Ukraine-based carrier SkyUp Airlines has this week announced that it has obtained a Canadian Foreign Air Carrier Certificate to operate ACMI services in Canada, as the global push continues.
This comes following the news that the carrier had acquired FAR129 approval for operations in the United States.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
SkyUp Airlines of Ukraine Continues Global Push…
It is understood that SkyUp Airlines of Ukraine has acquired this approval in Canada for the following aircraft to perform international flights:
This means that the approval spans to seven Boeing 737-800 aircraft as well as two of the -700 variant.
Commenting on this milestone was Dmytro Seroukhov, the General Director of SkyUp Airlines:
“We are extremely grateful for the trust and support Transport Canada has given us during the approval process.”
“We are glad to have the opportunity to work in this important market for us and to offer Canadian airlines and partners our experience and capabilities to meet the growing demand for travel”.
Within this certification, SkyUp Airlines of Ukraine also received a charter permit, which is the permission to perform non-scheduled flights, as well as a CBSA carrier code, which registers them with the relevant border agencies too.
Overall, this is positive news for the carrier as they continue their push globally to expand as much as they can given the continued situation in Ukraine not enabling them to perform scheduled flights around Europe.
