New Route of the Day (23 September 2021): SkyUp Airlines between Kiev KBP and Prague

KBP - PRG

On 23 September, SkyUp Airlines began 3-weekly service on the 1,180-kilometre route between Kiev KBP and Prague. The inaugural service (flight number PQ 891 operated by a Boeing 737-700, registration UR-SQD) departed Kiev KBP at 19:32 and touched down in Prague one hour and 51 minutes later at 20:23 local time. The return flight (PQ 892) departed the Czech capital at 21:23 and landed back in Ukraine one hour and 44 minutes later at 00:07 local time, the following day, according to flightradar24.com. Flights are set to operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Competition on the route comes from CSA Czech Airlines which offers 11-weekly service on the route and Ukraine International Airlines, which is flying E190s on the route 4-weekly. Prior to its demise in 2013, Ukrainian carrier Aerosvit also connected the two airports.

SkyUp’s constantly evolving network

Due to travel restrictions, SkyUp’s schedule has been very dynamic this summer. Many routes that the airline had planned to operate for the first time (notably to destinations in Germany, Greece and Italy) appear to have been scrapped, or at least delayed until next summer. With all those changes, the airline’s schedule data submitted to Cirium is considered unreliable, so here’s what is bookable on the airline’s website from Kiev KBP.
