- Air Moldova now connects Chisinau (KIV) with Geneva (GVA). The Moldovan carrier began a twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) service between the two cities on 15 December, a 1,738-kilometre route that the airline will serve using a mixture of its A319s and E190s according to OAG schedules. Facing no direct competition, this becomes the only direct link between Moldova and Switzerland. This year, Air Moldova will have operated 1.49 million seats to/from Chisinau, a 17% increase versus the 1.27 million it flew in 2016. Along with Geneva, new destinations on Air Moldova’s network in 2017 include Dubai, a route inaugurated in November, and Krasnodar which started towards the beginning of this year’s summer season.
