Wizz Air now flies to Kharkiv in Ukraine. The Hungarian airline will fly directly from Berlin-Schönefeld twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays, to the city in north-east Ukraine. Another new destination, Tirana, will be added on 15 July. There will be flights to Albania’s capital every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Both destinations are currently particularly interesting for business travellers and ethnic transport.
With a population of around 1.5 million inhabitants, Kharkiv is the second largest city in Ukraine after Kyiv. The modern industrial city is an important transport hub and cultural centre in the north-east of the country. Tirana is the capital of Albania and the country’s cultural, economic and political centre.
