“Ukrzaliznytsia” will raise prices for international passenger tickets by up to 50%

“Ukrzaliznytsia” reduces discounts and harmonizes prices for international flights, which will allow for updating the fleet of cars and reduce the overall losses from passenger transportation.

According to the carrier’s press service, the new tariffs will come into effect with the introduction of a new schedule of passenger trains – from December 10, 2023.

“In previous years, to attract passenger traffic, Ukrzaliznytsia used discounts on virtually all international passenger flights. But now the company is reviewing this decision, as the losses from passenger transportation amount to more than UAH 12 billion every year. The change in tariffs will allow Ukrzaliznytsia to keep ticket prices at the current level to travel in messages within the country and continue the modernization of rolling stock, which is actively continuing even during a large-scale invasion,” the message said.

It is noted that according to a joint decision with the railways of neighboring countries, the price of tickets for the Kyiv-Warsaw-Kyiv train will increase by 72%, the demand for which remains hectic.

But at the same time, cheaper alternative options will be available in this direction. Depending on the seat class, the fare to Chelm and back, from where you can conveniently transfer to Warsaw, will increase by 4-11% for trains from Dnipro, 17-48% from Kharkiv, and 15-47% from Kyiv.

The fare on night trains to Vienna and Przemyśl will also increase by 3%. The price for travel in “Intercity+” Kyiv – Przemyśl – Kyiv will increase by 26%, and on the night train Odesa – Przemyśl – Odesa – in the range of 37-49%.

The UZ notes that the price of train tickets to Chisinau and Budapest will remain unchanged.

In addition, the company did not increase tariffs for socially important suburban transportation. The UZ noted that this rail transportation segment remains unprofitable for the carrier. The company will also continue to organize free evacuation flights from the frontline regions.
