In the upcoming 17 weeks a total of 21 aircraft will be allocated to its European bases, supporting 700 additional weekly departures and the commencement of 70 new services. Four brand new destinations – Athens, Tallinn, Kharkiv, Vienna – will be inaugurated by mid-July, along with the opening of a new Western European base in the Austrian capital.
