Turkish Airlines will begin operating a new flight to Ukraine from Istanbul by the end of the year, the flag carrier said on Dec. 4, as reported by Anadolu Agency. 

The service to Zaporizhia, a city in the south of the country that sits on the Dnieper River, will run four times a week from Dec. 28, the company said.

“With existing services to Kyiv, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Lviv and Kherson, Turkish Airlines now adds Zaporizhia, one of the largest cities in Ukraine, to its expanding network,” the airline said in a statement, as quoted by Anadolu Agency. 

Introductory fares will start at $149 from Istanbul to Zaporizhia and $139, including taxes and fees, for travelers heading to Turkey.

Meanwhile, the company has recently firmed a commitment for the purchase of 20 additional A321neo aircraft.

The airline already has 72 A321neo on order and is now again renewing its confidence in the A321neo as the aircraft of choice to boost its expansion.
