Ukraine’s air travel market is hardly flooded with low-cost airline companies, but there are at least six operating here now. The list includes Wizz Air, Vueling Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, Air Arabia, Air One and Carpatair. Most of them fly from Kyiv to the carrier’s home city, and in some cases to other destinations.

Low-cost airlines’ economy prices pair with typical bargain features such as having one passenger class, no or minimal additional services on board and often non-refundable tickets.

“Budget airlines have certain limitations. In particular, a refund is usually possible only in the case of cancellation of flight,” says airline lawyer Andriy Guk. “The ticket is only valid for a specific date and time, and the passenger has to pay for re-booking. Legally, passengers must be notified about those restrictions before purchasing the ticket.”
