UIA to replace Wizz Air on Kyiv-Venice route

In the summer season of 2016, Ukrainian International Airlines will reopen flight Kyiv-Venice, closed by the Wizz Air low-coster.

The flights are to take place as on 27 March 2016. The schedule provides for departures from Kyiv to Venice on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 08:00 pm with return from Venice to Kyiv on the next day – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 04:50 am.

The cost of roundtrip air tickets starts from 5,400 UAH. Alternative options of travelling from Kyiv to Venice with transfers in the airports of Europe will come to $210.

For a few years, low-coster Wizz Air Ukraine had been flying between Kyiv and Venice. However, in April 2015, it stopped the flights. Wizz Air flew to Treviso Airport 40.5 km from the city. UIA will open flights to Marco Polo Airport, located closer to Venice (14 km).
