Milan Bergamo celebrates anniversary with Ukraine International Airlines


Joining Milan Bergamo Airport’s airline roll call last April, Ukraine International Airlines launched its third service almost a year to the day since its inaugural flight to the Italian gateway. Adding a twice-weekly link to Kharkiv on 27 April, the Ukrainian flag carrier’s latest operation was welcomed the same day the airline’s seasonal service to Chernivtsi restarted.

As Milan Bergamo celebrates its fifth link to Ukraine, the airport has experienced a significant boost of onward connections via the airlines’ hub at Kiev Boryspil. Providing Bergamo’s catchment area with access to the airline’s domestic network, as well as significant long-haul connectivity, the first 12 months has shown the top 10 connecting destinations being: Beijing; Odessa; Minsk; Chernivtsi; Kharkiv; Lviv; Tel Aviv; New York JFK; Zaporozhye; and Ivano-Frankovsk. Additionally the top 10 connecting countries recorded as: Ukraine; China; Belarus; Israel; US; Georgia; Cyprus; Armenia; Finland; and Sri Lanka. Joining Ernest’s services to Lviv and Kiev Zhulyany, Ukraine International Airlines’ three links to Ukraine secure the country’s position as the 11th largest country market to be served from Milan Bergamo. Recording over 6% passenger traffic growth in the first quarter of the year, the new connection to the Eastern European nation will further enhance the airport’s ongoing development.
