The eventful August flew by like a shot. Look into our news digest to know what we managed to do and what results we have achieved.
August in figures
In August, we operated 2,237 flights*. In total, we transported 374,189 passengers*.
Opened a new destination for Ukrainians
In early August, for the first time in the history of Ukraine, we launched direct regular flights to Saudi Arabia: from Kyiv to Dammam, Riyadh, and Jeddah, and from Lviv to Dammam. On our flights, we transported more than 6,000 passengers*.
Establishing tourism with the countries of the Arabian Gulf is one of the priority vectors for the development of inbound tourism in Ukraine, so next year we plan to at least resume the flight schedule for this destination, and to expand it in the future.
For skiing — to Austrian Salzburg, for a trip to the ocean — Zanzibar
In October, we're resuming Kyiv — Zanzibar flights, and in December we'll start operating flights on the Kyiv — Salzburg route. Tropical nature instead of autumn rains and winter frosts or active holidays in the Austrian Alps, choose appropriate dates and book your tickets now on skyup.aero.
Resuming favorite European holiday destinations
From romantic strolls through the streets of Paris, trips on the legendary tram in Lisbon, visiting the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona to the waterfront of Nice, the beaches of Tenerife, and the colorful houses of Alicante — in August, we launched flights from Kyiv to European destinations, which our passengers miss so much. In addition, a convenient flight schedule allows you to plan your trip so that you can visit several cities in France or Spain at once: fly to one and return home from another.
Expanded fleet with two airplanes
In August, we received our 13th and 14th aircraft. Both are medium-haul Boeing 737-800 NGs for 189 passengers. Now the airline's fleet includes two Boeing 737-700 NGs with 149 seats, eight Boeing 737-800 NGs with 189 seats and four Boeing 737-900ER NGs with 215 seats.

SkyUp has an official soundtrack
Upon the presentation of the new uniform, the collaboration with Max Barskih and the Badoev ID Agency became the next organic stage in the airline's well-thought-out and global changes. Very soon, Max Barskih's new single Just Fly will meet SkyUp passengers all over the world.
This song and music video is not only about the joy of travel, but also about the love of life, the ability to enjoy every day, not to be afraid to be yourself and give yourself up to fully realize your dreams, turning your everyday routine into an exciting adventure. We believe that Just Fly soundtrack will help us return the very thirst and pleasure from adventure and travel that we began to lose due to the pandemic, and begin every journey with a smile and a positive mood.
