Pushing a plan to create a national airline for Ukraine,

Thursday, August 19, 2021

President Zelenskiy met yesterday in Kyiv with Marc Rochet, CEO of Aerogestion, a Paris-based airline consultancy. Noting the modernization of regional airports, Zelenskiy said a regional airline would boost domestic tourism. Two months ago, Kirylo Tymoshenko, deputy presidential chief of staff, said the airline would be based on Antonov An-148, a regional jet capable of seating 68-85 passengers. For Zelenskiy to meet his self-imposed deadline to create a national airline by the end of this year, he would have to buy an existing airline. A leading candidate would be Ihor Kolomoisky’s Windrose, which flies to 12 Ukrainian cities.
