Dniproavia to start a new route to Vienna on April 30 after restrictive sanctions are lifted

Dniproavia Airways (Dniproavia National Aircompany) (Dnipropetrovsk) will start a new route between Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine and Vienna, Austria on April 30. Scheduled flights to the capital of Austria will be operated three times a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with Embraer ERJ 145 aircraft.

Because of the loss of the Black Sea resorts in the Crimea, Dniproavia Airways is also developing new routes for the summer, offering alternative Black Sea resorts.

Starting on April 27, 2014 Dniproavia Airways starts direct scheduled flights between Dnipropetrovsk and Georgian cities of Tbilisi and Batumi.

Dniproavia Airways also starts a new route between Dnipropetrovsk and Istanbul on April 28, 2014.

Direct flights will be operated on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Flights en route Dnipropetrovsk -Tbilisi will be operated on Sundays:

Dniproavia is also planning a program of regular flights to the resorts in Bulgaria – from Dnepropetrovsk to both Bourgas and Varna.

The airline had previously ceased all operations on January 8, 2013 but managed to resume partial operations on February 1, 2013. The airline resumed full operations on April 2, 2014 after sanctions were lifted by the government although some routes are limited due to the current tensions in the eastern portion of the Ukraine and the Crimea which is now controlled by Russia.

The airline issued this statement:

Specific sanctions which have been applied to the Dniproavia since November 2013. According to the order of Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, the sanctions are now lifted.

Tax Notices, which became the basis to seek special sanctions – introduction of individual licensing regime of international business activities – had been recognized by the Court as illegal and were canceled. Nevertheless, the special sanctions had been applying to the Dniproavia Airways for five months, which had hampered greatly the economic activities of the Company: performance of daily payments in foreign currency for spare parts and components, airport services and air navigation, fueling, passenger handling. Also, as a result of the abovementioned sanctions customs clearance of the aircraft components was almost blocked.

Special sanctions applied to Dniproavia are lifted by the Order of Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, dated April 2, 2014.

Thus, since April 2, 2014, Dniproavia has recommenced its normal operating activities.
