Wizz Air, the
low-cost carrier in Ukraine, has applied for 18 newly vacant routes, including
the most lucrative ones of Tel Aviv, Istanbul, Dubai, Moscow, St. Petersburg
Akosh Bush, head
of Wizz Air Ukraine says the company expects the decision of the State Aviation
Service within weeks.
“Because of the bankruptcy
of Aerosvit, there is a possibility that the Ukrainian market will be further
monopolizing, which would not benefit consumers… Ukrainian passengers had to
put up with high prices and frequent cancellations of flights of some Ukrainian
companies. And the threat of the creation of a monopoly, which exists now, can
lead to further prices increases for the limited supply (of flights),” Bush
said during a press conference on Jan 22 in Kyiv.
