Among the usual suspects for new route launches (, Pobeda, Turkish Airlines, Volotea and Wizz Air) are some unexpected carriers. Turkish based Corendon Airlines (which with its similarly named subsidiaries operates flight under IATA codes CD, XC and XR) grew rapidly in 2019, including taking over several leisure routes from German airports previously operated by Germania, before that airline collapsed at the beginning of 2019. An impressive newcomer is Ukraine’s SkyUp Airlines which launched scheduled flights in 2019. It managed to operate 93 routes during the year, ranking it just behind easyJet for biggest gain in routes.
