Closure of Dnepropetrovsk Airport – Austrian Airlines diverts flights to Zaporizhia
Tuesday 4, May 2010
Austrian Airlines is changing its flight schedule to Ukraine from 1 May 2010, as the approach runway at Dnepropetrovsk Airport is being rebuilt and the airport is closed.
From 1 May onwards, Austrian Airlines will be flying to Zaporizhia Airport, approximately 70 kilometres away from Dnepropetrovsk. The measure means it will still be possible for Austrian to provide daily flights to this region.
Passengers who have already booked flights are currently being contacted by Austrian Airlines. Instead of their originally planned journey, they will now be flown to Zaporizhia, from where Austrian Airlines will also organise a bus transfer to Dnepropetrovs. Alternatively, passengers will also be offered the option of travelling with Austrian Airlines to Kharkiv or Donetsk, should they so wish.
The Austrian flights to the Ukrainian cities of Kiev, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Lviv and Odessa are unaffected by the changes.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
