PHOTOS: Windrose inaugurates Belgrade service

NEWS FLASH


Ukrainian carrier Windrose Airlines launched flights between Kiev and Belgrade yesterday, connecting the two cities following a nine-month hiatus. The flights will run twice per week with the 49-seat Embraer E145 jet, operated under the Dniproavia brand which has been merged into Windrose. The airline fills the void left by Air Serbia, which suspended operations to Ukraine in March until the summer of 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Meanwhile, Ukrainian low cost carrier SkyUp Airlines has announced it will introduce services between Kiev and Belgrade during the 2021 summer which begins on March 28 of next year. The carrier will commence operations on March 30 and run two weekly flights, each Tuesday and Friday, with the 189-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

    Anyone know the loads? Since they didn't publish them I guess they were bad.

      Interesting how we got the numbers for ZAG and TGD in both directions and for KBP-SKP which were all great but no info on SKP-KBP and BEG in both directions.

    4. All passenger numbers were based on press releases issued by airports. Unfortunately, there was no press release for yesterday's launch.

    Idk if having 3 carriers to Kyiv work out. SkyUp will be the cheapest but I think there is more of a transfer traffic rather than P2P.

    Windrose applied for license to operate KBP-JFK. With many new lines Windrose recently opened to BEG and ExYu region, could there be plans to offer Windrose connecting flights from BEG to JFK?

      Depends what Windrose goal is. They can't profitably compete but they can try to do the damage.

      Technically speaking, Windrose fleet is almost as big as JU. They also have 3 A321s and 3 future orders. This airline seems to be quite serious.

    Would be cool if they launch LWO-BEG. I remember airport CEO said there was demand from tour operators. This plane fits perfectly.

      Govt of Serbia has Embraer Legacy 600, very close to E145.
