DATA SPOTLIGHT: Windrose Airlines

This year The Blue Swan Daily will feature some of the leading airlines, airports and country markets for air travel. Here, using the extensive profile insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot, we look at Windrose Airlines, a Ukrainian carrier that brings some colour to Eastern European skies.

The carrier has been less impacted by the Covid-19 crisis due to the shape of its network and is now expanding its domestic operations following the recent arrival of its first ATR 72-600.

The aircraft is the first of eight turboprops that Windrose Airlines plans to introduce to its previously all-jet fleet and which will be used to build a domestic scheduled network with Ukraine linking the nation’s six largest cities – Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa, Nikolayev, Dnipro and Kharkiv. They will ultimately replace the carrier’s small fleet of five ERJ-145 regional regional jets and will also be deployed on some shorter international routes.
