Aigle Azur launched operations between Paris Orly and Kiev Boryspil on 18 April, with the Ukrainian Airport giving the airline a warming welcome reception upon arrival of the first flight. The carrier will offer a three times weekly service between the two European capital cities using its fleet of A320s. No other airline serves the airport pair.
- Aigle Azur launched flights between Paris Orly (ORY) and Kiev Boryspil (KBP) on 18 April. The carrier will serve the 2,055-kilometre European capital connection three times weekly using its fleet of A320s. “We do believe there is a strong opportunity in terms of development between Ukraine and France,” commented Frantz Yvelin, President of Aigle Azur. “The first direct flights between Paris Orly and Kiev opens up new prospects for passengers – both for travelling between our countries, and also further – all over the world, since Aigle Azur and all our airline partners offer a large panel of connectivity options to different regions ranging from Portugal and Algeria to Brazil.” While no other operator links the two airports, it should be noted that indirect competition comes from Ukraine International Airlines and Air France, with the flag carriers of Ukraine and France each offering a twice-daily service between Boryspil and Paris CDG.
