Windrose Airlines, legally Wind Rose Aviation Company, is a Ukrainian charter airline based at Boryspil International Airport. Founded on 28 October 2003, the airline's headquarters is in Kiev; it operates charter flights to destinations in Western Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.

History

The airline was established in 2003 to provide charter flights to destinations in Europe and the Middle East. It is most probably part of the Privat Group of billionaire Igor Kolomoysky which also owns PrivatBank, Ukraine International Airlines, Dniproavia as well as formerly owned now-defunct airlines Cimber Sterling, Donbassaero and AeroSvit.[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. The airline was the first to carry out flights basing its aircraft at various airports in Ukraine.
