SkyUp launches transcontinental flights from Europe: details
Starting in mid-December, SkyUp plans to increase the frequency of flights on the Warsaw-Zanzibar route and launch a new Katowice-Zanzibar flight. The airline currently operates flights to Zanzibar from Bucharest, Chisinau, and Warsaw.
The flight program to Zanzibar will run until April 12, 2024. This route is operated by a medium-haul Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which, not having sufficient range for direct flights, makes an intermediate stopover for refueling at Hurghada Airport in Egypt.
The operator of all flights, except for the Chisinau-Zanzibar route, is the Maltese SkyUp MT unit, while the Ukrainian SkyUp operates the route.
Tickets for SkyUp flights from Europe to Zanzibar can only be purchased as part of a travel package, as the airline does not sell tickets separately without a travel service.
As you know, in October 2023, SkyUp received permission to operate flights to Canada, including a FAOC certificate, which allows it to provide ACMI services and operate charter flights from other countries to Canada.
