Airport “Uzhgorod” on March 15 will resume accepting flight after a three year break

Аэропорт "Ужгород" 15 марта возобновит прием рейсов после трехлетнего перерыва

The first is the direction Uzhhorod-Kiev.

Airline “Motor Sich”, since March 15, starts to perform flights on the route Kiev-Uzhgorod.

A message carrier has posted on his official page in Facebook.

Thus confirmed earlier released information that the airport “Uzhgorod” will resume in mid-March, reports DTN.

It is worth noting that on the website of the airline Uzhgorod is not yet in the flight schedule.

However, the journalist Vitaly Verb informs that the flights will be operated once a week on Fridays. The price of tickets will vary 699-3500 UAH one way.

“Motor Sich” started operating regular flights on the Kyiv-Uzhgorod in 2013. In 2016, the company interrupted flights for two months, then resumed, but in the end, in the same year, Uzhgorod airport stopped to take regular flights.

The reason was that on 16 June 2016 expired intergovernmental agreement between Ukraine and the Slovak Republic on transferring responsibility for ensuring servicing of air traffic and operation of the airport Uzhgorod. The fact that the airport “Uzhgorod” is located in immediate proximity to the Slovakian border for takeoff and landing in Uzhgorod flights must enter the airspace of Slovakia.
