Atlasglobal Ukraine Airlines, a subsidiary of Istanbul based Atlasglobal, is fighting for the right to fly over Ukrainian air for a year. The commission of the State Aviation Service of Ukraine approved assignments to six routes for Atlasjet Ukraine at a meeting on June, 9. The routes are: Lviv-Moscow (Russia), Lviv-Madrid (Spain), Odesa-Moscow, Kherson-Istanbul (Turkey), Zaporizhia –Istanbul and Kyiv-Kutaisi (Georgia).

The carrier got permissions without competition, but it was not enough for full start of the project. On June 18 the Atlasglobal Ukraine made only demonstration flight on the route Kyiv-Lviv-Kyiv.

On July 26 the commission of the State Aviation Service of Ukraine granted the airline’s application to several international routes: Lviv- Istanbul, Kharkiv-Istanbul, Vinnytsia- Istanbul, Kiev-Moscow, Kiev- St. Petersburg, Kiev-Erbil (Iraq), Kiev- Larnaca (Cyprus), Kiev - Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan), Odessa-Vilnius (Lithuania), Odessa-Istanbul, Kyiv-Tbilisi (Georgia), Kiev-Madrid, Odessa-Batumi (Georgia), Odessa-Tbilisi, Odessa-Milan (Italy).

The airline was denied assignments to the Vinnytsia-Tel Aviv, Dusseldorf- Kiev and Kiev-Luton routes for lack of free frequencies. The Commission also postponed consideration of the application on routes: Kyiv-Naples, Naples-Lviv, Odessa-Milan, Milan-Kyiv, Odessa-Naples.

Turkey’s low cost carrier Pegasus Airlines is already flying between Kharkiv and Istanbul that may rise a competition between two carriers.
