The carrier will serve its newest city from Odessa (ODS), a 900-kilometre sector that it will initially operate twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Fridays), before a third weekly rotation (Sundays) is added to the schedules from 15 July. The airline will use its fleet of 737-300s on the route, of which it presently has two in its fleet, along with two 737-400s and one A321.
