New flights from Lviv will be operated to:
- Barcelona: from March 27, 2 times a week;
- Brussels (Charleroi): from 27 March, twice a week;
- Gdansk: from March 27, 3 times a week;
- Nuremberg: from March 30, 2 times a week;
- Stockholm (Arlanda): from March 27, 2 times a week;
Zagreb: from March 27, 2 times a week.
In its statement, Ryanair points out that the launching of new flights was enabled due to the signing of an open skies agreement between the European Union and Ukraine. However, this document allowed the low-cost carrier to open only one new route from the airports of Ukraine – to the budget airport in Brussels – Charleroi. For the rest of the new routes, Ryanair could launch flights earlier within the existing agreements.
It will be recalled that in December 2021, the airline cancelled flights from Lviv in six directions for the period from 10 to 31 January.
In September, Ryanair announced plans for significant expansion in Ukraine, but even after the signing of the Open Skies Agreement in October, there were no major announcements of new flights from the Irish low-cost carrier. In October-December, Ryanair announced 7 new flights from Ukraine to be launched in 2022. Among them, Lviv – Nuremberg – a new direction from Ryanair, which should start in March 2022.
