Brussels Airlines will relaunch the route to Kiev from December 16. That route was established by the company in 2018 but already died before the corona crisis in November 2019. Ukraine International, which used to fly to Brussels up to twice a day, has canceled the route for the time being.
From December 16, Brussels Airlines will again fly to Ukraine. The airline will fly from Brussels to the Ukrainian capital Kiev every Thursday and Saturday. The flights are currently only loaded for the winter season. It is not clear whether the route will also be maintained in the summer.
In October 2018, together with Brussels Airlines, Kyiv as a new destination on its route network. The route was shut down in November 2019, when the airline was operating four flights, due to network optimization.
Ukraine International, which at some point before the crisis flew up to 10 times a week between Brussels and Kiev with an afternoon flight and sometimes early morning, is currently no longer flying to Brussels. Also, it currently does not appear that Brussels Airlines is planning to rejoin the route network anytime soon, an important factor in Brussels Airlines’ decision to restart the route.
