Europe’s largest airline Ryanair will introduce flights from Kyiv to five additional European destinations from April 2019. The airline will add services to Dublin, Manchester, Athens, Sofia and Paphos in Cyprus, taking the total number of destinations available via Ryanair from Ukraine to 22 in 11 countries. This expansion of Ukraine services comes just weeks after the airline first began flying from Kyiv and Lviv.

Ryanair officials are also in talks with Kharkiv, Kherson and Odesa airports with a view to launching services in 2019. The airline has announced plans to invest USD 1.5 billion in Ukraine over the next three to five years, expanding its fleet to fifteen planes and targeting annual passenger traffic of five million.
