The low-cost carrier will fly between Skavsta and one of the oldest cities in Europe.
Ryanair has announced a new route from Stockholm Skavsta Airport to Kiev in Ukraine, beginning in October. This comes after plans to fly there were cancelled last year.
The Ukrainian capital, located on the Dnieper River in the northern part of the country, is one of the oldest cities in Europe with around 3 million inhabitants.
Ryanair points out in a press release issued on Friday that in Kiev “you can find extraordinary architecture with golden domes and countless churches, boulevards and malls, a vibrant culture and nightlife, as well as many green parks, cosy cafés and amazing restaurants”.
Good for Skavsta
Peter Steinmetz, managing director of Stockholm Skavsta, is delighted with the news.
“Kiev fits nicely in Skavsta’s destination network in Central Europe and has great potential for destination and thru-traffic,” he said. “The three times weekly frequencies will also guarantee efficient connection possibilities for business travel.”
The route will be operated three days a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from October 31.
