FlyOne, a privately owned LCC from Moldova, launched flights between its Chisinau (KIV) base and Venice Marco Polo (VCE) on 31 October, the airline’s third Italian destination after Parma and Verona. The 1,281-kilometre link will be flown twice-weekly (Mondays and Fridays) on the airline’s A320s. According to ch-aviation, FlyOne currently has three of the type in its fleet. The link to Venice will face direct competition from Air Moldova’s thrice-weekly link according to OAG schedules. With this launch, it brings to six the number of routes FlyOne operates (based on w/c 1 November). Along with the Italian connections, it also links Chisinau to Barcelona, Dublin and Moscow Domodedovo. Looking further into FlyOne’s short history – having launched in June – it has operated flights to Antalya, Heraklion, Lisbon, London Stansted, Rhodes, St. Petersburg and Voronezh in S16. According to OAG schedules, flights to St. Petersburg and Lisbon will return in December for a short New Year stint before regular schedules commence for S17, with flights to Voronezh also returning for the New Year break. Looking ahead to S17, the airline will add five new routes to its Chisinau network, namely Birmingham, Milan Malpensa, Rome Fiumicino, Valencia and Moscow Sheremetyevo.
