Moldovan airline FlyOne starts operations
A Moldovan start-up private airline low-cost carrier (LCC) FlyOne has launched operations and will soon start flying from Chisinau to Voronezh.
Three weekly flights from Moldovan capital to the Russian city 530 km to the south-west of Moscow will be operated within the summer schedule on an Airbus A320. There has been no direct connection between the two cities so far, Voronezh Airport authorities told Russian Aviation Insider. The appropriate agreement was reached at a meeting between Fly One and the Civil Aviation Authorities of Moldova.
FlyOne also announced its intentions to start flying to Moscow and St. Petersburg. According to RTR Moldova TV network, four weekly flights to St. Petersburg will commence on June 21, with fares starting at 75 euros. Tickets to Moscow will be priced from 55 euros, but no launch date has been set yet.
The new carrier plans to begin regular operations on June 8. Its route network has 11 destinations in Europe, including Verona, Parma, Barcelona, London, Lisbon and Dublin. The tickets will be sold on the airline’s web-site and through global distribution systems (GDS) Amadeus and Sirena Travel.
FlyOne received its Air Operator Certificate in late March. The airline has been operating charter flights to Antalia, Iraklion and Rhodes, in Greece, since April. Its fleet consists of two Airbus A320s. “In special cases we’ll use an additional aircraft,” the carrier’s general director Nicu-Adrian Berla commented. According to open sources, Berla is a professional pilot from Romania, who owns 20% of FlyOne.
