WINDROSE airlines expands program of domestic flights in Ukraine
From June 2020, the Ukrainian airline WINDROSE launched a program of domestic flights within Ukraine. A transportation network began from six largest Ukrainian cities. However, in almost a year of existence, the flight map has already extended to 12 points: Kyiv, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Odesa, Kherson, Zaporizhia, and Mykolaiv. Flights to Uzhgorod, Kryvy Rih and Chernivtsi will start next week. And, judging by the fact that the number of cities and new flights is growing, the program is in demand among Ukrainians.
Interestingly, just a few months after the opening of flights within Ukraine, WINDROSE was the first to introduce a fare card in aviation. In Europe, this is a fairly common type of tickets, but we have such an offer for the first time. Earlier in the comments for the media, Commercial Director of WINDROSE Olha Tolstykhina noted that the program of domestic flights has not yet reached a break-even level. Taking into account the situation with the pandemic and the economic situation in general. Therefore, are aviation fare cards relevant in general? The press service of the company provided us with a comment regarding the sales of the fare cards. With the beginning of the summer season, they began to be advertised much more actively. Now there are three types of them: from 10 to 499 flights. The fare for one flight is $ 51, and the certificate itself is valid for a year.
The benefits are as follows:
❖ the cost of the ticket is fixed, so you do not overpay closer to the departure date;
❖ there are no restrictions on the booking period. The flight is available to booking until check-in for the flight;
❖ the flight using the fare card can be performed by the persons included in the list when ordering an airline fare card. The identification is the mobile phone number of the owner of the fare card.
Of course, such an offer is beneficial for those who travel frequently - business trips, the family in another city or even for health issues. Sometimes a medical specialist may be in another city, but consultations are needed several times. Also, for the year of the pandemic, domestic tourism has developed significantly and Ukrainians began to travel more within the home country. Therefore, there are many options for how to save money and travel more comfortably.
