SkyUp optimizes its flight program to Italy and Israel

11 Mar 2020

With respect to the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, as well as the tightening of measures to limit it by various countries, including Italy and Israel, SkyUp Airlines has been reducing its flight program to these countries. For some destinations, the start of the flight program is postponed to the beginning of summer, and for another the number of flights will be reduced. The air carrier provides a free procedure for changing the date or getting a refund for an unused trip.

Restrictive measures in Israel and Italy

From the evening of 12 March, Israel imposes restrictions on foreigners arriving in the country. Entry will be permitted only to those who confirm the ability to provide 14-day home quarantine.

Since 10 March, due to a sharp outbreak of the coronavirus cases, Italy has imposed a ban on public gatherings, sporting events have been canceled, moving around the country is allowed only for proven needs.

We understand that such enhanced security measures can be a good reason for our passengers to refrain from traveling to these countries. Given the overall decrease in travel demand as the epidemic spreads, SkyUp Airlines is making temporary changes to its flight programs to Italy and Israel.
