History[edit]

Its most probably part of the Privat Group of billionaire Igor Kolomoysky (PrivatBank, Ukraine International Airlines, Dniproavia, insolvent AeroSvit, CimberAir, Donbassaero).[2]

In 2006, regular flights to Moscow and Kaliningrad in Russia were initiated. In 2008 the company expanded its route network, then sharply reduced it.[3] Since 2008, Windrose Airlines has focused on charter flights. From 2010 to the present day, the airline has been licensed to operate regular flights, should the need arise.
