both airlines´ ambitions to grow their networks and to strengthen their partnership with each other. In these difficult circumstances, it is a further evidence for the trust in a positive market development until summer.
To make travelling as safe as possible, airBaltic issued following statement: “Passengers are strongly suggested to check the travel regulations and airport restrictions on the official websites or with local embassies before travelling. Regulations are changing rapidly and vary per country, therefore always make sure you have the latest information to have a smooth journey.”
airBaltic has become a carrier with one of the most modern aircraft fleets in Europe. The airline is operating with 25 Airbus A220-300 aircraft, after phasing out older Boeing 737 and Dash-8 aircraft. airBaltic was founded in 1995 and is primarily owned by the Latvian State, which holds 96.14% of the stock.
Ukraine International Airlines is the flag-carrier airline of Ukraine and has its main operational hub at Kyiv´s Boryspil International Airport. The fleet consists of 17 Boeing 737s, two 767s, one 777 and seven Embraer ERJ-190s.
