Meet SkyUp – the newborn Ukrainian airline
SkyUp – a new Ukrainian carrier – has recently announced its establishment in Kyiv. According to CFTS, the airline will start operations with four Boeing 737-800NG aircraft, with plans to expand the fleet to twelve planes by 2022.
“Initially, our fleet will comprise four Boeing 737-800NG aircraft,” Eugeny Hainacky, CEO of SkyUp told journalists in Kiev. “In the future, we will expand our fleet, including new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft”.
The carrier intends to lease the MAXs in 2-3 years.
The airline will start operations in April, initially offering chartered flights to popular Mediterranean destinations from Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and Odessa. Starting from summer 2017 the company will also start regional intra-Ukrainian flights.
SkyUp was registered in June 2017 in Kyiv. The carrier was established by ACS-Ukraine, a company primarily working in the field of booking and ticket sales. The same company controls JoinUp, a tour organizer. The company is 100% owned by Ukrainian investors.
In 2018, the company is aiming to carry 650,000 passengers. A large part of this number will probably come from the sister company JoinUp.
