Closure of Dnepropetrovsk Airport – Austrian Airlines diverts flights to Zaporizhia


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.
