Ukrainian carrier SkyUp Airlines has selected Skyport to handle import and export cargo at Prague Airport.

The contract follows SkyUp Airlines’ launch of a new service between Boryspil International Airport, Ukraine, and Prague Vaclav Havel Airport, Czech Republic.

Skyport chief executive David Adámek said: “The Ukraine market has been traditionally very strong in terms of cargo and mail volumes, and we are pleased to have been entrusted to partner with SkyUp to meet the growing needs of the cargo market in this region.”

Skyport expects to handle all types of freight under the new contract, from general cargo and air mail to dangerous goods, pharma, live animals, and valuable cargo.

“We started cargo transportation in 2020 at the very beginning of the pandemic and were among the first to re-equip our fleet of aircraft to bring medical cargo from China to Ukraine and the EU,” said SkyUp Airlines chief executive Dmytro Seroukhov.

“Later we switched back to passenger flights, but further developed cargo transportation in the luggage compartments.

“We believe in the potential of this area, and our cooperation with Skyport is the next step towards growth together with our reliable partners.”
