Under the new contract BGS will be providing SkyUp Airlines with ground handling services at Vilnius International Airport in Lithuania as well as into-plane fuelling services at Riga International Airport in Latvia and Tallinn International Airport in Estonia. The contract for services in Vilnius is signed for a period of 3 years, while services in Riga and Tallin will be provided for 6 months.

I trust that this contract will become the beginning of a successful and strong partnership.”

Dmytro Seroukhov, CEO at SkyUp Airlines, commented: “Entering the European market was one of the strategic goals of our company a year ago. The war just drastically accelerated this process. Together with our strategic partner Join UP!, we plan to carry out charter programs from Vilnius, Riga, Tallinn. It is highly important for us to have reliable partners such as BGS, who will provide quality service to our passengers.”
