Ukrainian carrier SkyUp Airlines is continuing efforts to maintain whatever operations it can manage under the pressures of the country’s armed conflict.
The airline says it carried out 38 wet-lease services and 19 charter and humanitarian flights during April.
SkyUp transported nearly 6,000 passengers during the month, it adds, delivering nearly 65t of freight.
Over 5,000 passengers were carried on the wet-lease flights.
SkyUp says it operated routes from the Turkish cities of Istanbul and Antalya to Split, Athens, and Gdansk, as well as services such as Chisinau-Tel Aviv and Lisbon-Warsaw.
It managed six cargo flights – from Tel Aviv to Lublin and Chisinau, and Lisbon-Warsaw – with defence clothing, medicine, hygiene supplies and food.
SkyUp says that up to 40% of its team is involved in full- or part-time work through the various co-operation projects.
It has a fleet of 15 aircraft – a mix of nine Boeing 737-800s, four -900ERs and two -700s – which it is offering for wet-lease.
