Azur Air Ukraine to double its long-haul fleet
Leisure charter specialist Azur Air Ukraine is to double its long-haul fleet in 2019 by adding two Boeing 767-300 wide-bodies, the airline’s general director Karen Antonov revealed in his address to passengers in the latest (March) issue of the airline’s in-flight magazine.
The aircraft, which are scheduled to join the fleet in mid-April in time for the high season will, for the first time, feature a business-class section. Until now, Azur Air Ukraine has offered economy-class service only.
“Finally, business-class service will be offered on charter flights from Ukraine and passengers on flights to Antalya, Dalaman, Sharm-El-Sheikh, Tunis and Barcelona will have the opportunity to travel in [enhanced] comfort,” Antonov adds.
Azur Air Ukraine, along with Russian-based Azur Air as well as the now defunct Azur Air Germany, all share the same Turkish owner. The carrier currently operates a fleet of two 189-seat Boeing 737-800s and two 330-seat Boeing 767-300s on both medium- and long-haul charter flights on behalf of the Turkey-based Anex Tour travel company.
